    Yeah mate I would highly recommend ocean blue charters. There are definitely cheaper operations but these guys use great skippers and don’t hesitate to burn fuel to hunt for the fish. They only fish three per boat while other mobs I saw there were chock a block and while they would only boat a couple fish we would get double digits in every boat every day from memory it’s was only around 2000$ for four full days fishing and all accomodation and transfers from Singapore pretty cheap. The trips not on the website any more so maybe ring them and see if they still do it. If not get in contact with the owner of this shop through face book. I forget his name sorry he was one of the guides and told me I could go direct through him next time which would also save you money

  9. north queensland Wanderers 1770 - September

    That will be the perfect combo for stopping big reds.

    I'm pretty sure that it's a non operational drill rig that came to darwin to have work done I'd say if it's getting moved it will be for a drill job which will most likely be a long long away. I could be wrong though

    Awesome part of the world up here. Looks like your making the most of it well done. I've fished that stena Clyde before it's absolutely loaded with fish. Spanish, cobia queenies and goldens to, plus a few suprises. Drop a few micro jigs down next time and you can literally catch as many queenies and Trevor's as u could be bothered catching. We found that a higher speed retrieve up through water columnwould result in Spanish over some of the less desirable species
  13. Hey mate, in my opinion I would opt for traditional overhead over a bait caster for 1770. The small handles can be a a pain especially if you were trying to stop big reds. This is only my opinion but I have a pretty heavy duty pluton combo and personally find it a royal pain for fighting reef brutes when your fishing straight up and down above the fish.Or if you head wider to some deeper grounds. Since my torsa now lives on the seabed around Sykes reef my reel of choice up there is a talica. If you can get your hands on a good condition used one you won't be disappointed. Other wise a good quality larger spin reel is my go to for stopping trout on plastics if that's your thing

    That's awesome, when done right you can't beat a good 1770 trip for value for money, people spend that much for a charter trip of the seaway that dosnt even compare
