  1. Just back from Lord Howe - took a set of light fishing gear - 12lb and I did manage to hook up 5 drummers and landed 1(released of course), all on floating crusty bread. They are really angry fish -all 3 kgs of pure muscle! For anyone else going, make sure you give yourself plenty of time if you want to go out on charter - I was there for 5 days and it was non stop 30kms winds - charters were not running Looks like I will have to come back next time. I did do some kayaking and bounced some SP on the bottom but zero action. Thanks for the tips Jim
  2. Swains trip in July 2018 - 4 open spots

    Hi James - my 10 year old son and wife joined as newbies this year - they had a ball
  3. Thanks Jim - dawn and dusk it is - what sort of bait did you use beside bread?
  4. I am off to Lord Howe for a couple of days and I will be bringing a couple of light rods with me - last time I went, I just couldn’t get those silver drummers off the wharf to bite at anything - anyone got any success? If so, can you share with me some tips to get a hookup? thanks
  5. Hi all, I charter an annual trip to Swains reef for our local sydney fishing club (wentys) with one of the big operators in Gladstone. Our next trip is in late July 2018. We still have 4 spots remaining. It’s a 7 day trip - let me know if anyone is interested (PM me) in joining. It’s a 2 share room and we have 6 dories on the mothership. If you haven’t been to the Swains, think lots of red throat emperors, Spanish macks, coral trout. I attach some photos of our trip this year
  6. Swains in july

    Hi Frosty my crew just came back from the night crossing in July - any gear with 40lb+ line will be fine. I did some light gear fishing and it was terrific. The night crossing is an amazing boat and the Spanish mackerel trolling was fantastic. Have fun.
