    Grew up down that way. Grandparents are all buried at either Albion Park or Bulli. Gods country down that way. Been over 25 years since I lived there. Always wondered why not many people fished from boat especially offshore. There was a great ramp at Bellambi point that was never full even on perfect days.

    Yep yep , another for Keira High lol , and yes great fishing off Conno Break Wall as a kid and off Conno beach later on in life with my first Boat which was a 14ft Brooker with a Chrysler Outboard lol.. Bream, Snapper , tailor , Jew and Trag by the bountifull .
    Only need a wee bit of mince to start off with to catch your yakkas for bait n then fillet and use fer bait. Whole side off yakka or livie for jew and if you had VERY Fresh prawns for the Trag again all from Conno Beach just back from the breakers...

    Remember as a nipper we used to go for a swim along that Brighton Beach after a fishing session in the Boat Harbour . Standing in the waters edge along Brighton beach and every now and again i would jump ta high heaven from getting bitten by a crab.
    An old fella was pi$$in himself laughing from me jumping around and came over n said "You like eating Crab ??" , MY Mom does"" i answers him .
    he then proceeded to go get himself a knife and run it through the sand and as soon as the blade came to a stop he would dig his hand in the sand adjacent to the blade and swoop up a crab ..
    "Thats how ya do it he sez and off he goes giggling to himself.
    That arvo i went home with near a bucket full of sand crabs which put a smile on my Moms face from ear to ear lol..

    As a teenager I use to get my mum to drop me & the mates off at the Port Kembla Wharf for the day.
    We'd take our rods and spear guns and sneak under the main wharf. There were walkways that ran full length under the wharf.
    We'd spear kingies, black fish etc from the walkway. Use to have a ball.
    Couldn't ever see that happening these days.
