Ok guys, need some hands up or down on this. Looking at another boat too for the same weekend (2 days instead of 1). Do we really have enough people to fill both?

From my perspective, I'm keen for the 2 day trip. Costs more but more fishing time. If we do 1 trip, it would likely to be 2 days now. So put your hand up and lets do it!

Guys who were on the list for the first trip get first pick on coming up to the 3 day trip, but you don't have to. Other than that, put your name on which trip you want to go on.

Both trips leave from the wharf on the evening of the first day, and leave White around 1/2 pm on the 2nd.

Mate I think it only fair I withdraw its unreasonable to keep the spot open as I may become unreliable… for reasons discussed.

Just a reminder on this. We'll need to pay a deposit in the next few weeks, and by the look of things we'll only do the 2 day trip, but I'll give it another week to see if anyone wants to jump on to either.

Rusty jumped the queue and has taken 5th and 6th with Mr Jiggy ;) :inlove: . 6 was the min number required for me to confirm the dates, so I'll get a deposit off everyone in the next couple of weeks. I'll leave the other trip for another week or so, and if no one joins in for it, I'll email the guys and cancel.

Right. I'm going to cancel the one day trip, and also will be sending out my Bank Account to those who are listed so you can send the deposit.

2-4 5/0 live bait hooks (suggest Black Magic or Gamakatsu)
2-4 8/0 live bait hooks
3-4 6oz ball sinkers
3-4 8oz ball sinkers
130 pound Tough Trace
1/0 hooks
30 or 40 pound trace
Variety of swivels
Variety of small sinkers (1/2 - 4oz)
Optional 200 – 300 gram jigs
Small – medium sized trolling lures
