    Today's best catch from a 67km mission and 11hr on the water, in pretty average conditions. The giant squidwings jig I bought didn't arrive so I just fished a big 2 hook dropper with squid baits, was hoping for a Bluenose but just got shit, red cod and spiny dogs. Water filthy off the coast after the rain over the weekend.

    I did see tuna jumping at one point and trolled for an hour with 2 lures out but no luck, any of you ever caught an albacore just casting lures around tuna action?

    I have come back with less before Gimp
    Although red cod are a bit crappy. I tried to fillet one fresh a while ago and it was like wet tissue paper. I have heard that you can wrap it in newspaper and keep in the fridge and fillet it the next day. Should be ok for a fish pie or patties ?

    At least youre out there giving it a go and learning. I am no expert on albacore but have caught a fair few just trolling thru them with the lure in the prop wash.
    Just got a new prop for my boat. Might have to go out for a burn and try for a few albies myself.
    Normally I go south as theyre in closer.

    Yeah as long as I don't end up in the shit with weather or on the bar....

    Down South sounds a bit safer but it's pretty accessible to get out of Hoki when it's flat, saves the 5hr drive to Jacksons

    h I must have missed you. Yep it goes pretty well. Need a 15hp though
    Have you tried any different pitched props on your outboard? can make a big difference in performance especially when loaded up

    No, just the one it came with - probably just going to sell the 8hp at some stage and get a 15 for the sake of a bigger safety margin.

    The glue on the Railblaza RIB ports is failing already, one is unusable as a rod holder because it's so loose. Not wildly impressed. Followed installation instructions to the letter. Probably get some screw on vertical holders for the transom.

    67km is a big mission in a little boat!
    I did wonder how well those rod holders would stay stuck.

    I have a virtually brand new 8&1/2 x 8&1/2 prop here you can have a play with, yours will probably be 8&1/4 x 7&1/2.

    Could be the go for one player fishing in your boat.....it will be like changing up from 4th to 5th gear.

    literally a 2min job to swap over.

    pm your addy Ill send it down.
