So, not enough boats hunting for them, Heath. Were you there today? 25 boats today. Which is odd considering they were no where to be found for the past 5 days. I was out!, I didn't find them, but they were packed in tight. Pics below. I only took the biggies.

Hi,

The prawns came on at Lamb on the turn of the tide probably for an hour. Managed 10 litres mostly mediums with some small and large ones in the mix. Perfect conditions with the wind starting to pick up about 9 am.

Cheers,

Ross

    I have never done the cheeky net before work, but it sounds like a good idea if your pulling them like that.

    I think they don't like it when its raining but a few days after they really fire.

    Thanks for the tip Rosco. Haven't been out for a while so over the weekend was planing on going to Lamb. They were there this morning. Arrived about 7.30 and they were already catching. No big number but got the bucket in an hour and a half

    They can be fabulous during rain too, Heath. One year my sounder wa on the blink and it was steady rain all day at the 2 greens. I managed a bucket in an hour just blind casting. There was only one other boat there that day. I've also heard they can be awesome just before a big blow!
    Heres to pics from today.- Frank and I managed a bucket and a half between us in one cast. It was a very short session. The sounder screen bottom lock is set to 3 metres (10 foot). The prawns were balled up to 2 metres high, just before we threw.

    Only half a bucket at Lamb this morning. Too many boats and not enough prawns to go around. Some may have done better, although I was one of the first one to give it away around 11.30 and most of the crowd were still plugging away

    Went to Nudgee this morning. Never seen so many boats out. Ended up with about 18 litres of medium to large. Hard to find them schooled up. Spent the morning casting over small broken patches with a few good casts in between.

    Looks like everyone did reasonably well!! I couldn't make it out on the weekend unfortunately but maybe during the week.

    Hi,

    I hit Nudgee at first light with club member Dale Price. Managed a car park at the ramp no problem and was out just as light broke to join the other 80 odd boats out there. Counted 15 trawlers working out a bit wider.

    I would say they had been through the area as there were no big schools to get a fast bucket but after plodding away ended up with 10 litres each of large prawns. Perfect conditions with a SSW early and dropping out to glassy conditions except for all the boat wash.

    Cheers,

    Ross
