    Who fishes out from Cairns

    I was looking at the archived saltwater reports in the Cairns area, seems there used to be many more on here from Cairns once than appears to be today. I'm just curious as to how many members are from here. May see one of you out on the water some day . I always head out from the inlet, the ramp down the end, near the water police.

    I know of FNQCairns. Don't really remember any others, i'm sure there would be a few of you.

    Cheers,
    Rob

    Re: Who fishes out from Cairns

    G'day....yeah I still launch my boat out from the trawler base ramp.....I've never had any dramas there yet, touch wood!!

    I've only got a 4m tinnie (yet to figure out a name) which I mainly use around trinity inlet and outside the leads on a good day

    Anyway send us a PM and we can catch up.

    Cheers

    Yeah, I fish out of Cairns and other places. I tend to lauch out of Yorky's if I'm fishing the Cairns reefs........Basically depends on which reef I intend to hit depends on which ramp.....

    Yeah I fish from Cairns. Majority of the time leave from Sugar terminal, and occassionally from Yorkeys.

    This damn wind is not letting up either. Haven't been out in ages.

    Pazz, Yes, the wind has been a shocker. Now we have the closure from tomorrow till 18th on top of that. I went for a run two weeks ago to try a prop, bloody snotty conditions out there, also had that green island ferry pass me flat out. Some big waves came out of that thing, puckered up for a bit!

    Teabag, nice boat. Is that a Formosa c/cab? I sometimes go from Yorkeys also.

    Ryan, when I get this prop sorted out i'll get in touch mate, I've got one getting re-pitched at the moment.

    Re: Who fishes out from Cairns

    Yeah there are a few of us still lurking about on here. I normally launch my 4m tinnie from the sugar terminal if i'm heading into the inlet but usually try and avoid it. I prefer to head up to the Mowbray/Daintree, down south to the Russel/Mulgrave or, like all of next week, drag the boat down to the Hinchinbrook area.

    Hi Richard, Hinchinbrook is a nice place. We rented a holiday house on the marina with it's own pontoon, the one across from the ramp. Magic!

    Teabag, how do they ride mate? I was thinking of getting rid of the old haines down the track for something newer. I have been looking at boats and comparing reviews and so on. I had a look at the Allison fisherman 189 at Boat Scene, very nice rig, but apparently they are no longer making them. I'm not in a rush, just seeing what's out there.

    M8,

    Have'nt been out for a while. Not counting last Fri. to test the new trim tabs, a little bouncy to say the least.

    Drop me a PM if interested and you can come a have a squiz. I have been very happy with the ride though there is obviously better out there but it all comes at a price. If you know what I mean. There are also many who knock them but have never ever been in one let alone seen one, like most things I guess...........IMHO, a good bang for you buck boat and does everything I expect of it an more.......

    Re: Who fishes out from Cairns

    Teabag, Thanks mate. Might do that when I head down the range in future. I've read good reports on them so far. Price, yeah getting pretty steap for a new toy these days.

    Wahoo, I think i recall your boat for sale once. C /console large plate, verado on the butt. Very nice rig. Weather is starting to look good again, about bloody time!


    Frank100, Bouncy indeed. LOL. I turned back at the last lead after a test run in the inlet. Some other boat my size passed me heading out towards green. Pretty keen fisho's . Barcrusher, very nice. Had a look at them also, bit steep on price though.

    Might hang on to the old haines for a little while longer.

    Cheers,

    Re: Who fishes out from Cairns

    Daz, The Bluewater boats sure do look a treat. My pick would be the 6.4 half cab. You must be aiming higher are you, 7.2 or the 8. Half your luck mate, enjoy the new beast!

    All the best,
    Rob
