Containers

All these coordinates are good to know but with all the boats that go out there does anyone ever catch any decent fish...if so what species?
Is it worth a trip out there?

Sambos

Fri, 2007-01-19 08:39

The main fish out there at the moment are sambos, if you can get a bait past them your in with a shot for snapper, mulla's, grey banded cod and skippy.
Also plent of sharks at the moment. With the amount of jigs we lost last trip to sharks its almost worth taking out the heavy gear and and sending down some big baits and giving them a go.
