Re: winter fishery

I'll find a message sent to me from BigJay that I saved some time ago. (hope that is okay Jason.....it is a bit of a "lay of the land" you sent me a couple of years ago when I was headed to Tugboat for the regatta/beerfest)

The spring/early summer is a good time off Thrasher. BigJay has fished over there a lot and also look at this website from a guide/charter based out of Silva Bay.

If you ever need a "body" to head out with ya I just got a brand new mooching set up and am good to go all the time.....rain/sleet/snow/sun!! :peace:

I'll send it to you on PM when I find it. Don't want to have all the "lurkers" floodin' your area. As far as prawning goes you can have great success, but once the commercial guys get started in June the area can get raped pretty badly. I have been involved in a regatta that sails over to Silva Bay (Tugboat Island, RVYC outstation) and we have prawned out off that area and it has been slim pickin's. You will see reports from SilverBlue that they pretty much don't waste their time prawning in the close vicinity once the commercial guys have done their part.
