Port Hacking


Recommended Posts

Headed out early this morning, near Lilli Pilli. It was a bit windy and rainy, not the best of weather, with the wind gusting along fairly strongly at times.

Used pillies and hooked up a few tailor. The biggest was 37 cm, 3 others just over 30, and quite a few throwbacks under 30, so not big fish. Tried fish strips on the bottom for the usual small reddies, and picked up a bonus crab. As I was packing up, I threw the line out, no bait on the hooks, so I could untangle the line, and as I retrieved the line, a 38 cm trevally grabbed the ganged hooks.

Tried spinning lures in different spots out of the wind, for nothing. Did not even see any fish jumping at all.

As I was heading home, I saw 2 fishos erecting a small portable gazebo on the wharf of the Lilli Pilli baths, no doubt to keep the rain off them. Certainly an unusual sight.

38cm Trev on an unbaited setup... Surely that's a raider record! As always, nice work mate.

I wonder what would happen to the gazebo and the guys underneath if the wind picked up? :/ :lol:

Not bragging, but can do better than that. A 67cm kingie on a bare hook on a 10 pound handline - that was some excitement.

The 2 guys were tying down the gazebo to the hand rails, however, a big blast of S/W wind would fly the gazebo to Kurnell. :D
