Soldiers Point Marina
After several days of rain, Monday 2nd September dawned bright and clear - perfect for taking a boat from Soldiers Point Marina onto Port Stephens Bay.
10 intrepid members boarded the boat and enjoyed a great day on the water - fishing, drinking, chatting. Could not be better!!

Out on the water - fish look out
A sparkling winter day for a spot of fishing at The Anchorage marina in Corlette on 24th July. Several species were around but the target for the day was black fish - unfortunately the wind meant that the black fish did not show!!
Black fish require special techniques if they are to be caught and resident expert John Townsend provided a tutorial on rigging lines for black fish prior to the day.
An idyllic start to the day
