Lance and I set off from brisbane to stay the night in town at Agnes waters the next morning we set off early heading north to the bunker group. It started off slow with most spots without fish but the fish that did hit the deck were quality. Big red throat and tuskies pulled hard and Lance hooked a big trout it went 65cm. We kept working hard and put more trout, rte, tusky and cod in the box. On a spot we had 2 Cobia swim up to the Boat and Lance dropped a bait in front of it taking the bait the cobes took off and after 5 minutes got sharked. Before sunset it was time to look for red emperor. On a red spot I hooked a big tusky only to get sharked with just the head to show no reds turned up either. Anchoring up behind the reef we got a good night's sleep then at it again the next day. The one thing with multiple days you get to know where they're biting and when. So the reds might chew early morning and they did I found a small red emperor going 62cm. We found no more reds in my go to spot so off to new ground here Lance hooked a good tomatoe cod as I hooked a big red. My fish fought hard head thumping as they do and peeling line at times and slowly I start to gain line. He fought all the way to the Boat and hit the deck at 78cm and about 12kg. A marlin swam past the boat and we through baits out with no luck. The fish went off the chew out deep so we moved in close finding a couple more trout. The fish went really quiet and with no wind it was hot and time for a swim. The fishing in the late arvo was red hot and the quality was there with Lance landing the best red throat going 55cm and it pulled hard. We bagged out at 5pm on the coral reef fin fish with 40 fish onboard we went to anchor as the wind had picked up. The next morning we set off early heading south to a mackerel spot but no luck there. The run home was perfect with less than 5 knots all morning and a good trip home on the road we rolled in just after dark.
