Hi folks,

Gave the Pine a try for 4.1kg of small to medium on Thursday over 4 hours. Ache all over after not casting since last season though.

What's your thoughts on using an electric outboard on anchor mode among a group of boats? There was one boat there doing that and getting butthurt when anyone drifted close to him.

Cheers.

Regarding using spot lock or anchor prawning,i'm personally of the opinion that it's a hassle for everyone on the drift especial if the tide has started to run and the more boats the more disruptive it gets over that hole,I had a bloke it could be him last season run strait to where I'd found a school and went on to spot lock,there was only the two of us and the tide was running pretty hard, one throw and you were off them so he was handy in that situation I kept running back to him and casting in close proximity we never touched, but I was getting the look as well.Had he been there first I would have conceded him a bit more space.
Did you get your prawns Thursday above or below the bridges?

    Hi Alfie,
    Prawning is different to fishing, boats get very close but not on top of each other and everyone is entitled to get their share makes for some good fun and you get to meet new people just my 2 cents worth, i don't have fancy spot lock but used my electric to put me back on the prawns, I have prawned around a old chap down caboolture he always anchored up he was fine with everyone around him and had some great chats in the past...but you don't have to throw on top of them that would be worthy of a comment or look >:(.

    Cheers Johnno

    Even the cliffs would be worth a look, those cliffs are south from the Canaipa Yacht Club, don't go to close to the rocks otherwise you'll have repairs to do.

    There are still smalls and mediums in the pine. and being the new moon phase, there is a school of prawns moving down river. They were at Colmslie a day before.

    There's still a few prawns kicking around in the pine. According to a friend. I had 2 people from the northside both wanting new nets and their old ones repaired. So we rendezvoused at Nudgee . A prawning session with me old mate "Frank the Fishing machine" yielded 17 litres and a healthy Summer whiting (all in the creek). Then The net repairs and home.  They will probably get a hiding today, tomorrow may be too late. We never bothered to scout out front of Nudgee. It was lumpier than forecast.

    Well, He didn't complain. They were scattered, and it took a lot of throwing. He had quite a lather of sweat. But I'm sure he was glad to be out again.

    They are bony bream MQ. The larger models are terrific crab bait and the smaller ones make great live bait for flathead. They stay alive on the hook a lot longer than the standard herring.
