Red Emperor country, search for small rises only a metre or two high with some bait, doesn’t need to be a lot.

About 40nm NE of the bar, search around this area as it is the start of the drop off, some high country around 40m dropping off around it to 70m and beyond and good drift for a few kilometres. Out there anything is possible, but sharks claim their share of good fish.
