Botany Bay 20/5


Recommended Posts

Dave (granpop) made the long trip from canberra for his maiden fish on the bay.

I met him at the ramp about 8:30 and we headed out with hopes of bream, trev's, reds and lizards.

we headed straight for the hot water outlet and fished the farm, things started to look promising when I boated a nice bream of 35cm followed by two small trev's but apart from 2 yaka's (1 foul hooked) that was all she wrote.

we then tried watts reef for nil, drifted east of the cans for nil, towra point for nil, dolls point to brighton for 1 puffer fish caught on a flatty rat HB and then ran down along the side of the 1st runway for




during the whole day we only boated a few small tailor and 2 or 3 very small reds and a couple of very small flatties so as far as fishing goes IT SUCKED :1badmood::thumbdown:

sorry i couldnt get you on a fish Dave but i enjoyed meeting you and your more than welcome to come and stand in the wind, rain and slop anytime you like mate.

Hi Outnumbered

Got home about 6.30 to NO SYMPATHY from wife, sons, daughter-in-law or grandkids! Thanks for the trip anyway and I will wait until summer/early autumn before I try it again!

May try for a 'Raiders social day in spring if we are not wandering the country.

Did you do any good in the last couple of hours??
