Re: Port workup

Cheers Mike, I've been out there a few times and seen a few small work ups but they move so fast lol.
Haven't been right out to the front of the island yet, I've been heading to Delaware side of Pepin and getting good results with snapper :-)
What's the fishing like out the front of the island?

Re: Early morning Pepin island stalk

Awesome thank you for the info guys. Mullet is that depth where all the boats were? Did not manage to see you, we launched from Maori pa at 5.30, where did you launch from? While at that depth do you anchor up and lay up a Berkley trail?
