 We have managed fish last two times we went out on the southern FAD's all on stickbaits. They are around just maybe not in huge numbers just yet.

 5 seems to be the one at the moment though I try and hit them all. Sometimes they are there, sometimes they aren't. Trick for me is never to rely on them for a whole day fishing. It's been rare for me to catch them for hours on end. Get a couple and move on to something else.

 There's fish on the northern fads, and a good size but they are skittish. I've twice had them taking cubes at back of boat whilst gently drift fishing but have been interrupted by dickheads trolling right over the top of the buoy. They've swiped at stickballs,chased livies but ignored deadbits and hit skirts

Simple

Just keep it simple, normally a couple of Ritcher Jelly Babe lures trolled around the area will nail them.

 As in the RFW ones out from Mindarie? Would be an easier run than the ones off Rotto. Will be interested in how you go.
