  1. We only only found blue water 8-10km past the Swansea FAD on Saturday, looked like there was a few boats fishing it on our way past to the shelf. We hooked 2 Striped Marlin in around 190m but lost both. πŸ€™
  2. Sounds very unlucky, but good work in getting the strikes in the first place! 😁 I just tried sending you a PM but says I can't!?
  3. Sam, I am no means experienced but currently have all my smaller skirts (6" to 8") rigged with 150lb Momoi Ultra Hard targeting smaller blacks & stripes. All my larger lures are rigged with 200lb & 300lb although I know a lot of guys that will happily fish a lot heavier. We made the call to fish lighter leaders to get more action from the lure to try get more bites although it probably makes no difference at all!! (But that's what we are confident in using πŸ€”). IMO you won't break one off only fishing 8kg drag, and getting onto it quickly - 150lb takes a lot to rub through! Remembe
  4. Yeah amazing to see them up so close. There were 2 packs we came across of at least 5 and 6, they just didn't stop popping up through the arvo. Guys at the club didn't believe it either but most of them are on video. 🀣🀣 Thanks Pickles! I'll definitely remember the waves breaking over the edge of the boat!! πŸ˜„πŸ’© The underwater shot is just from a GoPro I had under the water - I got some amazing footage watching how they swim up against the boat - Time to make a video!
  5. Next time! πŸ˜…πŸ˜ Thanks mate, weathers looking a lot better and so many fish caught last week, hopefully we're on! You gonna be up that way? Or just at Murrays? 🀣🍻
  6. I'd swap it for a Marlin in the comp any day!!! πŸ˜‚ But get keen, my boats fuel line has been replaced now. I'm up at Port Stephens this week for the Interclub - As soon as the weather is good down here I'll follow you out and we'll give it a crack! πŸ€™
  7. Thanks Donna, appreciate it! I still have enough for another 2 meals, can already taste them πŸ˜†πŸ€€ All the best with the recovery, hope your out and about again soon.
  8. Thanks guys! πŸ€™ Yeah they just kept popping up everywhere (Got quite a few on video) when that Nor'easter picked up! Shame we couldn't convert any.
  9. Guess that true Yowie! πŸ˜„ ...and how good are they!! 🀀
  10. We had a small window of opportunity to fish the morning and launched from Gosford ramp at 4:00am on the 670HT Bar Crusher β€˜Fraid Knot’ with 2 mates. Weather conditions were just as poor as forecasted, with the wind already gusting quite hard. It was going to be a long day! πŸ€” We had no option but to fish as we were fishing in the CCGFC Skins Tournament. After a very slow run out across Brisbane Waters with only a few metres visibility in the dark, and heavy rain along with a few nears misses of sandbars and moored yachts we finally made it into Broken Bay. We struggled to
  11. Great report and some nice elbow slappers! You have a clear photo of the PB next to your rod, you could easily gauge where it finishes and get an actual measurement off the rod if you wanted the exact size!! πŸ˜πŸ€™
  12. Good luck mate, it was hard fishing when we were there! Try find the same lure we were using (Pic in the report) - You may need to upgrade the assist hooks. The only other real tricks are be prepared to cast a lot! πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚ We found fish early morning, and late arvo. It was also very weedy when we fished it, try target the edge of these beds (Normally off the slow rolling hills). In saying that we also got a few bigger one around snags. Hope some of this helps. πŸ€™
  13. Nice report! Some good flatty there. Always worth it for a decent feed
