Furuno 628 sounder pic and fish result

 Wednesday myself and a mate headed up to a spot near Leeman. Weather was better than expected so we had a quick fish in shallow after launching at 4pm, managed one 65cm dhu. Didn't think to take a photo.

Next day we headed out at daybreak and went about 8 nm offshore in my little 4.2 savage. We did a drift near some craypots and landed a couple of snapper. This is only the second time we have caught snapper in this area. We then went out to about 35 mts where I found little shows like the one below on my new furuno 628.

 

These produced baldy and dhus and our 2 person bag for the day was 1 dhu around 55cm, 1x 48cm baldy and 2 x 60cm snapper.

 

 

The following day we only had a couple hours to fish so went straight out to the 30s but the fish were quiet and we only managed a 60cm baldy and a 4ocm blackarse.

 

I really do like the furuno 628, the lowrance carbon 7/totalscan combo was only seeing fish if they were really thick

 Beach was good, let tyres down a little and 4H was plenty good enough.

Is a great little spot, we used to fish in kayaks, I have only fished a few times in boat, first time out wider.

 The troubled with the inshore fishing is you struggle to find anything other than dhuies
