Flatiies/kingies Around The Harbour


Recommended Posts

Hi all

The last few fishless trips had me thinking i was doing something wrong or i have a Jinx

which my Boat has landed fish but not me on the rod.


With a call Sat arvo from my Brother to hit out side and the harbour in morning which i was up for it.

3.45am the alarm went off and i was up

with the boat all ready ,on it went and off to Rosebay ramp, which i meet another mate with his boat.

The day had started and nothing had gone wrong :biggrin2:

We both headed outside to do a drift for flatties the seas where sloppy but got to the spot

then dropped away.within 5mins pulling up some flatties small but then start to get bigger.

continued this for a hour and had 3 in the tank.With my Brother feeling a little sick even before we went out

he had his head down for to long and then felt worse.At this stage it was 3-0 his way and thinking i was going to go fishless again. He said i will be right just keep fishing man So i did.

I landed 3 more and dropped 2 at the boat :ranting2: he was getting worse so i called it and we headed back inside.

We got near the heads and he was feeling better, So we went to North head /car park and anchored to drop some squid to see if there where some kings around. 1 hour passed and was quiet for us but others getting little kings/throw backs.

I got hit and it felt strange but pulled drag, up it comes :ranting2: seargent baker 63cm he went back.

we stuck it out and my mate returned from out side within 15mins he was on and landed a 67cm.

He then landed a 60cm on 2kg gear.as that was going on my bro had a hit and was on ,with the twinpower 4000 screaming :thumbup: it was a good fish within a few minutes it was boat side and landed around 69cm on a 15lb setup.His first legal king

Thinking i was then not going to match him the torsa went off and wasn,t long

it was in the boat in a flash it didn,t take much drag a little unfair using the torsa.

My first legal king 68cm.

here are some pics


whilst we where waiting

Good stuff Johnno,

Its nice when you get off the mark for the new year, tends to be a big relief!

Top fish............. and it was a bit sloppy out there eh! There was more than just one of you out there sick that day.

I ended up taking my deckie into the wedding cakes as he was going a little green. Unfortunately, we had no luck though.
