So i just spent 10 days camping down in Dalmeny , near Narooma. I must say i love the place and will be planning many more trips down there. Dad towed the campervan down there and i followed in my car with the boat, so it worked out really good. I actually even took the boat out a few times by myself in the lake and i was able to do it all myself, i have no worries if i ever want to take the boat out during the year. Sadly during the trip our dog passed away, but besides that we had a nice trip and caught some fish. A few days were out because of the weather but besides that we were out on the Lake or fishing off the Islands. Got some nice Snapper (and a new PB just under 50cm) some boring but tasty Flatties, Decent Trevally, Annoying Leatherjacket, Mullet, Yakkas (in the millions) and i even got to feed some local rays at the boat ramp. Some of them were massive !






Anyway, thanks for reading fellas. It's been a while since i've posted a report, i probably should start doing it more frequency.

Nice report and I like the pix. Sadly I was stuck at home for the last few days when the weather seemed to be quite good. Did you go out to Montague? And if so, did you see any kings being caught?

I noticed you have a normal type sedan, not 4wd, did you have any problems with the slippery surface on the ocean ramp at Dalmeny?

Cheers fellas.

Ben: we got pretty close to the Island while fishing, had Livies on the bottom, top and mid water but got no Kings what so ever. Had a lot of Livies bitten, probably just Letherjacket. And yeah I've got the sedan, we launched at Dalmeny with it once and almost lost the car because it started slipping down the ramp ! Ended up dragging the boat up the ramp with the strap until the wheels were off the green stuff, then bought it up. After that we just used my uncles 4WD as he lives down there.

Yes, we were lucky we put in at low tide so I didn't have to drive the boat up the slippery stuff. Not a problem at High tide as you're above the slime. If you go out to Montague again, take big squid (as fresh as possible) as the kings sometimes prefer dead squid strips (big) to live yakkas. Strange but true! Not the little californian ones. Local squid about 20cm - 30cm long. We were out there with lovely big yellowtail - no action. Then some guys in another boat gave us the word. We only had one squid = 2 baits. Turned it into a nice 75cm king before they went off the bite.
