Heading to bicheno for australia day weekend. Hoping to set the dropline for the first time. Could anyone help me out with any spots for blue eye and also tips for setting the line. Cheers Blake

Hey Blake, haven't fished up there for years but know there's some gravelly patchy bottom in a NE direction in 70-80m which pull stripey.

The shelfs actually not that far off (compared to out of here at Triabunna) so reckon you'd be right anywhere E or NE'ly out that way.

Tips for the drop line....

1. Make sure you have enough line laugh1
2. Have plenty of weight as the tide/current can run fairly hard in deeper water
3. Mark your drop on the GPS
4. Attach an orange buoy/or flag to your licenced buoy to as a white is hard to see with a bit of chop on
5. Don't wait too long before pulling
6. Have someone else pull it grin1

Good luck, proka

Thanks Proka. How long should the line be in the water. Set it come back in then go back out? or stay out there.

Depends. If you can sound up activity then only drop for an hour or so but there's no hard and fast rule. Bit like rod and reel fishing really. Leave it there too long and your catch could get off or something might eat it.

If you're pulling by hand I'd only be doing it once in 300-400m doh1
