Guys (& Gals?),
a brief belated report from Wednesday night. When the rain stopped, it seemed too good an opportunity not to nip out for my first night excursion, so my mate Gary (in an ancient camouflage SIK) and I headed down to Bobbin Head. We harvested a few oysters from the wharf and headed out into the blackness (moon rise was not until Thursday am) – with the head torches off it was virtual sensory deprivation, not dissimilar to being in a float tank. We picked up a few small bream around the marina, then headed up the creek for more small bream and a lovely whiting (Gary’s). There was heaps of floating debris & I managed to collide with a substantial log, but no damage. In the upper reaches of the creek it became extremely shallow in places – I was forced to actually paddle. I had 1 good run, but it came to nought. Around midnight we called it a night, 1 keeper fish but much fun was had. I didn’t manage a swim this time out, just as well as it was freezing, particularly in the patches of (black) mist. No pics sorry, but just imagine 640x480 of black and you’d be close.

Unfortunately, due to the change in ownership of this web site and the lack of response by the owners to my requests to remove my email address from all administrative-level notifications and functionality, I have decided to remove my posts on AKFF. Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish. If you are desperate for the old content of this particular post, it is available below base64 encoded and bzip2 compressed.

Red, we used them for bait. I've found, particularly after a fresh, that local oysters are unbeatable bait, although you're right about keeping them on the hook - I use a very small baitholder, and try to keep a bit of the "foot" on each bait. I keep meaning to try a tiny treble which would certainly hold the oyster better but haven't as yet, baitmate would also work well but is fiddly.
