Forum rules WARNING: Kayaking, and Kayak Fishing are DANGEROUS ACTIVIES, and present a number of inherent risks.
Participation in any events organised using the Fishing Trips section is entirely at your own risk. Neither the organising member(s), nor the administration team of the Australian Kayak Fishing Forum, can accept any reponsibility for loss, damage, injury or death arising from kayak fishing trips.
It is the responsibility of the individual to ensure that they paddle and fish within their ability, and not to put themselves in harm’s way.
Even where safety suggestions are offered within the trips section, or elsewhere on the AKFF site, it is up to the individual kayaker to ensure that precautions appropriate to your trip circumstances are undertaken, and that all legal requirements of your state or territory are followed.

I know the east coast marlin fishos often reel in a marlin head with no body... Cant tell me that was just a little doggy. Btw fishnfreak it didnt look like it in the photo but that was a 16ft shark, bigger than our yaks .
Excellent, most likely targets will be whiting and flathead. I'll be burleying up for snapper but given the area and the reports i'm 99% sure i'll only find undersize. Waldo, worth you fishing the surface too, HEAPS of garfish around at the moment. I've finished putting my marks in and have found 4 that are all within a few hundred metres of eachother. Given the distances between the others i say we hit them so that we have a bit of choice once we're 3km out. I would suggest you guys launch at the brighton jetty, it will knock around a km off your journey if not you can just paddle up from seacliff and meet me on your way out. Being 6:30 in the morning parking wont be an issue. There is a ramp 50m south of the jetty, in front of the SLSC and a ramp 30m north of the jetty. I reccomend the northern one though it makes no difference. If you guys launch there it means we'll be out at the grounds sooner. If you would rather launch and fish seacliff, no dramas but its a few k's between my marks out there. Opinions please.
I'm just glad you could decipher my mouse writing skills, i'd hate for you blokes to drive into the water . Btw Lee welcome to drive onto the beach to launch the yak but i'm betting someone cracks the shits (especially if you drive it down for the retrieve ) the old folks around here tend to get a bit crabby. All you have to do though is say "the sign says you cant use the ramp to launch powered craft, my craft is unpowered biatches" .
