Port Kennedy is hard work

Went out early this morning on a mates boat and as he lives in Port Kennedy we decided to launch from that ramp. Really surgey with a 3 metre swell running, went past the sisters whilst still dark and headed out wide, well we had little choice as it is just flat sand for miles and miles after crossing FFB .....around 18nm out in a little over 40 metres we got hammered with large skippy, moving out another couple of miles we still struggled to find decent ground eventually finding some rubble strewn bottom.  First drift four under sized snapper all around 48cm, moving slightly further offshore these two hit within minutes, nothing more indeed bites were hard to come by still with a brace of good snapper we had nothing really to complain about.

Went out yesterday NNW from Bent street ramp...rat pinkies only. went to 48 meter mark also (which is a long way in itself) Tried and tried, heaps of pro craypots lines drifted- no luck. That's fishing :)

Heard a report from someone that the Long Point ramp is covered in sand making it nearly impossible to launch/retrieve there?


Tight lines!




Well, it wouldn't be if it wasn't...

A crusher came barreling toward us from out wide and we quickly wondered what he was up to.  Turns out he was by himself and had gone out ridiculously early to try some deep dropping in 320 metres, had dropped four baits on two rods and immediately both hooked up, trouble was both had double headers......refusing to throw good fish away and knowing they couldn't be returned, he dropped off two puka to us .... Waste not want not. Bagged us out by doing so.  Thanks mate, you know who you are !

 When we were coming back in Friday afternoon, was slippery as hell even with a fourby but my mate has modified his trailer to mirror mine so even with a 7.2 it self centres and he added a boat latch......neat to retrieve in swell. Facing the ramps the rhs had plenty of water
