Hey chaps,

Cough, sneeze, cough :roll: any one else keen to pull a sicky weather permiting of course this coming Monday to fish Lorne offshore and sheltered areas whatever suits your fancy? 8)

At this stage its Poddy and I signed up and we are hoping for light Northerly or North Westerly winds. Salmon, trevally, squid and hopefully pinkies is what I'll be targetting. I aim to drop anchor 100 metres from the pier and burley up a school of fish and then maybe follow the guru around for a bit of a troll.

Milt,

Guys
putting a post up like this just isn't right...who knows what can happen - not for now. Besides, hasn't anyone ever told you - sickys are best on Fridays - then you have the weekend to recover.

Nah mate - my back is still on the mend. It's feeling pretty good and I should be right from the next weekend on - would love to hear a report from Lorne though.

I'd love to Milt but I've taken a few too many genuine sickies of late. I'll be crossing my fingers for Northerly winds for you :D

Sniffing around this thread like a hungry bronzie out the back of the breakers :wink: I kid, i kid!

Any idea of any recent action down that way Milt? Heard of some good action off the rocks further down to Marengo, with trevs and sweep, so they may be on the go around lorne too.

Yes i have heard the trev's are about and are about the 1-2 kg mark as well as the ever reliable sambos swimming about. Hopefully the weather is favourable otherwise a change in date may occur.

Dave the trev's are frequenting Queenscilff harbour too!!!

If all goes well I'll have plenty of salmon fillets to use as snapper bait this season. Heck I may just smoke a few too :? :lol:

Poddy I'll keep an eye out for the weather and phone you over the weekend.

Jason I'm looking at going down there again Novemberishhh over a weekend I'll keep you updated.

I should be having Monday off, so i'm a possibility at this stage. Still got the 2 yak-carrying pajero Milt? If swell isn't great but you're still keen, the Queenscliff & St Leonards area options are always a good as a back up. Would love to hit the bluewater though :)

Mushi I may be able to help you out here as l have offered this service to Mr, Poddy, if he doesn't take it up and the chap doesn't come along that wanted to try yak fishing in my second yak. I'll let you know tomorrow lunch time.

Poddy I'm all setup for salt water with bait, some smelly smelly burley and some gulp 6' sandworms. So the salty the water the better :D .

If the blue water is a bit offish I'll consider Queenscliff depending on which way the wind is blowing of course. Speak tomorrow.

No dramas milt, looks like i'll be in queesncliff over sunday night, so i'll hook up with you guys on the way or at lorne for a akff great ocean road convoy. That's if it's all a goer of course.

Regarding the fresh Poddy, i'm sort of more feeling the lure of the salt right now.

General BoM forecast ain't too bad so far...
Victorian Central Coast, Cape Otway to Wilsons Promontory:
Monday: Northerly winds 15/20 knots shifting west/northwesterly. Seas 1 to 2 metres. Southwest swell 1 to 2 metres.

Unfortunatelly today wasn't an option the alarm went off at 4:30 as I snuck down stairs to turn on the laptop to the sounds of 30 knot wind in the background. It didn't sound all that pretty "Poddy agreed:!!! :cry: beddy bies for me :arrow: :)

Oh well there's always next week to catch a glimpse of Poddy's ***** Rambo dream :p
