Thanks guys.

@DougieK
Thank you will give it a go use to fish a bit around that area about 20-25 years ago with mixed success as never had a sounder or GPS so was always hit and miss, mostly use to get pinkies near the green marker just off speedies (little lava type reef on beach) or up near spew hill (big sand hill going out towards quarry) also use to drift from the back of foots (at San remo in towards bar when no swell, but was always only pretty small flaties)

@ Jason fish
Have a mix of braid and mono for both whiting and snapper set ups.(new to braid though)

Just standard whiting set ups nibble tip rods with spinning reels, running about 10lb line with a mix of bait holder and circle hooks size 4 and using a cocktail of piipies and squid.

Snapper set up, I think about 40lb line with 60lb mono leader size 4/0 circle hooks (just one hook, no holder hook, with Ezi rig with drum reels.

Use to fish a few times a week in a little tinny mostly around newhaven/San Remo but had no sounder and we were only just out of our teens and didnt have access to all the great info can now find online videos etc

Also use to fish a fair bit off Cowes/Red rocks area on the side of the shipping channel, had great success out there on turn of tide for snapper.

Lived up north since then including a few years on Fraser Island where i fished a few times a week from shore and in boat, so with maturity and a bit more experience have more of a grasp now on importance of equipment & bait and just fishing and ocean in general, so keen to get some of these areas of the port worked out.


@Kimtown
Yes i heard that is where the bigger flatties in numbers are found, the boat has a Garmin GPSmap 451s (colour) think about 2010 model. (haven't seen any arches yet though)
Mustad or Gamakatsu?

@Bowl

Cheers might have to do a trip out that way, had a look at the ramp at low tide yesterday impossible to launch without a 4wd the sand build up around the ramp is crazy.

Yeah need some serious lead to fish on edge of shipping channel, its like a river sometimes.
Edit :he got the flatties in 50 Meters of water in the ocean

Thanks, 50 metre line looks a bit far out from western entrance for me, long ride home if conditions turn bad and quite open stretch of water to most swells and winds, might give the 40-50 metre line out from eastern entrance a go sometime instead, looks much closer and more protected run home once in the shadow of the cape from swell and wind.
