Anyone keen for a fish on either day hopefully to see Poddy land his first salt water salmon and be aplauded by his fellow mexican yakking friends :D

Afternoons would probably suit me and the salmon schools better, but I'm open to suggestions of the majority. Or perhaps a tag team effort is the go???

As far as tides go rising tide Sat arvo, high tide 5:30 ish and Sunday about 6 ish hmmm. Hmmmm full moon out as well aaawwaawwwoooooooooooooooooo :twisted: :shock: who's keen?

I reckon I'm half a chance for the 13th Milt (work on da 12th), and will be packing a paper mache salmon in my rear hatch to whip out from a distance. We'll see what ya offerings at the temple of Ward Rooney bring to the high seas weather wise...apparently he's fond of Monte Carlo biscuits and a cuppa tea. :D

Ooops, sorry Squidder didn't mean to bulldoze a Sunday option (just read the Sat arvo bit). Go with what the weather brings I'm thinking. :oops:

I'm keen if the weather plays fair. PPB forecast looks sweet for this weekend:

Saturday
Variable winds of 5 to 10 knots. Waves of less than half a metre.

Sunday
Variable winds of 5 to 10 knots. Waves of less than half a metre.

Dare I say it, it might be a little too calm :shock: :shock:

Rod there's not alot happening on calmer days from what people have been telling me. Despite the reports its all hit and miss at present, a friend went out yesterday morning in perfect conditions and only managed a few undersized pinkies. He normally returns with his bag limit???

Never the less bring on next weekend :D :D :D

Milt, I have also heard that calmer days see less action, but remember how calm it was the last time we got stuck into the sambos at Ricketts Point?

True!!! What an afternoon that was!!! :shock: It would be interesting to keep an eye on this theory calm v's choppy conditions and measure results? :roll:

Looks like you and me Squidder.
How about we do a recon prior to launching to see if they are up and about?
I'll give you a call tomorrow

Agreed Milt, a weather/catch rate analysis would be interesting. I get the feeling that our good catch on that calm day might have been more good fortune than good planning - it's easily the best catch I've had when it's been flat, choppy days seem generally worse for paddling but better for catching :wink:

Rod, pre-fishing recon sounds like a good plan, speak to you tomorrow.
