Re: DEFINITELY NOT A RAT KING AT DOCKLANDS

That was a pretty big fish, not going to be able to skull drag that onto the dock. He'd have been absolutely gutted, fish of a lifetime off the shore.

Portsea pier

Had a bash on Portsea today. The boats were smashing couta on the drift, they were well within casting range but couldnt get them to take anything.

Re: pulley rig

You only really need the pulley rig if you are fishing rough ground. Any form of clipped down rig will give you better casting distance.

If it was getting dark, would've possibly been good for snapper with a Westerly pushing in like that?


I've never seen anyone catch a snapper off that pier. I wanted to fish until dark but the waves were smacking into the deck.

First time out in months

Managed to pick up 7 salmon, largest just on size. All went back to grow bigger. Have to say some of my fellow fishers were not so generous w...
