With the fine conditions the past few days plenty of anglers have been hitting the shelf for a deep drop. Ed Richardson and Rhooky took the Seacruiser 7400HT across to Port Macdonnell recently for a good mixed bag of gemfish and school shark.

Barrels continue to be encountered off Portland this week and we should have more reports following the full moon. The barrels have been caught in 40-70m of water.
