Its been geting warmer and the fish are moving in closer with great kingfish grouping around the bait schools and xos snapper feeding in under these schools. We have been fishing out around the cape with lots of 15 plus kg fish and some just to big for my charters to stop. Some anglers are just getting smashed and cant lift the rod to even gather line..

The Kingfish has also been great with the fish size being on average larger than this time last year and great numbers to be caught at the Cape and around at the 71 foul.

The Monterey took out the 2012 Juniors comp again ...

Its got to be winter with the cold mornings but the weather has been amazing allowing us to get out and do some deeper water fishing. The Kingfish have been a bit slow on the inshore reefs but the bite has been great out on the outer spots past the Cape. Recently went out with a couple of guys that had the fine art of Jiging sorted. They pulled some greatt Kingis off the 71 reef and put serious heat on the gear, Well done!

The Snapper have been on the 100m line with some good catches de...

Hi to all,  Well you might be back at work but I have been having some brillant work days of my own. The kingfish at the Cape have been amazing with fish pushing 20kg and lots of bites. The problem is stopping the fish but it's a good problem to have.

I have been fishing the 70M foul to late if the tide hasn't been pushing at the Cape with lots of 10kg fish and picking up Groper at the same time off the bottom.

Further up the coast at Rocky has been plaged with Barracou...
