Bate Bay Sunday


Recommended Posts

Headed out to bate bay on Sunday 

Quite a few boats fishing Osbourne Shoal. Counted at least 6 close in to each other.

Weather was good early on, but leading into midday the wind and current picked up across the bay. Drift running at around 3knots.

Tried for some snapper, but no go. Picked up 45cm & 34cm blue spots as I drifted off the reef onto sand & a 28cm nanny. Caught and released a bunch of wrasses, rock cods ect.

Tough going at this time of year but, at least, you got to go out and claimed a nice little feed of fresh fish. Here's to better days on the water. Cheers, bn

Thanks Neil, considered going off for a flatty drift, but stuck to the reef thinking the bite would come on.

Some fillets for the table, that's what counts.

Too right, filleted them up last night and into a beer batter.

Good feed, I've heard that nannygai are good eating.

I don’t mind the Nannygai, they go good on the plate. A lot of the time they are too small to get a decent fillet off.

Will do - didn’t know it was you.

I was in a bit of a hurry to get to the ramp &  changed after eating spray on the run back in.
