  1. For a 5m boat should be very quick. I got into boating since I was given a 4.2m inflatable with 15hp outboard. I soon realised it was too small for what I want to do, which is heading out to coastal reefs, such as long reef. I then bought a new quintrex sea spirit 510 for that purpose and to learn on. It seemed daunting at first driving it onto the trailer, but just a few goes it becomes so easy. It didn't stop there though, soon after the Qunnie I wanted to so further out to sea to fish species like tuna or marlin(which I'm yet to catch), which got me into a 6m glass boat. From my experience the 5m aluminium boat is much easier to handle and forgiving, so a better learning boat.
  2. Went trolling for some game species yesterday around browns mountain using two skirted lures and two deep diver lures. The weather was fantastic, however there’s no fish to be found in the four hours I trolled. On the way back to Sydney I noticed a lot of baitfish just out from Randwick, so I thought I’ll give it one more go trolling lures. The result was an instant hit on the two skirted lures first. I was a bit close to the rocks at that time, so I steered the boat away from the cliff and a few seconds later one of the deep divers got hit as well. I kept the boat going slowly away from the cliff and started to bring in the fish from the closet lure first. Few minutes later landed all three kings of which one is a keeper. So called it a day and made some king fish sashimi for dinner.
