  1. I pretty much only pay attention to the PE number now and follow the rule of thumb or PE x 10lbs = breaking strain. I seem to find this the most reliable indicator of line strength. If they start mis printing the PE # i'm in trouble haha.
  2. Great report! ive done a few days with guides up there and it’s always on my list to take the boat up myself.....one day!
  3. Keen to hear whats going on out there.
  4. Drifting liveys or trolling them? what liveys were you using mate?
  5. Possibly Arnold’s fibreglass?
  6. I only have met one person that has one and he swore by it but I have to admit I’m skeptical!
  7. Looks so good! Big job but it'll be worth it in the end.
  8. What was the water like out there? I trolled the 36's off the pin then down the 80m line down to SE of the seaway for not a touch. Plenty of people out on the troll but channel 10 was pretty quiet. Saw a few birds working but seemed to be just dolphins getting there attention. Very little bait found for the kms travelled. The water was dark green and 23-24.7c.(60-80m) Keen to get out again after this southerly.
  9. Water temp was 25+ at the trench. Acres of tiny bait in shallow in the bay very little bait in 35m but we did find some round 40m. We didn’t give it a fair crack really due to the wind. We were hoping to make it over to Hutchies and our to 100m but didn’t. Thinking maybe tomorrow now but the weather is a little all over shop.
  10. Keen to hear how you get on. I had a bit of a troll round the trench yesterday (Thursday) but the wind got up early and looked like it was gonna blow out so we pulled the pin early. We did pick up a nice cobia on a hardbody we had swimming in the spread. Disappointed to call it early but was still great to get out as I haven't had much opportunity lately!
  11. Great report mate. Been hoping to spend some time out through the south passage, just waiting on some favourable conditions lining up with some time off. What time did you come back through the bar? Did you take the amity channel again?
  12. So if we kill everything we catch then that’s ok?
