    Rosco is right! Tings and sandies galore

    Left Raby Bay ramp 5 am this morning, dropped 8 pots in the honey hole and then headed over to the Rous/small ships intersection area as per Rosco’s trip a couple days ago. Fished quite deep about 6 meters.

    Tings started a bit slow but we found them after a while and they were outstanding quality. Bit patchy. Northerly sprung up about 10:30 and that slowed them a lot. But we had 90 on board already, nearly a bag out for two of us.

    Lifted the pots at about 11am and got 21 nice quality sandies. Rebaited pots for an overnight soak.

    Same plan for tomorrow morning.

    Yes thanks for the heads up. A few reports might get a few more people interested.

    We were over there a couple of weeks ago and got 40 or so, but nowhere nearly as good quality as the ones today. Got a dozen crabs that day off Ormiston too.

    To be honest at $7.50 a bag at the servo for prawns, we will be feedin them squid tomorrow, espcially since we catch our own! And they bit as well today on squid as prawns.

    Great report guys I haven't been on here for a while and it's nice a few fish have been getting caught. Looking at taking the kids out Saturday for some crabs and whiting so will head over to the rouse but looking at dropping some pots as well where would be the best place to unload them from wello. Thanks in advance guys

    Went back early this morning to check the pots left in to soak overnight from yesterday.

    Got 44 keepers, some great quality crabs too.

    Topped up the crab bait and went to chase some more tings. Word must be spreading because there were already 5 or 6 other boats at the Rous spot when we got there.

    Left at 10:30 as we had another 50+ nice tings in the esky.

    Picked up the pots and decided not to reset them as we have plenty of crabs. Got another 20.

    So total 64 crabs today. Family from around the area must have had the radar on as we have already given a heap away to happy relo’s.
