morten bay bugseverytime the prawn trawlers used to tie up in the basin, we would head over there in the work ute, and buy the prawns straight from themthey always had mornten bay bugs as well...so yeah they are caught around here for sure.had either a choice of good prawns, r seconds, with missing tails or heads etc etc which were half the price.fine by me.... it was all bait.prawnies didnt mind seeling off the boat back then, as it was beer money for themdoesnt happene these days thoughoh and im with kirk.... oysters look like a lugeyyou got a stronger stumoch than my sandy...i WOULD hurl it back up before i even got the taste of it..

Them were the days, when you could fish there too, always caught pannies there, almost every time..
them snapper are STILL there...we cant fish them at work, and its illegal to take a boat into the basin now...but we SEE the snapper,mullaway,and small and BIG kingfish.we sometimes do and under wharf inspection...me and a workmate stodd in the dark, 6ft from the water, and watched 40 or so snapper ALL 20-30lb swim lazily under our feet.no kiddingkingfish were caught at the pump house... by a couple of contrractors... using of all things, an EARPLUG on a hook.now these kings are not wild by any means.ive seen squid, not more than 8ft away from a dozen kingfish, and they dont get eatenTHROW A HANDFULL OF ROCKS IN THE WATER, and the kings go mentalsounds like pellets hitting the water... thats what they get fed on the fish farmsim sure there will be more than one person on this forum that will have also seen the kings and snapper swiming around.

Just got a bucketful of those pellets yesterday. One of the blokes unloading a cleanseas boat started havin a chat to me and during our converstation asked if I wanted some of the "best burley" goin. Just pellets that had been dropped on the boat and then cleaned up into a 10 kg bucket. No worries. Ill have to see how good they are now. Only prob is if they are that good then how do I acquire some more ;):laugh:
