I was looking at Seabreeze today thinking that it's not looking bad at all. I wouldn't mind a crack at shelly beach if the forecast holds. Want to get me a salmon or a king or ...

I'm good for Sunday. Reece starts cricket on Saturday.

Also open to other suggestions, so long as they're polite :)

Seabreeze does look OK. I might be able to get out this weekend. We'll see how things go. Just been out and bought a bilge pump, skin fittings and hose and should be rigging them up tomorrow. No more flooding of the SOT with this set up so should be able to go out to sea again :twisted:

good luck with the trout as well Davey G. From memory there seem to be a few ponds on the way to the snow just out side jindy that have thousands of trout in them - think the best bait would be chook pellets and don't get caught :twisted:
yes mate the trout farm on the way up to perisher is a fairly good chance of catching one. however they have fishing line/nets strung over the top of the ponds to prevent guys turning up after dark and throwing lures in (it actually used to happen). some of the trout in those ponds are absolute monsters - 3 foot long and around 20lb.

Hope the first paddle of the new yak goes to plan and you dont get the ceremonial dunking!

Kraley/ Dave / Peril

I will be joining the days fishing. :eek: The weather for Sat & Sunday seems to be excellent. :D
Shelly beach is close to Toowoom Bay/ Killarney Vale?
Where are we meeting? What street? What time?
What fish are we going to target?

Regards
GF, I think there are many Shelly Beaches (imagine that, a beach with shells!). This one is right next to Manly on Sydney's Northern Beaches. End of Fairy Bower Rd.

Still waiting for Kraley to make a call on what he's looking to do. However, conditions are looking good.

Done. The swell direction is forecast to be from the south so I'm very confident of a launch from Shelly Beach. Agree about keeping an eye on the conditions though.

I'll be jigging for slimies using a slug, to put a livie back down for kingies. The slug can also double for salmon if they surface. And I'll have a range of plastics (gulps) to send down for trevors or whatever else takes a fancy to them, and some other plastics to throw at salmon if they reject the slugs.

Guys, by the simple expedient of promising an improbable amount of renovating on Saturday, I have a ticket of leave for Sunday morning, so I'll see you at dawn. Here's hoping the slimies are still at home.

Nick (flump), please don't drop out. I'm scared to be alone with all those hobies. Bastards will probably steal my paddle then pedal off.
