sun 4th out deep

Headed out today from rockingham at 7am to Hillary's Fad, some big swells running out deep, some i rekon hitting 4 and half m, pushed out there to find only one other boat there, which left not long after, thought this isnt a good sign.

The current was pushing 100miles an hour and made fishing hard, tried cubing for the dollies but nothing, couldnt stay in the area long enough, so decided to troll around a bit, craig had a small very half hearted hit that didnt hook up and we saw 3 dollies jump near the fad, all good fish around 7 to 8kg, then decided to troll a few lures for a while towards PGFC which is no longer there either, no tuna at all even though we trolled alot of bait schools.

Headed then to the 90's for an hour bottom bashing, pretty quiet, only a few small bites, then got the nice pinky and it was time to head in.

 Andy you will pleased to know i hit my herring spot and got heaviest herring again todayTongue out 3 comps in a row now.

All in all around 80nm for bugga all but was nice being out on the water and had a huge pod of dolphins follow us for a while which was very pleasant, some huge ones too
