    Bunker group Boult/Sykes

    So I canít believe itís taken this long but the cherries have lined up and have booked accom. at the Captain cook and will be towing the boat up to 1770 for the first time fishing in the first week of May, itís a 28% waning moon that week so Iím assuming the run will be good but the fishing might be a bit hard going without the current, Plan is to fish Boult Wednesday and get a feel for the lay of the land then head into the lagoon for the night and fish Sykes on the Thursday! This is all weather dependant of course, for the seasoned fishos that head up that way does that sound like a decent plan for a first time scout or have I missed anything, will be dropping into the vmr to pick their brains and show them my planned routes before setting off aswell
    Thanks all

    Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark

    Well bit of an update! Went up to 1770 on 4/5 and headed out Wednesday morning to fish east of Boult reef but not sure what it was but heaps of shows on good bottom but it all seemed shut down and fish werenít feeding, there was a blow that night so headed back to ramp with only one fish in the bag 😢, Thursday morning we waited for the easing of winds and punched out to the lagoon for protection, woke up Friday morning to a glass out and headed straight to Sykes, first drop a good red throat and that was it, kept moving around finding good bottom picking off hussar,trout and red throat here and there however anything decent that took a bit to get up was taxed, was running a torium 30 with 80lb locked up and still wasnít enough however Friday was defo better than the Wednesday. Overall was a great trip to get away and gather info about the ramp,bar,lagoon entrance and as we started our way home a nice isolated bommie about 5m high not very big caught my eye so went back over to have a look and it was loaded so did a few drops and got smoked with braid getting dragged over the reef, interestingly both times was hit as I was winding back up off the bottom, unfortunately I had run out of time to really fish it so will have me coming back to check it out,

    Glad you got out Terry, it's always nice to try some where else. How did your rig perform with all the work you've put into it.
    I would have loved to join you for the trip but too many commitments, I'm definitely looking at going up early July.

    Performed really well, was surprised at how well the transducer kept a clear bottom at 20knots in good conditions(Al modified the pods to follow the hull and I installed a ss164 transducer in the pod), the swell on the coast causes it to get patchy, punching out to the lagoon with a following sea chewed some fuel think I used 85l for 65km in 2m conditions😂 but punched back Friday arv at 37kn using 1/1, let me know if there is a crew heading up in July as I am more than keen to drag the boat back up theee and get some pointers from the pros

    Pic didn't work. I'll let you know when I'm up there again although it's been a couple of years since I've been there.
