Waz-in-Oz Posted August 14, 2011 Report Share Posted August 14, 2011 Day 2 pre-fish : It is more about exploring the area and seeing what fish we can mark up at spots we are likely to fish, ***sing weather and water conditions. I also carry my I-Pad so when back at the motel we can look at up to date condition reports, google maps to look over the area (Hinchinbrook channel is a very large area to fish). Plus a bit of practice to see what they are biting on - One of the new trends is using Jackal Transams (or what I call gutter cleaners, as they hook every bit of loose mangrove stick sitting in a gutter). I have some more learning to do on these as I caught most of my fish on the low tides with Gold Bombers and hi-jackers but Ben worked them out for certain situations. Time will tell I guess. With the cold weather there was a fair few big Salt Water crocs around, we eletric motored over this one and he just sat on the bottom in 12 foot of water but we marked him on the sounder. This was a decent one but there were a few bigger old girls we saw over the 4 days - we just pay them the respect and keep an eye out but they tend to slither away.
