Not sure, we are still waiting to see what the weather is doing as we are only in a small 5mtr boat but im sure there are alot of thers that are doing the same.
 
Looks good from met vuw but metservice are saying alot different???
 
whos right and whos wrong is the million dollar question.
People say if fishing was easy then it would be called catching, I say these people who say that obviously had a bad day's fishing.

Silver mares fish DQ overall length of leader and windon ok but length of windon plus lure too long I think ,230kg  plus Blue nice fish .I think there was 6 stripeys weighed today ,93,98 not sure about rest .boats were Reel mccoy ,sequel ,silver mare ,meat hunter ,extreme,Inova has a big eye onboard staying overnight will weigh tomorrow .Heaps of skippies and alberts out there .water is better colour and warmer north of middle ground ,two of the stripeys came from the hook .The impellor on my outboard went at about 9.00am this morning so am out of comp but have weighed in 4 skippies about 3 kg so maybe some money  I think there was a short billed spearfish also caught

I heard that DQ blue lost a $4000 prize plus a $50,000 club jackpot prize!!

I'm always amazed that anglers enter comps without checking their gear versus the rules!!

I don't know of any $4k prize or $50k jackpot Fishb8, possibly if this was during the 'Classic', but a Club  'Jackpot' prize if there even  is one, surely wouldn't go this early in the season. I may be wrong, but I've certainly not heard about anything like that.   This is only a Tuna Tourney, not the One Base (if you could call it that now)...

 Couldn't agree more about checking your gear. Cheers
