Heading out there tonight. Was planning to fish Fenton patches on the tide change for Jews. Then head out there for the run. Does tides matter much. It is neaps, so only a few m movement.

Hello peeps

This thing has my interest up and I plan to head out late Saturday evening for a few hours of night fishing.

What sort of rigs/what should i expect to catch at night? and is it worth fishing in the dark around there?

I was hoping to cast for tuna and bait or troll for mackerals. Is there any bottom bouncing?

Or should I head out early Sunday am and try not to get caught in the wind?

any advice is much appreciated

I'm heading out for a look early tomorrow morning. Hopefully the wind holds off. I'll have a go for a Jewie or two on the turn of the low on the way home.

Probably try to jig up the Mackies. Much more fun than trolling! :catch: 8)

Didnt end up going to the rig. Went to the patches early and was back in the harbour by sunrise. Not too much going on out at fentons, back in the harbour had more luck and hooked onto a good sized cobia. Back at the ramp by at 8am before the wind picked up too much.

Did you end up heading out there?

We were out there last week aroud 3 meters of run Was hard work sorted mackies from the Millions of GTs. Wondering if anyone fished on a larger tide change say 5 meters and can you fish south gutter with that. Cheers

Oceandom 91 no I didn't get out. The wind in the evening wasn't my friend so I stayed in.
