Great post, thank you for sharing your pics.

That boat is a weapon! Very impressive.

How deep where the blue eye?

Thanks Dan, I certainly find it the more fun way thatís for sure.

Unsure about the ropes, I saw them as well. Maybe a pulley system for a small boat...? Iím unsure but Iím pretty certain they wouldnít be cray pots.

Offshore Reports / South Cape Bluefin
« Last post by Benno on January 15, 2019, 12:29:06 pm »
Took the boat down to Catamaran last Friday to check out a few of the surf spots around the South coast.

We had been waiting for along time to get the right conditions (swell, wind, tide etc.) to it make the long trip, somewhat successful.

We noticed birds working off South cape on the way down there, but the general consensus was to continue past, and get some waves while the conditions were favourable.

Fortunately, on the way back past in the afternoon, the birds were doing their thing again, so we threw some skirts over the side, and within 5 minutes we had a Bluefin on the line. 10 minutes later, we had a 25kg fish in the boat. Definately the icing on the cake.

Had a great day out, the Sterncraft performed well, and we made it back without any incidents. Sashimi all round. [ Guests cannot view attachments ]

Is cockle creek up the east coast?

No mate, literally as far south as you can drive.

Another great session mate, diving definitely seems to be the most productive way to snag a cray. Well done.

Spent last week at St Helens, we had great weather and also great fishing... we raised mako everyday, although we only bothered to hook one which we tagged and released,  250kg model[emoji15]. We were hoping for a smaller model but the smallest shark we seen was around 180kg..!
Smashed the blue eye as they were thick and gem fish.. also got a few cray....
Also nearly caught an orca....as he took a blue eye on our line...[emoji15][emoji23]

Thanks, Paikea, sadly, all the trials proved in NQ was that the painted crays wouldn't go into any pots with enough regularity to make potting a viable industry, the Torres Strait has a booming export market, all caught by divers.
