How has it been fishing since it was moved?

Went there two weeks ago to fish over the 6.30pm high tide. Note for new players if you plan to fish the gutters or the reefs at Fenton, do it over the neaps. The wind didn't play the game and we bashed into a 10-15knot NE wind with the goal to trawl some gars and find a sail or two but the water was poop, clarity was shot.

Headed west to the rig, logtails busting up within a few nM of the platform, we landed 1 tuna bu they where on the move quick so we just fast trolled to the rig in the hope of a Spanish Mack, none popped up.

It was a fish a cast, you could be selective if you had the right technique, we wanted lomtails and they seemed to be on the edge and you had to see then jump well clear of the water to know you had a shot, we used the smallest Halco Outcast lures we could with a single SL 12 hook for ease of release and landed another 4 tuna and a few queenfish and trevs as bycatch if the cast was wrong.

No poop, cast a fish kind of stuff, if you can get there and have visitors they will never forget it!

Target was macks, sails and squid as we heard overnight they come up but we got none. 4 healthy long tails to 8kg filled the esky anyway.

2 hour trip out and 1.5 home in the dark. Calm day below 10 knots and it's anyone's game! Get into it before she apparently shifts off.

She hasn't moved either, same spot as 12 months ago. Very expensive exercise to shift a rig so that hasn't happened. Head up south gutter and you'll see her, spot on my marks for last year.
