Had a couple of days at Bicheno with digga put out a burley trail on the shelf to try and pick up a Mako
while waiting put the electrics down managed plenty of ghost cod, then we caught a couple of Pink Ling,
Blue Grenadier, then along came the mako, hooked him after a short fight had him beside the boat and
i thing he relised what was happening and he went mad and took off and snap so away he went, back
to the burley trail hoping there might be another one there put a line out as we were nearly out of burley
just finished putting it out and bang away it goes, after a good fight and half a dozen jumps we had him
beside the boat and on board weighing 93 kilos good little eater. On our way back in stopped and picked
up a few stripies, along with a good feed of flatties from the day before along with a few crays to take
home was a top couple of days

Geez mate, that was quite a haul for your couple of days' effort! 

Clearly there is some fish action somewhere - inshore sites around the south-east are still fairly hit-or-miss, and quite disappointing.  Or maybe that's just me.
Starting to really miss the bigger boats we've had in the past, but when age and arthritis catches up, there's not much alternative than to go smaller and closer-in.

Anyone else out there been having the sort of success Shippy has?  Would love to hear about it!
