Got down to Callala bay in Jervis bay on friday night. Had some work around the house and got on the water at about 1:30. The weather was beautiful, and the water was farily warm.
Launched near the boat ramp and paddled about 300 meters, when i came to my spot i anchored and started flicking some plastics, got a few bites on the pearl watermelon, only little, wasnt able to hook em. Trolled a Kokoda sprog in and out of all the boats to no success. Then went for squid just before night and nothing.
I did run into a seal doing flips in the water, Hopefully there were no sharks following him :shock: . The Seal has made my uncles bertram his home now, he sleeps on it all day.

On sunday i launched from the same spot and was trolling and flicking plastic and did not get one bite. Took out a squid jig and only managed to get one. I also ran into the Seal once again sleeping on my uncles boat.

Even though i only managed to get one squid i really loved it out on the kayak. I ran into a few other yakers, one had more luck then me with 3 squid. I've found that there are a few more people fishing off yaks down there. I saw 3 this weekend.

Cant wait for my next trip down to Jervis bay, im really hooked now.

Also that blue crate in the back i was using is excellent, much beetter then a milk crate. I had packets and packets of soft plastics, my anchor (2.5kg weight), bottle of water, with alot of room to spare. Its long and using all the space in the back of the espri, and it's not that wide, fits perfectly inside.

I havnt been down the South Coast for a long time. Your photos show how good jervis bay is.
I like the low crate you have and today when I tested my Espri with the new rod holder, I took the old milk crate away, and it felt more free, streamlined and better. I think a milk crate on the Espris is a bit cumbersome and you cant get back far enough on steep waves. :D

Gday Vuki,

Nice report. It sure is a nice spot in the Bay. I have been doing most of my paddling in the Basin since moving down here but I really should get out into the Bay some time soon. Will keep a look out for you.

Good report, donkeys years since I was in your area so very interested.

I've not been a crate fan although they are practical, but after fishing with Gunston have had a rethink. as my gear spreads along the rear wells.

My wife has a couple of shopping baskets, and after trying in each of the yak rear wells they are the perfect compromise; roomy without the bulk.

To buy a basket rather than 'acquire' it seems strange though...can't beat the thrill of the chase for a milk crate

the people on the boat next to me were saying that the seal actually jumped inside the boat when the weather was bad. Might aswell leave a bed on the boat, make it a 5 star seal hotel.

I've found that jervis bay is a bit quiet throughout winter for bream, flathead and snapper. But usually u can catch squid and whiting all year round, just didnt have the right bait for whiting.
