Headed out from roseville at 6am this morning to just before the spit. Tied up to an empty mooring and deployed some burly and some unweighted baits. Within 15 minuets the sounder came alive and we netted a few nice fat trevally, some almost legal snapper, bream, and a nice tailor that a few kings liked the look of. They had a few swipes at it and took off cruising in the burly trail. They refused all offerings no matter how light the leader and how well hidden the hook was, so kept floating baits downward, a few more tevally later and finally a king took a liking to a sluggo! Went 64cm and back in the drink. Over the next few hours saw more trevally, 5 more rats all 64 to 64.5cm on squid and a few dustings! Around lunch some jackets slid in snipping off hooks and destroying baits, and that was our que to leave.

All in all a nice day out on the water.

A nice little session, good to hear the kings are still around even if they are rats they still are great sport fish to catch. We fished the harbour a couple of weeks ago during the blow and only caught a couple of small bream. The saving grace was one huge leather jacket snagged on a bait jig.

@Dory The Fish I was using chook pellets for burly, pilchard and squid baits.
