    Default living the dream

    Hi AAs

    I'm really enjoying my weekends down at Nelligen (Batemans Bay) - Camping on my very own Island .
    Each day spent down there is adding to the picture ..... be it .... the river & where to find fish or heading offshore & locating a consistent source of live slimies & yaccas for when those pelagics turn up in Summer / Autumn . .... btw the burley bucket worked a treat
    This last trip I managed a cricket score on smallish estuary perch ...... but the best part was that they were all caught on surface ( once I found an offering they liked) - You wouldn't imagine how hard it was to entice fish that were focused on moths .
    The offshore stuff was very quiet .... with only a few mowies & small snaps landed - Water temps were as low as 17.1 deg ans you know it's quiet when you can put a fresh slimie fillet down & bring it back in 30mins later in pristine condition but hey I've scoped out a couple of reefs for later .... and managed a feed
    But what a spot .... be fishing the reefs in the morning & EPs in the afternoon - with camping smack n the middle

    Thanks Paul
    I'm not a selfie type ..... but even I'm impressed enough with that I've screwed the prom queen look It's an absolute gem of a location - as you can see & I'm pretty well left alone there aside from the odd (very odd) kayaker who stops there for lunch .
    I'm going to make a big effort to secure this spot for my week off at Christmas ..... by then the offshore scene should be getting into gear along with the estuary .


    I'd love to put up some of he footage of the EP surface activity .... i'm sure it would get every bass fishoe going
