Long Weekend Two Rocks

Went North of Two Rocks last long weekend and got onto a couple in close. 

Started in 18m and ended up with about 6 dhus ranging from 450-550mm. Big Johns white spire point leadhead jigs doing the damage. One of the dhus spewed up a seahorse on the deck which is a first for me. All went back well in the shallows but caouldnt manage anything bigger.

Moved out a bit further and managed a couple of nice baldys one of which went 670mm. Then out to 29m where we found some larger dhus.

A nice change getting some fillets in the freezer in the shallower stuff.

Nice lawn

and nice fish to go with it. Can I ask a couple of quick questions 

 

1. Are they vexed dhu drop jigs?

2. Are they harbour jig assists?

 

main reason I ask is I am stoked up on both for an up and coming Exmouth trip

 

cheers

Cheers Fellas.

Scano, I know for sure the blue jig was a dhu drop and my mate was using pre-made assists but not sure if they were harbor. Ill find out.
