I live at Rockyview. Name Brad

call sign YN080
Tournament 2100 wa
boat should do 200nm on a tank so safe range of maybe 70nm but don't think I would be comfortable much more than 50nm from the harbour.

Thinking of heading out Friday if the weathers good . :) Really keen to chase the spanos so might go to Flat and then nick out to the close fern after.

we had absolute shocker on friday night manage only 2 red emp, 2 rosy jobs, 1 black jew, 1 XOS long fin snapper, 1 nice grunter, 1 grassy sweetlip and one moses perch flat as a tack 100km nne of harbour fished about 50 spots drift and anchor all sounded fish, for very average result.

Like to fish anywhere from Manifold to Cape Cap, muck around at the islands, camping at Yellowpatch. Would like to get up to port clinton for a camp and go further out to the 75 - 80 km mark.

Fished Keppel bay all my 43 years. Done a lot of trips in the old man's 8m Haines Cat before I got my own.
