    I actually went fishing yesterday (I never go fishing)...

    Caught about 78 snapper between 25 and 34cm which went back (boat min of 35). Ended the day with 10 snapper between 35-40cm, four big trevally (~50cm) and two good kahawai between 3 of us.

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Nets every where sat morning so I don't expect good catches like this to last much longer.....The gurnard might get some pressure instead soon.

    A bit of weather puts most people off it would seem.



    As expected with nets choking every channel yesterday my catch dropped considerably from 49 yesterday to 13 today.

    Not that I am starving just an observation.








    That is with a net half the legal maximum length BTW.

    Yes it does but more when we have heavy falls on the plains and Richmond ranges and the Appleby river comes up,...it hasn't had a chance to rise yet.

    Yea interesting that is.
    It's taken me the last 4-5 years to really learn the estuary on my side and how to fish it most effectively.....
    Your side no doubt should be just as good but it is 20-30min drive instead of 3-5min and I'm not starving.
