    Re: Ooglies of the deep.

    No electrics Brett.....them the rules for the first trip.

    You need to find yourself a Fishfeeder to do the winding.

    If the first trip is successful then I'll buy one.Actually what would you pick out of a Fishfeeder, a MadMackerel or an electric?Might have to have a wager to see which one breaks first.

    And as for your comment.....that's a bit of the pot calling the kettle black mate.....I see Bull 1 gets enough daytime posts out there .

    You have a good point Mad Mack isnt happy unless he is in at least 150m of water and he jigs all day.

    You guys really need to come to Korea.
    Everybody is too busy trying to make their first million $$$$ to worry about fishing.
    BTW a good electric reel is bout $1400 starting price here & they use 8 metre rods for jigging kingies.
    Gotta get back to oz

    Re: Ooglies of the deep.

    Yes I will do the first trip manually and see how it goes.

    I have an 80W International that I have never used - will fill it with 200lb braid - about 1000m.

    I have a mate who favours electric reels even in 80m of water, but he is rich and lazy and likes laughing at me winding up my rig.

    I know downriggershop does a bent butt rod/reel/line combo for $1200 - looks pretty heavy

    Anyway a lot of winding before the electrics for me, but I know that mate of mine will just race out and get the electrics - he can't help himself - another gadget and another opportunity to laugh at me winding whilst he sits back.
    Cheers

    Re: Ooglies of the deep.

    Juna & I are booked on Frenzy Charters July 7th for a deep sea (600m by memory) shot at this type of fishing. I want to have a go at it, but thought going out on a charter that specialises in it would be the best way to learn, gear, tackle, what to look for etc. Trevalla is about the best fish I have ever eaten, & I get it if ever on the menu at restaurants, which is rare, so I thought I better learn to catch my own.
    Frenzy Charters number is 3209 4576 as last I heard there were still a few bookings available. I know nowornever was organising this trip but pulled out, so is there anyone else booked on this one?

    Re: Ooglies of the deep.

    I reckon before you get too into the whole thing, some land based detective work should take place, look at charts for your area and see if there is any bottom features way out, is there any pros that work the area drop lining, is Blue eye and cod even up that way? I am sure there will be someting on the deep reefs, but some leg work before you even go might just help you be successful.

    Re: Ooglies of the deep.

    Just returned from valet boat services (new toys) and apparently a minimum of 1kw transducer may be needed will see bottom with 83-200 but not real good. so who has a 1kw i sure as shite don't.
    So any one got a deckie space or more to the point how far out is it?

    Re: Ooglies of the deep.

    you will certainly need a good sounder to find new ground, however, you will do OK by just drifting around from GPS co-ordinates, as long as you can get some off someone, almost all of our deep water fishing is just a 'drift and hope" affair, but we have a few pros that are almost always there and you just line up a drift with them.

    Re: Ooglies of the deep.

    I think a few of us have 1Kw trannies, just as well because I don't think any of us have spots apart from some general marks.

    I'd be interested in attending a group trip out of Scarborough

    It is certainly a style of fish that has got me interested

    I would be giving it a go by hand using Alvey reels also

    It might be a good opportunity to give the 1kw transducer on the furuno a real workout
