  1. Burleying in deep water

    How do you burley for reefies in deep water for best effect positioning your burley container out of the way in 40_60m of water? What tactics do you employ and how heavy is the container to make sure it goe s straight down and is away from your lines at the bottom? Would tieing the container to the anchor rope work with a 10m cord to ensure the pot is just under the boat work? Thanks Mil,
  2. Interesting Jon, thanks for the feedback maybe we'll be launching at Moruya then and turning right!
  3. After a successful fishing trip on the reds last week at Durras I was wondering what pellagics might I catch out at that 60-80m range whilst trolling some skirts and decent hard bodies and what time of year? I have caught small dolphin fish out there on the surface so I'm guessing other decent surface dwellers must be present? Would I be best turning right and heading south of batemans bay as opposed to heading north? Thanks in advance Milt
  4. Brilliant!!! Any suggestions south of Jervis bay? Keep the suggestions coming.
  5. Hi all, Could any of you suggest some great ocean front accommodation along the NSW south coast that has great surf /rock fishing options, within waking distance of the property? The time of the year that it fishes best, would also be appreciated. Thanks in advance, Milt
  6. I think i'll settle on 5.5m and will limit my offshore trips to 15km out on those glorious days maybe 20km in another boats company. I'd love to hit a few albacore and bottom bounce some deep reef out there. One thing i will do is practice tackling the bar with a professional a number of times and get to know my boats capabilities intimately before attempting my first crossing. i've driven a few boats in calm conditions and done allot of offshore fishing but never owned a boat. I think its about time and am looking forward to gaining as much experience as i can.
  7. Thanks for the replies, now to research on how to cross the bar at narooma safely :-) i dare say i'll spend a bit of time on the rock wall watching how the pros do it.
  8. Hi all, I have just moved across to the ACT after spending 2.4 years in Darwin and 4 years in Perth. I'm looking to buy a boat next year and was wondering how big does one have to go, to comfortably manage the chop in NSW south coast open waters. In Perth a boat over 7.5m was considered necessary due it always been windy, to make the ride out more pleasant on an ordinary day, what would you recommend here? I'm wanting to fish all year round and was also wondering is it too cold in winter for an open boat, and what fish fire up in winter that are worth the effort targeting both estuary and open water? Thanks in advance Milt,
