    The divers I hooked 3 blacks last year on the red head white body rapala cd-18's but had trebles on and couldn't get a decent hook up. I have changed the rear trebles to single's.
    I use large jigging hooks for my singles. Try and get the in-line eye's so only need 1 split ring but if not 2 splits are fine or use an assist cord to tie on. I also beef up the split rings to 150lb or 200lb as I buy these in bulk for jigging but also have 300lb for popping.
    All divers I run 1 foot of single strand wire and for the skirts just the pre-rigged mono.

    Hopefully get to give a report with at least one billfish in it after the weekend!!!

    Unfortunately NOTHING!!! Managed 3 strikes and 1 hook up on mutton birds. Other than that got 2 small strikes but didn't see what touched them. Both on a Blue Purple skirt. No bait along the 30m line. No bait along the 50m line and nothing along 70m line. Heaps of flying fish on the way out to point lookout but nothing after that.
    Had no hits on divers even though had great bait on the 7's.
    heard a few calls of little blacks up the Cape and the Trench. Will try again in bout a month.

    Cheers

    cheers for posting mate.. Shame about the strikes that didnt stick.. may have been mactuna or little yellowfin.. The flying fish usually are a great indicator for dolphinfish.. Did you get and decent water clarity? Ive heard there is a fair bit of algae still in the water keeping it green. Hopefully we get the deep purple stuff full of baitballs soon

    I found the water was alright past the 30m line east of point lookout. Wasn't the deep purple we all love to see but wasn't green either. Temp in close was half a degree warmer but after the rain it seemed to settle and even out around that 23.5. hopefully it will get to that 24 and above soon.
    I will be going up the sunny coast to get among some of their action. Was going to go up 2 weeks ago but the billfish comp was on and didn't want to "intrude" on that. Hopefully get into it there for a little bit of practise before they show up in numbers here.

    Does anyone know if the Fads on the arti reef just north of the seaway have been redeployed yet? They take them away for the whales every year...

    Re: small blacks tracking...

    shoulda stayed in bed this morning... the water is as green as it gets off the seaway today and cold.. 21.6, Didnt see any bait anywhere except for the south end of the 24's there was a bit but nuthing on it at all.. was even floatlining for snaps and couldnt loose a bait.

    The reason im posting though is the fact that just inside the 24's i saw a free swimmer!! just a little one but still....

    apparently the water is really great up off fraser island and there should be a few little marlin starting to show.. Anyone been out off fraser trolling lately?

    The water was cold and green off Point Lookout on Monday until after lunch when a hard running blue current line pushed in.
    It was full of flying fish and also seen a few tuna schools and a couple of yellowfin around 15kg as well.
