Hey guys, Been a while since I have both fished the Seaway much and had a computer to use lol.
I went out last Saturday afternoon down to the Trag grounds and fished into the night.
Just before dark I got smashed by what I can only assume were big arsed Cobia.
I was fishing 50pld brain on my Deablo with a near locked drag floating both a Live Tailor & a huge Slimmie.
First fish to go was the slimmie Didnt even notice the balloon go just heard my drag screaming once the fish had already reached the bottom, busted of fairly quickly lol.
The second fish under the balloon was a Tailor just legal,
About 10 minutes we seen the balloon pull & the reel started screaming,
Big powerful runs & big head shakes
I loaded the drag up to around 20kg & that oly pissed it off more.
Thought I had it after a few minutes till it decided to take a last run at the bottom eventually getting me in the reef.
Trag are every where, within an hour between 3 of us we had 20 fish, not noticing we had gone over our limit as we were throwing all fish under 42cm.
So we cooked up a quick feed there and then on the boat, Freshly caught and cooked Chilli Trag, yummmm.
A few other reef fish along with 5 Tailor around the 45cm mark.
Tried drifting a few livies in the Seaway on Sunday afternoon, but the boat is simply to big to get in close enough to the wall, The westerly wind howling & the incoming tide made it hard enough too.
Fished the deep hole out the front of Seaworld a few nights that we have come back in.
One night I hooked a Jew on a bait jig that had taken a liking to my hooked Pike,
Chucked the other half that was left back out & got seriously sharked. Good run, but bitten off.
Got sharked about 4 times that night & hooked a keeper bait board lol.
Taken a few good feeds of Whiting in the seaway over the past few weeks on live beach worms on nights we’ve stayed inside the Seaway.
Other than that just been smashing the Trag on every trip.
