Saturday Offshore

6 posts in this topic

Day started well with heaps of live bait at Bundeena, headed out with a spread to the Sydney Fad. nice glassy morning , a few boats at the Fad with a few small Dollies jumping but no takers on the live baits and after 45 mins of bugger all happening we trolled out to the Canyons , pretty decent current running had us at 10.2 knots at one stage , followed current lines , did anything we could but we didn't turn a reel, lots of coral spawn but it thinned out as we headed East, water temp average about 23 but patches out wide up to 26 . Listened to skeds coming in from a Sydney comp, but the only report was a mako, and a few small blacks hooked further North.

Sent some live baits in around Jibbon Bombie before we called it a day and couldn't even tempt a King lol , so it was just one of those days....but as always good company and some nice cold bevo's made it a great day regardless, 

Cheers

Gday Al is was the same story with us great conditions  but not one turned a reel we came out through sydney early went to 1st  fad but only tiny kings there plenty of bait moved out to waverider for donuts ., then trolled north to palmy in 70 -80 phantoms   for zero then headed wider and came back south to browns with water near 26 degrees then back to 12 mile / fad for zero......so after 7 hours and 160 kms covered called it a tough day and headed in.......like you said just 1of those  days :(

I pretty much did what you did on Saturday. We hit all the fads, the canyon, the peak. Got zeros. Only the "flathead drift of shame" saved us.
