Early days you could pick up a feed of gars on any of the whiting/squid grounds as they would just be hanging around the boat. Now he can't find a school for love nor money in the bay.

A mate up at lakes reckons he frequently gets a few around the boat when offshore chasing gummies in about 20m.

They always pop up at night under lights in WPB

I just net them though lol

Was out the other night on WP having a Squid up on Quail Bank for some bait. Lights on water. Heaps of them at the back of the boat. Never fished for them myself, but thought it was cool to see.
