West Point Mackerel

Fished today with Ward in his boat. It was my first run in the new boat, and I was very impressed. We launched from Pallerenda at about 6.30am and ran to a mark part way between the cape and West Point. Not much showing on the mark, we gave it a couple of drifts before heading to West Point.

On arrival we had trouble finding our mark. Wards GPS coordinate was a little off, and after doing circles for about 10mins we were almost ready to give up when we got a show. As has been for the last couple of trips there was heaps of bait. We drifted a couple of time and I quickly had a 60cm doggie on board. This was followed pretty quickly by a throw back. As the wind built the drift quicked so we decided to anchor. Second go and we were right over the clouds of bait. But no more mackerel to be seen. We played there until about 9.30am and headed back to the beach.

Its a shame the ramp at Pallerenda isn't more suitable. Its a quick trip to run to West Point for a mornings fish!
