dead weight at narra lakes entrance


Recommended Posts


Had a crack at the entrance channel to narrabeen lakes on saturday night..

Was using small gulp prawns and jerk shads on nitro jig heads on the outgoing tide, and on 3 occasions, something hit with a 'surge' rather than a 'smack'... made a short run of varying speeds and then just became total dead weight.

I was fishing pretty light, 6lb braid and fluoro leader on 2-4kg, and 9lb mono on a 3-5kg.. was just after tailor, salmon, bream and flatties, and I could not budge this thing once it stopped.

Bent 2 hooks, and busted a good knot on this thing... I didn't want to catch it after the first time, it just kept going for my offerings.

Just wondering what you guys reckon it might have been... my guess is a ray of some description, but I'm a bit confused as it would have to be fairly big to be impossible to budge, however light my gear.. too big to bother going for 2-4 inch plastics surely?

Any other ideas?

there is alot of kelp running in and out of the lake at the moment especially at the entrance

That was definitely my first thought too, but I'm pretty sure at least one run was in the opposite direction to current, the others were perpendicular(-ish) to it.
