How did you go yesterday

 Headed out from two rocks to the bank. Was hard work early and had to fish alot of marks with not much happening. Shifted again a bit further north and the sounder lit up. Multiple dhuies pinkies baldies rat sambos and the biggest black bum I have seen. Took our bag of 2 dhuies 1 pinkie and 1 baldie and left them bitting. Great day out and back in at 28 knots on flat seas with a lovely bag. Nice slab of fresh dhuie for dinner last night. So how did everyone else go as the ramp was busy as.

was a great day, unfortunately wife got seasick and insisted we head back...luckily bagged a nice southern Bluefin on the way back (was gonna troll, but lure must have landed on his head ...didn't have time to start the engine before he took off).. and 2 big crays weighing about 1.6kg each....sashimi and cray for dinner.....worth the nagging! ;)
was really hoping to have a crack for some dhufish tho!

getting the bottom line final answer from a bunch of blokes that use false names and put smiley faces at the end of paragraphs is not the best place in the world to get the information you seek.

 Mrs got a nice red snapper

Sun, 2018-02-04 16:07

 Mrs got a nice red snapper and a pinkie that went 66cm. Myself a big black arse and a nice whiskery (on soft plastic). Released couple of pinkies, sambos, sweep and a matched set of dhuies....3 that each went 48cm. Just a nice day out. Down side was a new rod that the gimbel came unglued on, made things a bit awkward at times.

 Interesting screen shot

Mon, 2018-02-05 21:40

 Interesting screen shot Steve. I haven't really played much with bottom lock yet. Those images look very similar to to the Raymarine RV transducers. Looks like the GT51 has a pretty wide cone..

The Garmin gear looks very good... although there is a problem with your screen, the pixals are broken top centre :)

 Some great results there. Although it doest always come together i guess we should be grateful that we can still catch such great quality fish so close to a capital city.  Happy dayz.
