View Full Version : 1770

g'day, i'm going to spend a couple of weeks at 1770 over christmas, and was wondering if anyone had some good marks to get a hold of some red fish, some nice rubbly ground would be the go i rekons, even some hussar and parrot would keep me happy. also, last time i was there i saw a good size barra jump out up in one of the creeks along the front, anyone caught one up that way? also saw some huge jacks free swimming in the middle of the day, wish i could swam a bit faster that day.
i think i will probally do some fishing around bustard head at the rocks there for some cobia and mackeral, looks like a likely spot,

thanks, pootsy.

Be carefull!!!!
Some of those marks may be in the GREEN zones, make sure youcheck them out!
If you call in and see me at Agnes/1770 bait and tackle I will give you maps of the green zones etc. We are located next door to the butchers in Endeavor plaza, main shopping centre at Agnes.

Never know, may give you a couple of marks myself ;)

Regards, Tony

G,day Pootsy
Yeah mate, the thai shop is still going!
I'll give you some bait ground marks when I see ya mate ;)

Finding it hard to get enough time to stay ahead of the Ausfish forums these days, I continually miss relevant posts :-/
I have to be carefull with my marks these days, many are from pre greenzone days so I have to be carefull to check where they are, some good spots are now unfishable!!
