Wow !!!! Thanks so much guys for the comments it means so much to me i really appreciate it.

It was a field of 41 kayakers set off for the round 6 southern bream series . We set off as a group of about 20 kayaks heading to the main part of the river. My 1st stop was just around the corner & i was hoping most of them kept going. Sure enough i slowed down to mark a few of the boats that i was going to target. As i prefished the system 6 weeks ago with the exact tides.
My arsenal was the Crabby again 1st cast resulted a 38cm fish. Shortly after another fish 27 cm was in the well . For the next 5 mins i worked 3 boathulls for no hits . I was fishing faster than usual just to get my bag but soon after the 3rd fish 28cm was in the well . All that in 15mins and my mind was at ease . From here it was all about upgrades. I moved on across the bay And saw a couple kayaks i worked the deeper water with a SL remix by bait breath & within the first cast the rod loaded and feels like a much better fish 29 cm and the 27 was swapped to fight another day. As the tide was in full swing i was fishing faster water hopefully the bigger fish were there for a play. I ended up with a few more fish but weren't upgrades. I moved on to the next bay still fishing very fast covering plenty of ground . I could see plenty of boats moving around & thinking in my mind looks like it is a tough day. I was fishing the bay when a kayaker spoke out how you going ? I replied ok he said its pretty tough mmmmmm i though yeah it is didn't say much but certainly gave me some confidence. It was 9 am and the elements was warming up as the sun was shining making things a little slower.I moved into the shady shorelines where there were pontoons and jetties. I went back to the Crabby as i flicked it out against pontoons it was 4.5 metres deep slowly working the Crabby with long pause till they decide to pick it up then whack i was on . Another 29cm replaced my 28cm bream. I worked the remainder of pontoons but managed another that was 28cm .
I quickly pressed on as time was racing by and the tide was getting pretty low . I fished a couple more boathulls for one good fish that i hooked up and saw which it was well over the 40cm mark,but unfortunately it straighten my light gauge hook :grr: that hurt which one more kicker fish would of been ideal.I tried not to worry about too much and retied another jig head. I came towards a channel marker and flicked the Crabby against it and not long after the line swam away quickly as i quickly reeled in the loose line this fish could of one the battle as i didn't realize all the rock and oysters barnacles everywhere . I eventually landed it was very thick and solid it measured 35cm you beauty another up grade and i was feeling very comfortable . I.was swapped the fish it was just one more upgrade i needed as things were slowing down .For a while i moved further down stream bumping into a few more kayaks and have nothing in the well yet. It was close to 11am and the sun was high in the sky making fishing a lot more harder and the bream more skittish. I changed outfits fishing with 3lb tho i had the watermelon SL REMIX . I flicked at a few more boathulls but it certainly shut down i didn't get a touch for a good while. I made a turn around back to the weigh in as i had a couple more hours to play trying very hard to get another bream . It finally paid off after a whole heap of casts i get another good fish 30cm which was another upgrade. I was pretty chuffed with the results and certainly my prefish from 6 weeks ago had paid off . I had qualified as well for the lake macquarie .so I'll be up there now prefishing it .

Once again thanks to everybody for the kind comments this really gives me some real confidence to continue to do well i hope.

Great report, Tez - terrific info there for any one chasing bream! Thanks for that

YAY! Winners are grinners! Nice pay check too!! Amazing to see how many yakkers (some very good fishos) as well as boaters who came in empty handed!! Same happened up here at the Gamagatsu this weekend! Even locals came in empty handed! Tho one hooked up on one of the kingies in the Breck Channel ...... on 6lb leader! LOL Didn't last long! :?:

Cheerio& well done again! :lek:
