Lew don't get hung on temps just keep towing them plastics and having a go bro cos it is believed alot of NP fish come from the Indian Ocean and South Aus Sea... versus warmer northern waters...

No worries allan ... MITE have to give it a crack in the weekend weather permitting, i would assume the plan would be drop in the (small) lures around 80m and head out and up for as long as petrol allows, will pop in an update one what we see out there
