Deep Jigging Exmouth Style

Here's a few pics from today that Adz hasn't chucked up.

Headed out until we found something

Drop, lift, on!

Nice greyband cod

Next drop was Ad'z turn

Go the Ruby's

Next drop for me, hit on the drop just off the bottom, good fish!

Not.

One more drop, just to nail a ruby.

Home early, not a bad day at all. Cheers Adz.

Looks like one of the XOS Zest jigs (maybe SW Lab - I get them mixed up).  Can't help on the rod though.

the rod is a Jigging Master

Thu, 2011-04-21 07:57

the rod is a Jigging Master Three Kings medium overhead and the jig is a R2S zero dropper picked because it had a lumo side. Awesome rod and worth every dollar.

There you go.

The 400g Zest jigs I've got have the same lumo side... look pretty much exactly the same.

the only grey coat problem we

Thu, 2011-04-21 08:02

the only grey coat problem we had was when one hit my jig just on the bottom and what I thought was going to be a 20kg ruby turned into a 6' shark. Otherwise we didn't lose a fish, but we also only had 5 single drops and were probably only there for a hour.

Sounder Pic

Thu, 2011-04-21 17:59

A question for those that know more than I with respect to interpreting sounder pics.  The pic above shows the depth as 250m in the bottom left corner.  Is this right?  Looking at the RHS screen I would say the bottom is more at 258m and everthing above that is fish?

definitely not fish, the gain

Thu, 2011-04-21 22:25

definitely not fish, the gain is down pretty low so the "holes" in the bottom might be a difference in bottom composition, but there was also a small drop off nearby that the sounder cone might have been just kissing the edge of. Not really sure, we need to spend a bit more time out there but it isn't fish.

Thu, 2011-04-21 22:52

 the bottom lock is showing fish, we mainly used the right hand side to look for the drop off and the bottom lock side to see the fish. The fish didn't always show on the R/H side but did on the left. Need to spend a bit more time mucking around, we were more interested in catching the fish than playing, plus the weather wasn't all that great.

Tks for the feedback Tim

Fri, 2011-04-22 09:01

One more question if I may.  So when you see vertical lines like you see in the pic in the bottom lock screen will that always be fish?
