Any luck FFB lately?

Looking to fish a little bit further out than what i have in recent months, just wondering if anyone has had any luck on Pinks/dhus/sambos on the five lately?
Looking at anchoring and burleying first thing in the morning then heading out wider as the wind drops. Moon phase not ideal but with things quiet at work and a good forecast its hard to go past.

Cheers

And both dhuies and snapper just on the inside of FFB but seem to go off the bite once it gets light.  Great baldies out in the 40’s, some of the biggest I have ever seen equal to those out at the islands, skinned occy working well

 We went on the western side of the 5 on Friday and got a wrasse on a jig and a 35cm pinky on a herring frame.

Fished off the back edge 20m

Fished off the back edge 20m west of Carnac, first bait out dropped what felt like your typical ffb 50-60cm dhu, landed 10 or so pan size snapper 42-51cm, took home a 53, and got smoked by a sambo around the anchor rope. Really unsettled ocean, suffered the worst sea sickness I've felt in years

 She was a bit messy out

 She was a bit messy out there. Nothing outstanding for me. Lost my box of jigheads overboard.  they managed to hop over the side of boat!  Then some tool in a cat who absolutely stank of pinger decide to fish right next to me. 

Took home a thumper cuttly but would have preferred a snapper!
