  1. south queensland Solo Bay Fish 2/11/2017

    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 <><
  4. 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.

  7. 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 .

    I was thinking the same Old Scaley. In my eyes its come up treat I purchased the boat through Northside Marine at Boondal. Highly recommended. SURTEES have been great also where i had to sort a few small things during the build and they contacted me direct .

  10. Question On Navionics

    I looked into a platinum card for my hds9 set ups on the Surtees and I could not justify the extra $$$ for less region.You do get more bottom contour detail on your map. Unless your fishing commercially i would save your money and put it towards something else.
