Thread: Shelf dive

    Re: Shelf dive

    doug- very rarely is out there!! 99% of our marlin and tuna bites are in the middle of a dead looking ocean. i dare say it would be a long day floating around out there looking for them under water!!!

    your best bet might be getting a big cube trail going for a few hours and then jumping over.

    Doug your a mad man
    I have a spot near the shelf some where which would suit you to a tee. I hope you have a shark shield but.

    Devocean, Day 1 was a reef 75nm out to sea and day 2 was a dive at Penrith Is about 40nm out. If anything the Island was a better dive with fish quality a little better such as jacks, coastal trout spanish etc. Norcat 2 is one of the best fishing/diving boats I have been on. Only three years old, everything works, big bunks, plenty of room, quiet when underway,good cleaning board, large snap freezer, aircon cabins and a good skipper which makes a big difference. One of the Mackay boys won the lucky door prize. There are two Coral sea trips in november and one in dec -if you are keen give Craig the owner a ring.

    At least with visibility going off into infinity you can see anything coming. Perhaps if you shoot a few of those small doggies and tie them off while the're still green you could cut the fuel bill.

    Re: Shelf dive

    Thanks for the info guys. Will definately get a good burley trail going next time. Sorry about the late reply but have been building playgrounds in Toowoomba for a week and when I came home had some computer issues.
    Mick - nice queenies, if the new sea hornet is a railgun I'm sure it will be fine, all railguns are pretty much the same(even though we are sponsed by rabbitech - hope they don't read this)
    Ian- I will have a 45ft yacht by the end of the year which will be kept at gladstone, then I can get out to Marion,Frederick,Kenn etc to chase big doggies. A mate of mine Cameron( a yank) just shot a 91kg doggie in indonesia - it was a monster.
    Rob- have dove with tigers,bulls,blue and oceanic whitetips(their nasty buggers) and probably have dove with a white but I haven't seen them but I bet they have seen me. I'm more worried about getting left behind in the water than sharks.
    Greg- you tease , my shark shield is a 7mm spear.

    Went out on Sunday but it was a bit to squally to head out to the shelf. Dove everywhere round moreton and didn't pull the trigger once. No fish anywhere but lots of rain.
    Cheers all Doug
