    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    Well not zero, there's a few fish there but not a great show. Forgot to get an image later with fish right through the bottom third of the water column, will get a decent show pic next time I see one (hopefully next trip lol).

    There's a quick tip I learned of Youtube though for my sounder, avoid the zoom button and instead set a minimum and maximum depth, that will force the sounder to use all of the available pixels within a certain range, where the zoom just makes the current pixel image larger. So in the image above the minimum is 30m and the maximum is 40m.

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    does anyone know if there is an outboard mechanic on the Tablelands to service my 115 Yammy or do I need to take it to Cairns? I'm in Mareeba.

    yes mate, his name's John and he's at Karumba at the moment, he's coming through Mareeba in early October so I have him lined up to service my boat and a couple mates might jump on the bandwagon, good pricing apparently, he does all our work boats. 0411636597.

    cheers, Nick.

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    Hi guys, anyone got some generic mack spots for offshore Innisfail? Apart from Meaburn Rock and the Sisters, further out around the reef would be good. Had a look at a few pinnacles the other day but no macks to be found.. there's some nice contour lines on one reef so that's the next place I'll be having a look..

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    Hi guys, with Steve's permission I'm looking at making a NQ fish ID chart with common species etc. See the forum link to have a look at his southern version.

    I need help though with a photo of a coral trout, saddletail seaperch, scarlet seaperch and goldspot cod that someone has the ability to photoshop to remove the background, looking at image quality close to his chart.

    Any other fish you'd like to see on it that aren't already on the southern version? Green and Rosy jobfish Both types of grunter?

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    Anyone headed out this week? Looks like 10 knots or so for the end of the week.

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    I'm off to Maggie for the weekend, so unfortunately I'm out. The tides look a little rubbish mid week, not sure if that will impact on the fishing. Fingers crossed it's down for next week though.

    Bit rough for my little tub unfortunately, but I'll keep an eye on what the wind is like off Innisfail and might do another trip down there.

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    Just came across this? seams cheap, but I just can't quite make out what make it is!!! maybe just the hull only and no trailer. It mentions that there are 10 available.
    Not that I'm looking for another boat at the moment, just thought this was interesting.
