Roonies Camp Out

Author picture

Armed with some new marks and with the weather set to perfect we decided to head up to Roonies for an overnight trip with the girls .

Checked a couple of spots until we marked fish ,1st drop both Eleasha & Katrina where on – I then spent the next half hour taking fish off ,re-rigging or re-positioning the boat for another drift

The snapper where on the chew – mostly around 50cm on average , with a few better ones thrown in.Eleasha also caught her first emperor – longnose I think ?

It was red hot fishing leading up to dark but quietened off quickly once the light was gone.

We anchored off the beach up near the lighthouse in perfect conditions – Accommodation on “Gadget” was pretty comfy

The morning bite was even better than the previous afternoon – with some monumental wipeouts

Eleasha put in a big effort on one unseen critter for an hour & a half before pulling the hook – big cobe I re coned 

This was later followed by more wipeOuts !

It was pretty hot fishing – went through 6 packs of GULP’s
