Exploring Gladstone Offshore
Over the last couple of months we have been exploring the Gladstone Reefs and islands fishing for pelagic s and reef species using stick baits. First trip was to Hummocky Island chasing Queenfish, tuna and GTs. The next few reef trips we fished the reefs and Islands around the Gladstone area, Wistari, Broomfield, Masthead, Sykes and Northwest with many firsts and PB’s caught. During the trips Icaught my first Cobia and Flowery cod as well as getting new PB’s that where Coral Trout, Chinaman, Spangled Emperor and Coronation Trout.
The gear used during the trip was my Zeikel Slayer 6kg – 10kg on a stella 8000 and a twin power 8000 on a terez 15lb – 30lb. lures used where westins, nomads and zereks.
