  1. south queensland Careless

    I feel for ya Dino. I am a type 1 diabetic and only 35yrs old and it takes me a while to heal up as well mate fingers and toes especially. I am all ways super careful handling lures, hooks and fish . Smallest of cuts or nicks really suck and can be a absolute night mare. Good luck in your recovery mate.

    NIce Fish Mate, There great fun in tight country. Should start seeing some really large fish pushback through the bay and offshore over the next few months,

  4. south queensland Who Is Heading Out 11th And 12th

    Thanks @ellicat Spent a lot of time fishing offshore when i was a teenager. Had my powerboat licence before i could drive and had plenty of opportunities to get out fishing It has been amost 10years since i last fished that area of Caloundra wide and i was completley shocked when i sounded up fish shows like never before. Normally its a anchor berley amd wait for them to arrive.

    New boat is awesome mate. Drove really well coming home in the dark and what a weapon averaging 42-46km per hour and 2.3km per ltr with 4 on board amd loaded up with fish. Yeah 1st time i have put int hose type of hours in long time. Since becoming a type 1 diabetic its a tough juggle keeping myself feeling right and . It Was hard going out there as we only had 3 fish on board by 6pm thursday night then all hell broke loose when we showed up at the spot i planned to anchor on for the night to chase some snapper on the early morning bite before heading home for a late breakfast.. Only reason we came in was the eskys was full and ice was just about all melted . The deckies where stoked .

    Fished till 10pm last night and got home about 2am this morning after leaving from bribie ramp at 7.30am . We ended up fishing about 8km south west of the barwon banks catching pearl pearch , parrott, pigfish ,cod, moses and a couple of squire. Been sleeping most of the day before washing the boat then having more sleep and then cleaning fish.
  8. Anyone heading out tomorrow or friday. Ill be launching from spinnaker sound hopefully around 7am ish. Not sure yet where im heading yet Thinking pearl peach @Caloundra wide Maybe palegics on the 9 or 12 mile areas Or have a play on some tuna/macs in bay . Anyone heading out.

    So coffee rock and gravel are my main places to start looking. Water depth is generally anything from 5m-25m . Some of these areas of reefy rubble are no bigger than say a wheelie bin or small car. Then from there its just a matter of sounding and exploring and putting huge amounts of time.

    I use tru-turns rigged as a 2 gang with a swivel between in 5/0 when fishing a WA pilchard and 6/0 or 7/0 when using whole diver whiting. Sinker sizes vary from a 000 to a 5 ball pending on depth,current and drift speed and then on occassions i run a single 7/0 or 9/0 gamakatsu octopus because the grassy's will only take a half cut WA pilchard or whiting. . I just keep changing tactics after 3-4 drifts until one takes a bait. I reckon they are harder than big snapper to target sucessfully in the bay.

    Evening all. Had some time off during the week and managed to get out for a fish on thursday chasing one of my favourite bay reef fish and that being the The Grass Sweetlip. About 10yrs ago i spent hundreds of hours exploring certain parts of the bay trying to crack them . Since getting the SURTEES i have been busting to have a crack . I left Spinnaker sound around 7am thursday morning only to be met with a solid SSW wind about 12-15kn . Not what i was hoping for but the boat handled it very well. Got out to my spot amd started sounding until i found a few shows in 20m water . Now i had not fished this area in at least 8 years so i was a little rusty on technique and feel on pinning a good sweety as they are such a finicky fish too hook and stop on light gear. Started off on 20lb O/head outfit and could not get a bite drifting a floating a pilly on 3ball .So i pulled out what i would call "light" gear being 15lb mono and motored up to start my 4th drift. It payed off instantly nailing a few solid fish each drift . 3 x Grassy sweet lip at 55cm 50cm and 47cm . Also managed a 42cm squire and 42cm and 37cm moses perch making the esky look nice to feed the fam and grandparents . Only took a shot of the fish in the esky. Cheers Josh <><
  12. New Rig

    I have been managing a feed of fish on most trips so far, nothing of any particular size or species that excites me . Still learning a lot about driving deep VEE hulls in less than favorable conditions which has been a lot of fun so far Few more weeks and the Cobia should have moved in-to the shallow waters in the northern bay and we can see some real action.

    Yeah mate that would had been me.
  14. New Rig

    Thanks mate. Definitely go take a look at any of the NZ built boats they wont disappoint. This one was built with 5mm bottom 4mm sides and 3mm top top decks .
