Botany Bay


Recommended Posts

Ello fellow raiders,

headed out for a boxing day fish with 2 mates of mine..

i was hoping for sunrise start but my stupid mate slept in dndt he,

so i dndt get onto the water till 8am ish,

i headed over to the cooks river ramp and i could not believe how PACKED it was OMG :1yikes:

its got a fairly big car park nd EVERY spot was taken and the surrounding streets had trailers parked everywher...

u had to c it to believe it.. so i turned back nd ended up launching under neath tom uglys which wasnt to bad after all..

anyways back to fishing headed over to my 1st bream spot hoping to land a few keepers.. plenty of bream and snapper landed but every1 of the buggers were ALL under size..

id say we caught around 15 to 20 at this 1 spot although all under size it was still plenty of fun..

after an hour or so i was sick of these little buggers so i cruised over to the 3rd runway nd parked amongst about 10 boats hehe :1prop:

we threw everythng dwn there squid,prawns,pillies, nd my special bream dough mix ALL FOR ZILCH,

the bay was looking awesome harldy a ripple so i thought id cruise out past the heads around cronulla we went...

we stopped at a few spots for ZILCH pot luck really as ive never really been passed molineaux point be4..

the day was getting on and i was getting reder and reder frm sunburn as i left the sunscreen at home :thumbdown:

we tried 1 more of my fav spots just south of the hot water outlet.. the plce was on fire we caught a few more under sized snappers then landed 3 keeper breams going 37ms,36ms and 31ms, also i foul hooked a port jackson beautifull thing it was got a couple of photos and back he went.. in all the excitement we seen a school of tailor on the surface and a near by boat was onto them 1 after another oh the port jacko went roughly 40cms little bugger but nice to look at.

so all in all a fun day and plenty of fish caught but only 3 keeper bream.. hope every1 hada nice chrissy and was able to get a fish in...

cheers steve... :1fishing1:
