5 Fathom Mixed Bag

Went out with a few of the boys Thursday morning for a fish off 5 Fathom, was a struggle to find any sized snapper amongst the little ones but good to see theres are some healthy sized schools out there!
We only came across one dhu just under unfortunately so he went straight back down , had a few welcome bycatches of KGs though.

Trolled our way back in to check the cray pots and found some tuna busting up..completely spooled me on my 3k reel on the first hookup, thankfully had a heavier combo rigged and ready to go straight away and landed some

All in all a decent mixed bag for the day

now to get back out and keep looking for a metro mackie!

The tuna were taking anything we trolled passed them, first two hooked up on cheap skirted lures then while we were sorting those two in the boat we trolled passed with a Halco Laser 2.5m diver and a School Bully shallow diver and had a double hook up again
