sambo jigging

Hey guys , so i want to get into sambo jigging as iv been learking this forum for a while and doing my research. Iv gone out and got my self a suitable outfit and a few knife jigs to get me started, and a few other little bits a peaces. iv done alot of soft plastic fishing so i just wonna change it up a little bit and also the fact that a mate bought a new boat. Now that im pretty much prepared were struggling to find some good spots along/ near rotto?. i know a few guys here arnt gonnna want to give up there spots so we were thinking of going to horseshoe reef and try for a jig there while drifting over or near the reef , and also swirl reef but if that doesnt work out then maybe just look around for some lumps west of rotto? if anyone can tell us what to look for on the sounder or how much depth of water or even if someone would even be kind enough to give us some gps co ords then it would be much appreciated.


cheers guys ;)

Check out , lots of coordinates on there for the wrecks/barges out off rotto. That'll be your easiest way to find some sambos to jig up.

West to Southwest of Rotto in the 95-115m approx is a scattering of sambo wrecks. They are on the current navy charts also, November - Jan the best time.

about 10-15 km off the west

about 10-15 km off the west end. Really cant miss the boats during the season. There are a number of much less known wrecks in the area that we sounded over winter that may provide a few options if the traffic is a  bit much.
