Absolute cracker Josh, well done! Any idea on length, looks pretty darn long?!? 

@kmcrosby78 Not sure on length ,  Would had been in the high 80cm  bracket It was quite long but didn't have much weight,  It ended up weighing in @ 6.8kg.

The angle the pic was taken on make the fish look taller than it I should I reckon.

You just got to take your opportunities when you can mate... that's my 4th trip in 2 weeks... around 30hrs fishing time for one solid fish.  3 trips for zilch. Glad my wife is patient. 

That's the story no-one hears. I'm so glad your persistence payed off. Good on you mate. Worth it for such a nice fish.

Hey @Cobiaaddict,

I'm normally an early bird fisho but have always wondered when i see people heading out 3pm/4pm if the fishing is better in the afternoon compared to an early morning start.

Cleaning the boat out in the dark doesn't really appeal to me. Should i be changing it up and trying out arvo sessions for snapper in the Bay?

Time on the water is your biggest asset mate.  Feel free to PM me and I'll answer best I can.

Can’t agree with u more. Still getting used to Handling a boat in all conditions. I find the thought of travelling in the dark over open water slightly unnerving if not unnatural? Port of brisbane or lit waterways I’m ok at night but haven’t ventured into the bay after dark.

Travelling at night is always sketchy I reckon mate,  So many times I have come across 5,6 &7m  boats travelling with no navigational lighting on its not funny,

Problem solved @GregOug,  Picture re-attached for all to see again,

It's all clear now....I've definitely figured it out, you are somewhere in Moreton Bay where big snapper hold. Thanks for sharing the photo of the stonker snapper

Your right  @Allnighter, it is only a little snapper, 

its not  location that was I was being harassed about, So ill  leave it at that.   It was nobody from this site ,  everybody here is super helpful and positive with every report I have ever put up which it most important.  AFO has a great bunch of young guys and veterans of the fishing scene which is great to see.  

@ellicat might know about the pics from my other reports in July & August last year, but I haven't touched them and the pics are there when I go back to those reports   

 

Cheers Josh <'><

On a moonlight night it is OK. Its really beautiful out there especially if the wind is down.
