Hot snapper spots

G'day fellow fishos

I am heading out for a fish tomorrow (sunday) and am
hoping to pick up a decent fish for a change!
Heading out from point peron and was wondering if anyone had any
ideas as to where a good spot to fish for snapper would be?
I'm not after cordinates or gps spots, just a rough idea.
Do you have to go out far to deeper water or can you pick them up out back of garden island?
Any info would be appreciated.

try!

The five fathom bank on the outer western edge is good, just run up and down parallel and find the reef/coral on the drop off. Anchor and berley up, they're around!

Deeper water is producing also, will be blowy in the morning so you try a 5 fathom morning fish and head out deeper later if you prefered. The deeper water in the 80-90m mark straight out from Garden has been producing, plenty of by catch also. Rotto near Duffields ridge have been producing some fish also, plenty of ground around there!

All the best!

We will give it a go, seems finding a good lump or reef and burleying
is the go.

We fished in 85metres just south west of Rotto on Tuesday and pulled up double headers every drift.

Definately burley in the shallows, picked up quite a few in the 20m mark behind 3mile reef out of oceanreef, we just sounded around found some decent ground and anchored.  Lots of smaller ones, but the bigger ones are around.

Good luck

Hi Ya,

Did you see the report in the Sunday Times last weekend.  apparently there were people down Canal rocks way 'whinging' because they couldn't get the baits intended for mullas past the pinkies!!!!!

Wouldn't mind that problem.

Cheers.

One of the better pinks I caught a few days ago on driftbait. The fish was very silver in colour, plenty of schooling sand snapper atm.....this fish was a keeper but many released!

Schooling pinkies over sand?  How did you stumble across them

we saw loads of bait balls on the bottom up to 10m off the bottom being hit by fish but got nothing last sunday.

Thanks guys, i've got a few lumps that produce pinkys but inbetween the two spots was a school of snapper on sand. That pic is taken with a polariser and the fish was spiked.....he wouldnt darken up at all....very silver!
