Welcome to fishwrecked Gibbsy. Never fished out of Gracetown myself so can't help ya much. :( Hopefully someone else on here may have, but if not, would love to hear how you go as I've never really heard much on what the deepsea fishing is like out of there.

this is going back 20 years or so when i use to live in yals.but myself and a few friends did a heap of surfing there and also some snorkling in the bay itself .saw some thumper blue groper .
last time i fished down that way i pulled a size dhuie just outside the bay itself [only in a 11ft tinnie] so we wernt real keen on going to far out.ide say with a bit of a look around i dont think it would be to hard to find some good lumps to fish especialy sincr theres 2 good size boat doing the looking.if its quiet ide burly hard and you probably get a snapper or 2 coming to the trail.if not i reckon the sambos will find the burly .good luck
always in it just the depth that varies

The fishing in grace town was very quiet on saturday between two boats we caught one black arse. It was the first time i had fished there and was suprised at how flat the ground was. By talking to some locals it was a very slow day for everyone.
