    Offshore Brisbane 9th October

    Headed out 5am lowtide and across the bay was okay
    Near Comby Point was a bit average with tide against NE wind
    First stop 70m deep off Hutchies Reef for undersized pearlies
    Out to 140m deep and current was pretty full on
    80lb electric motor did the job and 10oz lead
    I forgot to take premade snapper rigs so made rigs onboard doing paternoster knots I have not done in 35 years
    3 boats visited and flashed by drifting before leaving with no joy
    We fished until 11.30am when we had to leave with flat 100ah 24v lithium battery
    We got to take home 5 snapper 1 pearlie 1 kingie and a Barcod
    Threw back more than 20 pearlies just under 38cm
    Got monstered by bigger kingfish and submarine cod
    Bait was mullet squid pillies with no stand-out super bait just keep mixing it up
    Only disappointment was fish were just starting to fire up when battery gave up
    Going to add a bridge to boat electric system
    Moved about wide off Caloundra for no keepers
    Headed home mid arvo in a 15 to 20 knot NE
    A nice day out
    Saw the usual dolphins and whales atm

    You have to love those unannounced visitors.
    How are you enjoying those new pneumatic seats of yours.

    The seat is good Dig
    It isn't perfect on short sharp chop bangs but sensational on the bigger stuff
    Gotta put in the autopilot and sit back and it will work better
