Broke the Curse

My last 5 trips out have been terrible and even my whiting spot has been shite.

Tried a different tact today and pushed out of Ocean Reef. Slow bite but managed a nice baldy and dropped a suspected much heavier model. Plus an unfortunate dhu that came up with a cuttlefish attached to its brain.

Bite time was a small window before lunch and it shut down hard after 12. I then covered a heap of ground and marked up some spots out to the 36m mark. The weather was so mint I was marking ground at 32knots as seen below so hopefully they'll yield next trip.

 Well done. Them cuttlefish will attack anything.  Certainly a nice spike on the sounder . Good luck with future trips

Doing a few scratchie

Mon, 2022-05-23 10:30

Doing a few scratchie calculations I’ve calculated that my P66 running at 200khz with an 11 degree angle covers a seabed diameter of 6.4m at 33.2m. My theory is that by running the gain high I might pick up some bait on the edge of a lump that I’d completely miss if I were running it lower gain travelling that fast. If I go back to check it out I run at lower gain.

 Good stuff Frosty. We got

 Good stuff Frosty. We got onto some nice SBT in the 20's out from Hillarys on Saturday. Nice size around 3kg and they were everywhere. We took 6 (shared around friends and family) and let another 6 go in an hour and left them on the bite. Awesome weather too!
