Post Posted: Sun Nov 02, 2008 10:39 am    Post subject: Channel Point Powertail Mecca

On a recent trip to Channel Point I discovered something. A POWERTAIL MECCA, while fishing throughout the trip after a day pulling up countless reef fish (Blubone,snapper,cod,ect) And 3 1.3m+ Macks. We dicided to go to the jewy ledge for a chance at some quility jewfish. We looked at the sounder and the fish were going off in about 40m of water. we stopped for a fish within about 5mins of dropping a line i was on. after a good 10 min (on a heavy handline mind you) fight i pulled upp this massive powertail it measured 1.2m should have got a photo. After putting my line back down (with the same bit of bait) My brother & dad were both struggling with there powertails at this point. Got another one on Another 1m+. We spent about 1.5 hours here waiting for the tide to come in, pulling up for 10 powertail each with even a few pesky jewfish showing up. Then Went and checked the crab pots, only got 29 crabs, 7 legels in one pot. Would highly recomend this trip. A word of advice if looking for macks and reef fish look behind south & north peron island in protected rejoin i found a live reef there in about 5m of water the water there is amazingly clear. For Macks Just burly up and float a ganged hooked slimy mack or sandmar, even caught one on a shark fillet!

Listen to my bands song we need to get our plays up.

that is some quality powertail, the king of our ocean. :applause: Would love to see some photos of Trophy Powertail like that. At length their grunting would almost deafen you. I love Powertail.
