Re: Ashmore Reef
Sorry I can't help you but as it is a fairly popular cruising destination
for our Indonesian neighbours, perhaps you could try an Indon Fishing
Forum or similar.
More seriously, it is an exposed spot but well used during the dry season and to be avoided during the wet but I don't have first hand experience.
