    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    Was Awsome out there today got a 9 and 20kg gold spot around 7 or 8 trout Spanish and jobbie. Day was mostly flat although on the full tide it was white capping where we were until the tide dropped out flattened right out. Some strong Currents today variable vis. Unfortunately I'm back at work Thursday so no more mid week trips for me back to weekend warrior status damn

    yeah it was pretty nice.....(After a phone call from daintreeboy yesterday asking if i was keen - I made the executive decision that i was due a day off.....) slight change of plan saw us head out in my 4m tinny instead of DaintreeBoy's boat - but conditions were awesome so it didn't affect us too much.

    Mackies were going off with floating pilchard's getting hit before we could get a line to the bottom.

    Seemed to be lots of spotties around and a fair few missed hookups on the floaters as a result. Nailed three solid spaniards though and dropped a couple more. brought one nice spottie home and had another bisected by a monster spanish in plain view. We must have caught 20 small sharks each that seemed to be hanging with the spotties (they seemed to have no trouble missing the hooks....). Great day even if we only got one decent bottom fish for the day (it went 19kg - though not sure how accurate my scales are as it didn't look quite that big).Big Cod.jpg

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    Here's one of the pinnacles I found off Innisfail the other night, some nice ground out there but not too many fish hanging around, just a few decent fish on that small bommie. Found a much bigger pinnacle but it was a ghost town.

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    Interesting Nicko, if I saw that on my sounder I would maybe raise an eyebrow and more than likely move on.
    Totally due to my inexperience, I probably shouldn't overlook these spots that don't show any fish on screen.
    Cheers for a bit of insight.
    I'm always looking for the massive lumps that have a few fish symbols.

    hey Mattya, it's probably a good idea to switch the symbols off. They're pretty unreliable

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    Not much happening at that spot above Matty, the bommie had a few fish on it and I think we caught a few from there. What's funny though is then we moved to rubble later in between two bommies, the sounder showed absolutely zero and we started getting fish. I think the rubble hid the fish. Later when they really came on the bite though we could see a fair few on the sounder. Anyway here's what we were fishing, you can't tell from the image but there's a bommie either side. (I've cropped some stuff off the chart or some people could figure out where I was).
