I'm keen to get out this Saturday for a yakfish and a crack at the Sept competition. With Sunday being Fathers Day I guess that's out for most of us (although I'm sure that most of us Dads would have a days yak fishing at the top of our wish list!)

Anyone keen to meet up? Any of those trevally left over your way Gatesy? Any other suggestions? Weather (at this stage) looks to be fine and 22-23 degrees so ideal conditions. Low tide around 9am.

Thoughts?

Dave,

Definitely up for a trip out on either day over the weekend. Would prefer something out on the open water rather than in the harbour

I'm in. Prefer a dawn start and off the water by noon at the latest. Happy to try inshore. Need to keep an eye on the wind and swell though. Seabreeze is currently forecasting 15 to 20kt wind with the swell from the East. We could always try the Shelly Beach option with a fallback to Little Manly

Next time AEEGF uses the above line, try this in reply and see if it works..

" But one day with you is like a week with any other girl for me my sweet" :wink:

I think that would be worth a try, but keep the reflexes alert in case you have to duck quickly

Pete LeBlang has found kingies. He's not saying where but I suspect inshore. Looks like Bluefish could be a go if the conditions are right.

I'm happy to pick up some fresh bait from Narrabeen B&T first thing Sat morning. Let me know if you want some.

Might be up for it but depends on 1) where we are going as I can't go outside the heads :( and 2) the hangover from a major drinking session on Friday night :twisted: . I'll keep an eye on this thread and let you all know later in the week :D .

brilliant gatesy....the work of a genious (or at least a desperate fisho!).

just goes to show that your GF values her phone charger more than your company.... :shock: :? :wink:

looking forward to it...

I'm easy on the launch but if theres some that want to stay inshore then perhaps a little manly launch is the go? that way the ones who want to go offshore can do so. of course its best to sum up the conditions on the day so a meeting at the lookout @ 6am could be the best option?

Like occy, I prefer the Little Manly option for this one. I suggest that we have the two launch spots and each can choose. Will be helpful if you post your preferred launch spot here so we know to wait for you.

My plan is to launch at Little Manly and my aim is to troll around to Bluefish and catch up with the other party, provided the fish don't get in the way. It is about a 5km paddle each way. Forecast is looking better each time I look.

as mentioned i'm easy with the launch location, and I'm the same at Michael - OK with the outside conditions when paddling but once I stop and start rigging up or bobbing around I can start getting a bit crook in choppy seas. If conditions are sloppy a launch within the Harbour might be best, but if the seas are flat outside, would be happy with that as well.

Happy to meet wherever. Whats' the parking like at FAiry Bower and also at Little Manly?

Well if the Big Red Roo is still smiling (and they don't call me out), then it looks like a goer for me on Saturday. I am actually leaving for Greece on Sunday and because I promised Suzie I would have everything packed and ready to go by tomorrow, then I can come out on Sat. What we guys have to put up with...geez... :shock: :wink:
P.S Guess what I will pack in my suitcase...? No, unfortunately the Prowler cannot be folded..SP's and 2 rods. Wonder if the Greek fish will take plastics????
Cheers

I'm continuing with the spadework with the AMEW* but hopeful of a launch on Saturday - I'm keen on the Little Manly option, but would consider Fairy Bower if conditions are OK. I'll post a definite tomorrow. Hope to see y'all.

According to the Oracle Fishing Predictor, major feeding times are 0652 to 0922. Winds will be N/NW at 10/20 knots.
Sunny and 14-22 degrees.
Bring it on.... :twisted:
Cheers

What are the meeting times? I'm thinking of 5:45 for a 6:00 launch. I'll be at Little Manly.

Steve, I'll have some fresh pillies for you. Any other requests?

BTW seabreeze is showing one metre seas, ENE swell, NW wind at 10-15kt. Should be ok for inshore work.
