  1. Thanks for getting back to me JonD. We’ve got 2 x 6m centre cabs with 200L fuel tanks. The reef is around 60km so shouldn’t be a problem on a good day. There should be mackerel around the islands this time of year so hopefully we get onto a few. Thanks mate
  2. Hi guys/girls, We’re going camping on Hook island (Whitsundays) in a month for a week and I was seeing if anyone had any marks or advice to share for the area? I’m thinking of heading to leeper shoal and jester reef (near Deloraine island) or would it be better getting out to the GBR (weather permitting)? Also seeing if it’s worth running down to Edward and yuindalla islands? I’ve fished the area a few years ago and got mackerel, trout, long tail tuna around dolphin point and mackerel bay but it was fairly tough given it’s such a large area to fish. Any advice would be much appreciated 👍
  3. Hi guys, just seeing if anyone has any experience with camping on the islands in the Whitsundays? We’re going up in August with 2 x 6 metre boats and are looking for the best place to camp where we can get the boat ashore without too much trouble. Also looking for somewhere that’s fairly protected from S/E winds. Also not sure if certain sites are worse than others for midges etc? Any advice would be great. Thanks 👍
  4. Just interested to know if anyone has installed a boat collar and if so is it worth doing? I’ve got a 4.75 side console that feels a bit ‘tippy’ at rest so I’m considering fitting a collar. Thanks 👍
  5. Yep just sent him a text. Thanks Zoran 👍
  6. Hi I’m after a mobile mechanic for a service. I’m located in neutral bay. Let me know if you can recommend anyone. Thanks!!
  7. Kokomo was awesome. Had a centre console for sports fishing and game boat for marlin. I only went out for 3 half days. I got married there so didn’t want to piss the missus off too much. But yes it’s lots of $$$’s
  8. Went to Kokomo island in Fiji a weeks back and got onto some good fish. Dogtooth was caught on 30lb braid.
  9. Nice one! What bait did you get them on?
  10. Yeah we got a 20-25kg wahoo, dropped 2 decent Spanish at the boat, got a fair few decent kings around fish rock, 2 cobia, got heaps of mac tuna, 2 spotties trolling the current line in the bay after the southerly. It was pretty hard going with that water. Went to the fad once and it was dead. Really needed those southerlies to blow to clean it up. Also live baited small mac tuna and put them down around 20 metres on the downrigger and got smoked by a lot of big fish and hooked a few monster sharks we couldn't get up but fought to try and get out gear back for ages.
  11. Yeah we go out across the bar. Be careful going out on a run out tide with a north easterly swell and/or wind. How big is your boat? We have a 6.5m centre cab and the worst day was a 10 knot nor'easter with a 1.8 easterly swell with a run out tide and it was as bad as I would go out in. All other days were fine even when the swell was 2 metres from the south and a 20 knot southerly. You would also want to make sure the river is clean because we had a bit of grief with the dirty water.
  12. Yeah I thought it was a bit of a stupid question! Just thought we could maybe set the downrigger a bit higher in the water column and it might make a difference. Also got a 10-15kg mackerel to the boat and it ran under the boat and got busted off.
  13. Got this wahoo at south west rocks today. Got a couple of yellowfin and lost a 10-15kg Spanish at the boat. Does anyone have any ideas on how to avoid the sharks? We were downrighing small mac tuna down around 20 metres but kept getting big sharks. Should we be keeping them on the surface?
