Boat fishing over the new year break

Post by Steve Ward » Sun Jan 25, 2009 12:21 pm

Well it is back to work for me, the weather at esperance was near perfect over the new year and first few weeks of Jan so lots of boating to be had, the pinkies were realy on the bite.
Had a go with the new Ockta jigs, the nanies go off on them so is a good thing to try

Get many Pinkies on the Octas Steve? Would think they would love them.

They go great around this way too. :wink:

Def pack a few when you head north. Reds loves them and so do the Tuskies and Snapper. Only thing you dont seem to get on them is sharks, mother in laws and trevally so all good in my book.
