Name / Username of Angler: Davey G
Fish Type/Name: Sammy the Squid
Length: Approx 38cm from tip to beak
Date/Time of Capture: 2/9 at 12pm
Location of Capture: Old Mans Hat, Sydney Harbour
Type of Lure/Bait used: Gulp Sandworms (camo)
Comments: The squid grabbed my sandworm as I was floating it over reef and he was jagged in one tentacle. Upon capture he made his displeasure known by giving my yak a good inking. So I took him home and ate him. Yum.

Name / Username of Angler: Davey G
Fish Type/Name: Trevor the Trevally
Length: 33cm to tail
Date/Time of Capture: 2/9 between 8am-12pm
Location of Capture: Bluefish Point/inside North Head
Type of Lure/Bait used: Gulp Sandworms (camo)
Comments: Caught 6 of these little blighters all around the same size. They give a good account of themselves on light tackle and fight like a much larger fish.

Note. You may 'think' that this is in fact the same fish as Gatesy has previously entered but if you look closely at Gatesy's entry you will clearly note that his fish has Hovinka written on its side. Mine does not. So there....

Fish Type/Name: Ralph (Bream)
Length: 36cm total length
Date/Time of Capture: 2/9 at 7:20am
Location of Capture: 2nd Runway, Botany Bay
Type of Lure/Bait used: Squidgy Flickbait (Evil Minnow) & 1/16th jighead
Comments: Fordy and I were working the marker bouys, hoping for an early season kingie. This guy hit the lure on the drop and my line zipped off like a rocket. I thought 'Woohoo, here we go!' as his first run was a ripper but I quickly subdued him with the 12lb braid I was using. Released to frolic in the Bay again.

Name / Username of Angler: Dave/sbd
Fish Type: Yellowtail Kingfish
Length: 69cm/2920g
Date/Time of Capture: 0915 02/09/06
Location of Capture: Bluefish Point, Sydney. Approx 20m of water.
Type of Lure/Bait used: 25cm live Slimy Mackerel, 10kg pink mono, 20kg Jinkai leader, 2 x 5/0 Mustad Big Red rigged as a sliding snell, fish taken on the trailing stinger.
Comments: Yay team, my first serious fish from the yak, or to put it another way, my second legal fish from a yak! Previous kingfish I've caught have been landbased, sure is easier when you're not pulling them towards the rocks. It pulled me around, but didn't fight too dirty. I had 10 minutes of great fun nonetheless. A big thankyou to Peril & simond for their photographic skills.

happy yakker


the fish


why do they call it a yellow tail?

Name / Username of Angler: Yakabe
Fish Type/Name: Snook
Length: 60cm
Date/Time of Capture: 5/9 at 6.15am
Location of Capture: Wallaroo Bay
Type of Lure/Bait used: Berkley Gulp jerk shad with a Squidgie 9grm #3/0 black metal jig head.
Comments: Went out for the first early fish in a while. Launched at 6.00am and had him in the boat by 6.15am. Used the Gulp Jerk Shad/Jig head for the first time. Got a lot of attention from the snook. Shows potential when the kingies come about. After this fish headed for the local marina as this morning was meant to be about bream. No luck!!

Name / Username of Angler: Dan/Hobie_Fisherman
Fish Type: Australian Salmon
Length: 48cm (fork)
Date/Time of Capture: 02/09/06
Location of Capture: Bluefish Point, Sydney.
Type of Lure/Bait used: Soft plastic stick bait, 4lb braid, 6lb vanish leader
Comments: Thanks to David (spotted a school of salmon on the surface) I was able to get my plastic in the middle of the school. It was hit on the first wind of my reel and an awesome 10min fight followed. It made some serious long dives (20 metres of water) and took me around in circles a few times. Once it was finally too tired to run I was able to scoop it into the yak as I had lost my net overboard that morning. Its amazing how you quickly forget about your sea sickness when you have a fish attached to your line. Great day - awesome fun on light gear.

Name / username: Dave/Mushi
Fish Type: "Shagga" the Southern Calamari
Date/Time of Capture: 04/09/06
Location of Capture: Point Cook, Victoria
Type of Lure/Bait used: 2.5 Egi Lee squid jig in yellow-green
Comments: thought I had one earlier, then up came a dirty big toadie on the jig :x ! This one ended up going 27cm, few more cms to beak. Took the jig during over some newly discovered shallow reef area in only about 1.5m of water. Sorry couldn't find a ruler ANYWHERE at the lady's sharehouse. The reference cold one was full during the pic, so it wasn't affecting my measuring :p (used the longest knife around then measured off that when a ruler was located)

Some excellent fish there, well done guys.
Congrats Naki, good to see you managed to get NZ off to a good start. Got a feeling we will be up against some tough opposition as the waters warm up 8)

Sorry for posting twice - left my PC logged on after posting and it somehow did it twice 30 minutes latter???? :oops:
Just a quick question.... As Davey G is the judge does this exclude his entries as he did have a catch worth points for September?? Should there be a non yakker who can judge so Dave can be included?
