Got a week off next week, so I'm off on a road trip.
How has the fishing been of late? Thinking I'll be paddling around either Cable or Abel.
Probably both.
Cheers.

pretty varied. the odd brim getting picked up surfcasting. depends who you talk to and the size of their engine. big boats recon 35-40m. smaller boats recon near the 20m mark. i recon 4-7m same as all year round.
water quality been hit n miss due to overhead irrigation.

popped out last fri 6-9pm between me n the otha fulla picked up brim, ky, carrots,cudas,eels sharks n the motha of all red cod 60+cm :swear: :swear:

good luck
