Launched from DSBC this morning for 3 hours of fishing. Water at a warm 23.7 degrees out on the 50m line and trolled north. Plenty of YFT around, a four hook-up on the way out and two more on the way back, but smallish in size of around 4kg. Should be similar conditions for the next few days.

Halco's and Rapala's 2m divers in blue-silver and purple-silver, about 20-25m behind the boat, at 9-10 kmh. That's the setup that worked for today.

Took a day off and ended up with a 8kg couta, started in very green water round the corner, where I had one pull but lost the fish after two mins when the line parted, suspect another fish took the duster :dunno:
moved to much cleaner water at No1 where I got the fish on a live mackerel.
