Chubbs93 « Wed Jul 27, 2016 3:36 pm » 12 crabs from shoal bay this mourning nice quick trip, there's heaps of smaller crabs just under size and a few weren't worth keeping not full at all was good to see water police doing safety gear checks and checking your catch got a nice feed anyhow
nomad « Tue Jul 26, 2016 4:49 pm » lozzel - i went to east arm last week in the big winds but no you could get in - couldnt even walk on the pontoon. had to go to dinah. both are ok on light winds
2 brothers fishing « Mon Jul 25, 2016 1:15 pm » Can you launch at the mouth of Finniss or is it closed off?
harbourharder « Mon Jul 25, 2016 10:22 am » hey Nomad which boat ramps do you think the breakins are happening. I know the locals around Barramundi drive take their security pretty seriously after a chat to one of them.
nomad « Sat Jul 23, 2016 9:44 pm » I hope im wrong but i can see a heap of break ins happening at bynoe now
AJay « Sat Jul 23, 2016 9:33 pm » barramundi drive and dundee rd, barramundi drive is the pick of the two, dunno about tides Ive always worked on half tide up and had plenty of water
fish4me123 « Sat Jul 23, 2016 8:57 pm » Hi what are the names of the 2 ramps that are on the dundee side that take you past indian island and tides needed to use them
nomad « Sat Jul 23, 2016 8:27 pm » yeah bigcroc i did an overnighter and got sharked again. got a few reefies but that was it. trolled for ages while checking out new ground for nothing- except for the little maccie that banged into the side of my hull.
jabsy « Sat Jul 23, 2016 3:50 pm » Soaked a few pots at SWA for 3 smallish crabs this morning, just two pulls. The road is good up until the second concrete gutter, then the next 4km to the turnoff is poop, but fine from there on again.
bigcroc « Sat Jul 23, 2016 1:12 pm » fished North Gutter last night big fish on the sounder at every drop but nothing on the chew left with 2 stripeys,a few small macks this morning near bottlewasher.Anyone else have donuts
hottuna « Fri Jul 22, 2016 2:32 pm » I tried to take some pics of ramp yesterday but it doesn't show anything really. It's just an open beach now
hottuna « Fri Jul 22, 2016 2:30 pm » Lucky you did jeff. They stopped launching boats early this morning after an incident
WheelerIn « Fri Jul 22, 2016 2:17 pm » Anyone got pics of Dundee ramp? I've decided to go the long way round from Darwin to Dundee but would like to see how bad it really is.
jeffish « Fri Jul 22, 2016 11:56 am » Yeah I dropped out of a trip to Dundee today , glad I did after reading the comments below. But as Mat said it was like that for years ,just glad we've got softer toilet paper now
scottmac « Fri Jul 22, 2016 8:23 am » Looks like I dodged a bullet by going to Keseick to launch instead of Dundee. Glass off, but fishing quiet. Not a Mac or Tuna to be seen anywhere. Got a mixed bag of reefies. Nothing to write home about though
Darwinblue « Fri Jul 22, 2016 12:05 am » Just put heap of spots for blaze etc in new sounder and then read about Dundee ramp.....they're there for November now at least
Matt Flynn « Thu Jul 21, 2016 11:45 pm » no GPS units back then, no 4-stroke motors, only handlines, squid and rough toilet paper, life wuz hard
bigcroc « Thu Jul 21, 2016 11:15 pm » yer right matt roflmfao
bigcroc « Thu Jul 21, 2016 11:14 pm » head out the chanel fid the edge of mandorah or even head inside charles point good jewys there look for lumps and fish on your sounder .
lozzel « Thu Jul 21, 2016 11:05 pm » Have been fishing Elizabeth and East arm since we have been here. Any other options for next week, looks like Dundee will be out i got a 4.2 tinny
Matt Flynn « Thu Jul 21, 2016 11:05 pm » We had to use the ramp for years like that
bigcroc « Thu Jul 21, 2016 10:55 pm » is anyone keen for a trip wide maybe over night pinacles
Anon « Thu Jul 21, 2016 10:34 pm » WOW. So dundee will be basically unfishable for months and months now while they do the new ramp
hottuna « Thu Jul 21, 2016 10:31 pm » You could literally watch the sand build up on the ramp as we ripped boats out
hottuna « Thu Jul 21, 2016 10:29 pm » It was glass out today all day today and people were still getting wrecked. They had to get digger down to clears and off ramp to stop the tractors bogging. As soon as the tide covered the rocks near the marker afew hundred to the right of the ramp there was nothing to stop the swell from surging in from multiple directions.
Anon « Thu Jul 21, 2016 10:21 pm » What not retrieving on the incoming tide at all now? Weather looks calm as with 0.1m waves and 0m swell. 4kn winds
hottuna « Thu Jul 21, 2016 9:31 pm » No tractor retrieves after 3pm tomoro (22nd) due to tide and weather.
hottuna « Thu Jul 21, 2016 8:45 pm » Yeah man, tractors were getting stuck and boats were getting smashed. All on glass out
bigcroc « Thu Jul 21, 2016 8:27 pm » a few boats swamped as well from a guy that lives there
hottuna « Thu Jul 21, 2016 6:19 pm » 6 boats today and took over 1 hour to get retrieved. The sand has completely covered the concrete
BarraMick « Thu Jul 21, 2016 12:16 pm » anyone got pics of the Dundee ramp works. sounds like a bad joke. new fishing plan being made for the weekend now. no doubt it will still be f.....d next long weekend as well.

Chubbs93 « Thu Jul 21, 2016 6:43 am » anyone know if works started on shady ramp yet
Lats « Thu Jul 21, 2016 12:31 am » Bigcroc, if you go out that way, take HEAPS of rigs and sinkers. Sharks R Us at the moment
Lats « Thu Jul 21, 2016 12:30 am » Jeffish, next time I'm out there, I'm going exploring to find new turf
Lats « Thu Jul 21, 2016 12:29 am » I'll throw you the coordinates when I get home in a couple of weeks. Very close to East Arm wharf
