What we try & do is fish different depths, I'll drop down to the bottom & do a couple of winds up, the missus (with the lucky rod) will drop hers just under the boat to about 10m. You can see the weight on the sounder. She tends to catch more mackerel than I do, whilst I live in hope of the elusive Bass. We got 17 Mackerel yesterday all good size, in a couple of hours. Some went on the BBQ, some in the smoker, some into mackerel rillettes, the rest went to the neighbours on the campsite.
The locals are pulling good size Bass at 6-12lb,,,,,,this time next year Rodney
