Grant Ashwell is a straight gangster :D I was showing that pic of him with the marlin on his lap to anyone in my vicinity for a while. Thanks for the info, I'm fairly sure I'll be peddling something before the year is out. Good luck tomorrow Mark, I'm envious you're headed out.

Thanks Squidley,
Your best wishes must have helped. There were 4 of us lined up out there Tuesday night and we all got some keepers.
Regards,
Mark

Was nice to catch up with again Mark and to meet Rob C and Murphysegg (Jason).
If anyone wants a snapper cleaned in no time flat, Rob is now the man ;-) :lol:
A couple of photos from the night's fish.

Wonderful result, everyone gets fish :). Looks like it was a nice evening too. Maybe it'll still be stirred up on Sunday morning and I'll go then.

nice effort indeed. couple nice pan sized ruggers.

might be a rather stupid question but its an honest one.. Are them reef systems you can see (roughly 300m off the jetty) the glenelg tire reef, or is that somewhere completely different.

300 m directly west of the jetty are some large concrete blocks, strangely enough they are called the blocks. Clever name really. :lol:
There are reefs south of the jetty though.

The Glenelg tyre reef is about 5 kms off shore - so you are not seeing that Brad.

Thanks for the answer guys, do people kayak to the blocks often?? I'd think the structure may entice some nice fish!

Approx 5 km...WHAT!!!!! Are you serious! Do people kayak that? Wow that truly is ballsy

I do not know of anybody that has gone to the tyre reef in a yak and I wouldn't recommend it personally!

As for the blocks that are only 2 or 300m west of the jetty, many of us experienced yakkers have been there on a regular basis.
Note the experienced - Kayaking can be dangerous if you are not adequately prepared, please do not venture out too far on your own if you are a newbie!
There are plenty of guys on the forum that will show you the ropes and accompany you if you are new to yakking.
Just ask for a partner in the SA trips section of this forum until you gain some experience.

Nice, looks to be 50 or more. Today I got one on an HB (undersize), one on a circle hook bait line (undersize), and one on a nuke that was juuust sort of but not on 38 so it went back, so I guess nuke wins :)

Did you find your pilchards?
