Been on the work treadmill big time but managed to sneak up to Copeton for the weekend. Copped 2 pokes in the eyes; low pressure (bit of rain which I’m certainly not complaining about) and releasing 600meg/day from the dam. Terrific.

Mate and I got 1 hit (cod) each. Mate landed his, I wasn’t good enough. Picked up half a Doz nice Yellas. Note the dark colour; they are starting to move up from the deep for spawning.

:mrgreen:

Hit SWA last Friday, Couldn't find a Barra but I found a new lump and got these 2 (117 & 109cm) in a couple of minutes on the same piece of bait. SWA road is really sh*thouse, I've never seen it that bad, it's normally Gunpoint road that's bad but it's a highway with all the road works.

Decided to hit the harbour after a mate from down south hit me up for a fishing trip. Initially was planning a land based sortie but after getting donnuts from the last two trips decided to clean out the boat, found out what the smell was crab bait from 3 months ago, man it stunk. So we got out on the harbour I knew the tides were big but I have a spot that is always good to me, I even boasted about it to my mate. Yeh we caught one baby shark at my legendary spot, sufficiently humbled I decided for plan B as my depth sounder died a couple of trips back, and we fishing blind I decided to have a poke at Talc Head I knew just off those rocks we have caught some decent reefies. Any way after an hour getting a heap of bait pickers my mate picked up the only fish of the day a 53 cm golden snapper. So not a total loss, but haven’t been on the water for a while so it was good to get out, it was beautiful out there.

Catching meterys is all good but seeing them swim away after a few pics is an even better feeling ... 8)

Release sequence. Swum it mid pic session too and she was out of there in no time.

Another bucket list fish sorted well done mate. :mrgreen: not bad for a beginner :rofl:

Couple of shots from around the foreshore this afternoon.

Definitely pays to check the wind direction as there's generally somewhere a bit more sheltered inside the harbour to keep fishing.

Anywhere past east point was getting hammered though.

Couple of fish from SWA yesterday, roads in good condition although pulled up on the way out there as one fisho had a couple of flats and used the spare, they had a mate heading out with one so continued to the ramp, launched no issues, was at the mouth of SWA and boat pulled up saying the car park was alight, he headed over to some other boats while i headed back to the ramp as i have been lucky before when this catches fire, pulled up to help some others put out the grass fire under and around a couple of cars and trailers parked in the grass, thanks to old mate that had a extinguisher, not sure if it was deliberately lit, cigi butt, once the fire was under control headed back out for a fish until dark, managed an 85 and a couple of 60's, back at the ramp another boats steering arm and tilt trims broken, drag them over to the ramp and he tells me there's a croc on the ramp, i pulled my boat up on the bank and turned on my headtorch on to find a 2.5M croc sitting under the sign at the bin, with a bit of persuasion she took off down the ramp and into the creek, helped old mate get his boat on the trailer, then got mine on the trailer, with the fire still burning this time a lot less intense through the leaf litter and grass i headed for home, half way back along the road another boat had bearing troubles but had a spare hub and was all good so headed off again
