Re: Crab catching at Lakes Entrance

Ok, well pipis are not common, there are a few on the surf beach but they are small and take quite a bit of digging to find. Crabs, most crab from the jetty on Bullock Island, I am amazed there are any crabs left there. Any sandy area around the entrance will have crabs. Land based it is difficult t...

Re: So what is happening offshore Lakes Entraqnce

Get a few pinkies and an occasional 40+ but no big ones and even the pinkies are patchy. Flatties have been fairly scarce had half a doz over three trips. No gummies. There have been a f...

Re: BCF/ANACONDA Branded Fishing Apparel-why?

Never wear branded stuff. I think if someone wants me to walk around advertising their product they should pay me to do so. $70 for a thin top. Tell em they're dreaming. I shop at the op shops get something like that without the brands for $5 keep my $65 for fuel and bait. Just a grisly old pensione...

Re: Ppb snapper

You will never see flatties. You may see what they are feeding on. In the case of smaller fish like KGW School whiting squid, you will see them if they are in quantity and under your boat. You will never see fish that are in the crevasses between rocks or in sea grass. So know your bottom type. On t...

Re: So what is happening offshore Lakes Entraqnce

Thanks for that Do you believe lakes is a little overfished? In a word no. There is reef all the way to Port Albert. Most of the year there is no more than 30-40 boats out. Holiday times there can be a few hundred but even then they are mostly spread out. I have over 200 reef marks within 15 mile o...

First drop 1 reasonable size pinky for a mate. Me just cod. He did it again almost straight away. Then ...

So what is happening offshore Lakes Entraqnce

Well in the last 10 days I have been offshore 4 times. Twice in the tinnie and twice in the charter boat. Not any big exciting snapper but a feed each time. Down the pipeline has been a bit disappointing. A few pinkies some nice flathead in closer 20mtrs. Had one very hard bite and lots of line take...

Re: Navionics vs cmap

I have installed both many times over the years. Not much in it really. They tend to leapfrog each other as each improves their product.
