    "Alexander's" red adventure off DI

    The boys on "Alexander" (Pepi, Sasho, Frank and Pepi's Dad Rob) returned late last night from a 1 day trip off Double Island.
    They had fished there before on the original "Alexander" which was sold two years ago together with the sounder and GPS marks.

    The new boat a 7.6 meter Performance Plate Boat only had one trip offshore before to the Barwon Banks so this trip off DI was without any sounder marks.

    They did extremely well for only 6 hours fishing time with 3 good red emperor (7, 9 and 13kg), a big Gold spot wrasse, and the bag limit on venus tusk fish (tuskies).

    The reds were caught by Rob on a paternoster rig using mullet fillets for bait. The snood rigs and ganged hooks under a 10 ball sinker only caught tuskies.

    The boys had intended to go out again today but business commitments put an end to todays trip

    I tried to post pics (reduced to less than 100kb) a number of times today but Ausfish picture manager won't allow uploading.

    Sasho will try to add pics in a reply to this thread.

    Cheers

    Hey Bazza, try uploading them via Facebook and then download them from facebook as it does an auto compression on images brining most of them into line with the upload protocols.

    Killer effort guys well done, some nice fish there. Lucky there is plenty of deck room to throw the fish down. That boat is magic.
    Can't wait to see more of what Alex catches next.
    Cheers Mossy.

    There is a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot

    I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges

    Up here we Use Hussar as baits for real RED FISHS (SHSIIFDER)

    Good report, cracking reds and awesome boat.

    However, you have put your registration symbols on back to front. One too many beers maybe?

    That was Frank The Fishing Machine and dads doing, I think Frank should stick to catching fish. They were only for that trip a sticker guy is making up full stickers for it. So when we have time and can be stuffed we will take the boat to him. Lol
