Port Stephens- Back to Broughton (Monster)


Recommended Posts

G’day raiders, 

Just a quick report about yesterday because I’m away atm with limited service. 

Headed out with @back cruncher yesterday early trying to beat the weather but we weren’t successful doing that. Slow trip to the island and back. 
Hardest part after not fishing the island for the longest hiatus was which spot to start. Mick and I both concluded that who cares at least we can get up there. We both suggested the same name and that was it. Got to our spot and Mick comes up right second cast to a good snapper. My first cast a solid pike lol 😝. Micks on again and I follow suit with a decent one. Continue our drift pretty happy with the results so far. And then I managed to stay connected to a monster. I was hoping a new PB but wasn’t to be coming in at 90 but probably around the 10kg mark. Decided to release the fish and we were rewarded in our subsequent drifts with a few more for the table. Cracking day on the water and headed slowly back home in a ripping South Westerly pretty happy with ourselves! 

Thanks for reading, 

cheers scratchie!!!

I dream of catching Snapper as big as the pair you are holding in the picture, as for the MONSTER that you threw back, Wow, what a beauty. I really must drag my boat up to Port Stephens and go and try my luck at Broughton. 🙂

Thanks Gordo! Mick and I had great day. Those fish mick is holding are perfect eating size. You gotta come up and give it a go one time 🤙

Nice work Jeff - smashed the Reddit’s again - you’re a legend mate, well done. A really nice feed and a big girl released to keep them coming.

Thanks Bob. We work hard for our fish but a little less work in this day. 😄
