Rowley Shoals Fishing Videos In The Spread

The shelf atoll of Rowley Shoals is a remarkable fishing destination. These are atolls that sit atop the continental shelf 150 miles off the west coast of Australia in the Indian Ocean. If you look at the seafloor topography image provided by Hilton's Realtime Navigator, you can see what a dynamic marine environment awaits. There is so much insane structure here. The fishing should be off the charts.


The In The Spread team is headed here this week to explore the reef fishing and offshore fishing, as we team up with the Reel Teaser charter operation. Prior to this venture, there was not very much coverage for this part of the world, in the way of satellite imagery maps. Tom Hilton, creator of http://www.hiltonsoffshore.com, decided we needed fish finding maps to measure altimetry, SST or sea surface temperature, wind, waves, chlorophyll. Tom and I will be utilizing his service to quickly find the most fishable areas. His satellite imagery is the absolute best in the industry, so I am confident we will find the blue marlin, black marlin, yellowfin tuna, sailfish and wahoo we will be looking for. This will be a first for the part of the world, so I know Tom is excited and so is Ross Newton, owner of the Reel Teaser.


We will be filming here for a week, so we should be coming back with some fantastic new fishing videos. We will be targeting all the usual offshore fishing species, as I mentioned before, and the legendary reef donkeys like GT's or giant trevally, dogtooth tuna, coral trout, emperor fish and several other species.

    Florida Gulf Coast Best Baits

    I believe that the fish that I'm targeting are used to eating them and they are easy to catch. I use a small hook that I keep on a spare rod just for this purpose. A small piece of shrimp is all it takes to get them.

    Chunking for Tuna | Fishing Videos

    You can catch 200 lb tuna on 60 lb fluorocarbon, if that's what it takes. The battle will just be longer. When using the lighter leader, make sure the drag is not set too tight and take you time with the fish. Do not try and horse the fish to the boat. Be patient, unless there are sharks, then do whatever is required.

    Best Months to Fish Florida's Gulf Coast

    If there are two months on Florida's Big Bend that I tell anglers are the best ones to fish, they are April and October. These two months have similarities because the water temperatures are best for inshore and offshore species.
