Figtree Point, Quakers Hat & Quakers Hat Bay are within rowing distance of Tunks and produce well at certain times. It's quiet ATM with these chilly water temps tho. Many yrs ago as a ruggie would row over to the wrecks at Salt Pan Cove with the other local kids & we caught some thumper bream & whiting near the wrecks and the dropoff on the full tide in summer. There were 0 swing moorings then!! Use lots of fine particle berley & no sinker.

Casting unweighted baits at the channel-end of the wrecks in Salt Pan Cove works well. Have pulled out some BIIIG bream and some very decent flatties on the drop off. Anywhere along the channel @ Tunks goes off during spring due to the arm being a spawning ground for most estuary species. Have even seen a few large salmon (caught on fresh squid) needing a beach landing on the boat ramp. In winter though, travel a couple of hundred metres towards middle harbour where the arm meets Fig Tree Point. Follow the western shoreline around to Clive Park (rocky & bushy waterfront) and you'll see a sailing club with a big deck on the water. Thirty metres or so off that deck is a very deep drop off... (goes to about 35m, one of the deepest in Sydney)... drop down a live bait (squid if you can) early morning or at dusk and berley well...... HOLD ON TIGHT.

Welcome aboard Mark. :1welcomeani:

Awesome contribution for your 1st post :thumbup: Howc many people launch at Tunks, then run from fish to find fish?? :wacko: breaking golden rule #1

I remember vividly every spring big schools of Frigates doing happy laps around Bunny Rabbits' chasing tiny school prawns in only a foot of water. Plenty of fish in Long Bay!
