Default BOLTONS REEF

Went out to Boltons on wednesday. Used the marks from this site, no problems. Now I know it is a large reef, around the size of 2 football fields. But where is the gps mark we have within those fields, i.e. middle, north end, ect?


Howard.

Howard - Boltons is relatively flat with no major pinnacles [that I have found anyway] and with the volume of coastal sand drift - what may be the edge one month will not necessarily be the edge a bit down the track - I've had best success out there when drifting onto the reef from the desert, with the action happening right on the edge - unless you want SB's, RRC's and wrasse.

Thanks George,
We drifted from just south of the mark to about 1 km north a few times. The whole area was featureless, we managed 2 jackets and 2 flatties, a slimie and a yakka.
42 to 44 meters of water but apart from the fuzzy readings on the sounder which I think were the jackets, there was nothing.
Was far too rough for me to play with the sounder!

Howard.

Cuttlefish, xos Slimies and crapfish are all I have got there in a half dozen attempts.

At midnight in the cold and frosty sky,
And where around The Overflow the reed beds sweep and sway
To the breezes, and the rolling plains are wide,
The man from Snowy River is a household word today,
And the stockmen tell the story of his ride.

Yeh I only tend to fish Boultons for slimeys, they tend to hold up well over there in summer. We used to catch trag there when I was younger.
