Cape Naturaliste FADs

 Hey guys, 


Just wondering if anyone could shed some light on the FADs off of Cape Naturaliste. We do a fair bit of fishing in the area and I've being trying to read up on them a little with the intention of heading out there. I can't seem to find much information about them apart from a few news articles and the coordinates. Has anybody fished them or know people that go out to them? When are they out? 

apologies in advance for my lack of knowledge on FADs not somewhere I've fished in the past.

hey mate think the fads go out novemberish till May best bet is ask someone at recfishwest I think it’s their program, apart from that the one on the shelf is the best bet for dollies but they can turn up on the closer ones depending on water temp etc, tunas can also be caught at any of them

cheers paul
