Fatties at Bayview

So after the sale of my boat this week I have a sense of freedom to back to my grass roots of wading the flats with lures on light lines. I got out yesterday afternoon and was quickly reminded that I love this type of fishing. Light, easy and super fun. I fished Bayview for…

Boat Sold

This was a week of mixed feelings. I have sold my boat because we are going to knock our house down and rebuild. It makes sense to sell it while we need the money and I don’t have much time to get a boat on the water. I’m really happy it went to a really…

The next generation.

The next generation. 8yrs old and the first time I’ve put a long rod in his hands. I went with the 555 (10’6″) rod, 55b reel 10lb mono. Perfect setup for him, long enough but light enough to handle. 12 fish later (10 dart, 1 whiting, 1 Flathead) and he is hooked on beach fishing.…

The process was pretty simple, however, I had to look around a bit to work out how the inlet and outlet system…

Narrabeen Lake flathead and whiting

This morning was my first fish of the season after the winter shutdown, though after this morning I’m not sure if fish know it’s time to wake up. It was quiet to say the least. I fished from 6:30am to 11am and worked really hard for two small flathead and two whiting. It was a…
