Hi Raiders.

Heard there are some incentive to post fishing reports "catch of the month thingo". There have been in between trips with a feed but not as memorable as this one. So I am going to report on my fishing trip today.

With the forecast predicted to be what looked like the calmest day of the year. I hatched a plan to go do some snapper fishing.

Rounded up my deckies and fellow boat captain to make the trip down. But it appears harder than it seemed because of midweek.

However I did hook up with a Snapper king , Pete (Dtrojan) he was going down as well. We met up after launching, had a chat and decided to fish the first mark together then split up to cover more grounds.

It was a gloriest day as per forecast, It seemed just great to be out there and getting a fish was a bonus.

Anyways, The tactic was to throw plastics around, Berkeley GULP jerk shads and Nemesis. We got nothing at the first mark, then on the 2nd I hooked up, hoping it be a snapper but it turned out to be a morwong. Then another hit, 10 seconds into the fight, pulled hook.

3 minutes pass as I was talking on the phone with Pete, my rod goes off again. This felt like a good fish, taking lots of drags and the tug of war lasted a while and then my PB snapper climbed on to the board. It is around 80cms. :).

Then my deckie got into the action and landed a few more decent fish. Here are the pics and I will post up a video to come in a few days.

Hope you enjoy and please vote. ( and I dont mean this Saturday 7th)

Now with Video:

Wow you guys got these big reds all sorted out. Yet to crack the 40cm. Good work :-) Just out of curiosity how deep had they been feeding? caught on bait or plastic? Keep up the good work.

I really need to get my priorities back in order LOL

Tell ya what, we've been talking about targeting reds for a couple of years now, something different from the usual kings and hairies. And it is only this year that we've started with the reds, Tony led the way. He puts the time and effort to read up on how to best target reds. He watches ALLLLLL the youtube videos!! LOL, and look at what he produces. Totally deserved!!!

Oh, you got pics Basil? I got a freaken running commentary with pics! :D

Great catch, great Pics! Thanks for sharing.

By the way, you forgot to include the co-ordinates for that spot. :sun:

Great read, day and better fish. I got out the same day not to far from you and managed a few in the mid 60's. There's been some great fish of late down way and ive heard and seen even bigger fish caught abit wider around the coal ships. Fingers crossed the reddys hang around to play. Congrats again and great fish
