Avoca Rocks


Recommended Posts


Headed to Avoca Friday arvo to wet a line and bumped into local, Ray R.

By this stage I had lost about $15 bucks worth of tackle and was getting rather frustrated.

I pulled in a small cod but nothing for the table.


Got to talking with Ray and after a few tips on a paternoster rig with running sinker, and my casting technique was hoiking it out there past the rocky bottom to the sandy bottom.

Minutes later Ray's rod bows and a small ray (not the human variety) was hooked and kindly released.

I must say that it's great to finally meet Ray. What a top bloke. Thanks for the pointers mate.

You are one lucky Fishraider, Peter! Yep, Ray is a top bloke ...... maybe we should have a mini social down there some time ....... after I get back from up north! I'd love to spend some time down there fishing, even give the yak a try in that lovely bay there, flicking at the boats!

You'll have learned some valuable 'local tips' from Ray - hope it is not too long before you get into some good fish.

G'day Peter, was good to meet you and I'm sure we will have many more rock sorties in the future.

I am glad you found the tips useful and appreciate the kind words, I am known to have the odd chat and over the years have found a lot of helpful fisho's willing to give me ideas , tips and tricks, I guess now I am like one of those old blokes that I use to bombard with questions when I was a youngin' ..

Anyway Pete, I'm glad I was of some help to you, I even knew the guy building his new rod for him..

Yep RayR is a top bloke. Although he was too chicken to brave the elements with me last night. Ray, I didn't catch anything with your squid although I caught and later released the biggest taylor I have ever seen. I reckon it would have been in excess of 60cm. It took your whole squid.

I must say Ray is a great mate of mine and is very honest and helpful but don't get between him and a good feed.

Regards, Hutcho
