    Port Stephens, Allmark reef?

    Hey mate yer bit of a slow start this morning squid hard to come by and nothing touching the downrigger, We decided to head to Almark which was dead as well with a couple of boats on the mark, so we set the spread and started heading south along the shelf about and after about half hour 10kms south of Almark we hooked up, an hour and a half later on 15kg we had a tag in him and next to the boat.

    Alternator issue

    Can anyone give me some advice? I have been having some battery problems lately with running out of battery I have a 2009 mercury 60hp, I tested the battery after fully charged and it read 12.7 volts and also while running it read 12.7 volts I believe I have an issue with my alternator, does anyone agree and could anyone give me a price range I should be expecting for a new one to be installed?

    Sydney Kingfish - With Video

    Cheers Deanfish yer downrigging is definetly a great technique, yer i have realised that alot of anglers change from wire to braid but just interesting to know the reasons

    Sydney Kingfish - With Video

    Great video! unlucky about the downrigger Bomb had you replaced the wire with braid and if so was this to save the downrigger incase you had got snagged, because im wondering what kind of pressure the downrigger would be under with my wire trace when my bomb gets snagged up!!

    Kingfish with video

    I down rig one yakka in the bottom third of the water column and have another one with two bean sinkers sitting roughly I believe about 15ft under the water surface, and slow troll them both.

    Kingfish with video

    Yer we collected about 20 yakkas each and we ran out after about an hour and a half. That's good to know about the squid we weren't the only ones having trouble, we tried collecting them for half an hour but only ended up with one, and unfortunately my mate dropped it overboard pretty disappointing after all that work. But it was a pretty good day catching them small kingy's hopefully the bigger ones move in soon.
