FADS

I was just wondering when the fads will be out, or are they already out there?

when do they start to heat up?
What sort of fish can you get?

I havent been out to them before and would be keen to give it a shot.

I would bother untill next year fishing the fads, theres alway lil southern blue tuna around the 2kg mark out there! but the dollies will show up in numbers next year. we did really well on dollies around april this year, later in the season the bigger the fish.
head out to the contours 500-1000m mark and u might find some YFT, watch the currents though! most important!
i heard reports of aussie day "07" a big warm current came through the 1000m mark and a billie was tagged along with a 30-40kg fin..  



cheers

If you go to all the FADS you'll often find them early in the season. Small ones normally but fun on bream gear and fly!
