A great spot the harbour for finding all sorts
Just love going for a cruise and trying different things, always find something

Great pics ninjafish


If there is water and it holds fish, then it is fun trying to fool them into eating what you offer!!

Especially when you can see them!

The Ray on that occasion was Middle Arm North of Sand Island.

Nothing surprises me in the harbour and have also caught Macks in close in very shallow water but there's usually deep water nearby. If you fish shallow on the high and deep on the low you soon learn their hunting ground around the structure closer to shore.

I'm with Agent86. If I want a feed I'll go get one, the rest of the time is exploring.

Zoomed in on it for you, and lightened it a little.

:lolpoint: Bit bored are ya Matt... perhaps you should get off the couch and go fishing. . then put up a post for us. :naughty:

Whilst not from the harbour this one was from the Wiltshire creeks area and the 2nd is a pretty sh#tty picture :banghead: of one out of the pod of a few dolphins playing with a screenshot from the movie I'd taken earlier. Just a couple more of my pictures to add to the collection of random stuff you don't see every day. :captain:

Prop strike mullet which was still swimming around just fine with a pretty major wound and a dolphin who was having a great time well up inside number 1 Wiltshire miles from the actual ocean. :D

Blue Spotted Maskray caught last night.

Feisty little bugger flapping like no tomorrow and flicking his barbed tail way over his head like a stock whip.

Has anyone any idea what these fish are?

I first saw a few about 2-3 inches high hanging around some leaf litter a while back then came across these models at about 6-7 inches high.

Weird critters with no real visible means of propulsion. They seem to glide like a bird then swoop fairly quickly.

Pic taken from video still shot.
