Straight Hooking

Straight Hooking

Plenty of nice fish moving around the 30 to 35 metre mark. This was one of my best Baldies I have shot and seen south of Mandurah.

Very nice Baldie and crays too.  The yella fish would be a blue groper which is very nice on the tooth.

Cheers Pete

Correct Pete....I personally

Correct Pete....I personally leave the big ones alone but dont mind taken a 55 to 60cm one every now and then.

Paul would get about 20 minutes at the bottom with the total dive time about 29 minutes, always try and do a safety dtop at 6 metres for 21/2 minutes if air permits. My dive buddies computer is a little bit more conservitive then mind and sometimes he goes into deco. And we need about 11/2 hours between dives

OK kane, some really nice ground out there, a lot of people don't like to dive that far out. Will bo searching for more ground along that depth so we can limit the dive pressure to a couple of times a year

More of a yellow groper than a blue lol. Colour change when larger? Depends on ground they inhabit? Well done regardless. I may have to do the drive south to mandurah to scope this out.

Yellow and green ones are females, blues are the dominant Alpha males and usually have a harem of sheilas close by, when he drops of the perch or gets knocked off the Alpha female grows big and blue and changes sex, Weird buggas .

Target!

Tue, 2009-02-17 12:01

I'll be putting one on the shopping list when down Hamo in 2 weeks.  Haven't targetted one for over 10 years now.

Saw a very good sized Blue last week diving in 45m out from 2 roxs with Ryan.  Yeah, 10 minutes on the bottom and into deco at 6m for 13 minutes...which is a long time doing nothing and just had enough air in the tank (had a deco bot at 5m though).  Did a 2nd 45m after about 3 hours.

Have to find some good 25-35m stuff to increase the bottom time.

Cheers Pete

Good bag mate i shot a 7kg

Tue, 2009-02-17 18:53

Good bag mate i shot a 7kg baldy off busso a while back. Around the 27m mark have seen some monsters that make mine look like a minnow but they dont get that big from being dumb ay as soon as you look at them they are gone.
