Trolling lures

Recommended Posts

Went trolling for some game species yesterday around browns mountain using two skirted lures and two deep diver lures. The weather was fantastic, however there’s no fish to be found in the four hours I trolled. On the way back to Sydney I noticed a lot of baitfish just out from Randwick, so I thought I’ll give it one more go trolling lures. The result was an instant hit on the two skirted lures first. I was a bit close to the rocks at that time, so I steered the boat away from the cliff and a few seconds later one of the deep divers got hit as well. I kept the boat going slowly away from the cliff and started to bring in the fish from the closet lure first. Few minutes later landed all three kings of which one is a keeper. So called it a day and made some king fish sashimi for dinner.

Nice catch mate. I always keep saying to myself that it only takes one good bite to turn a crap day into a good one.

Nice rig, now that's what I call a boat:D. Nothing to rave about last sunday, had the family with me, plan was to catch some bait with my trusty sabiki and go for some kings around blue point, no takers though. So just bottom bashed outside the harbour

might be out there early Sunday morning before the wind picks up. Had a great session jigging the artificial reef last time out, though the biggest fish snapped 50lbs leader and took my favourite jig:(
