Well the winter season is now over what a great season for HBFSF. Some great captures and memories with our guests making it one of the best winters yet. A big thanks to all our guests who joined us over the winter season!

August saw some good fishing once again with big cobia being a highlight. Snapper, golden trevally, longtail and mac tuna were also about in good numbers. We also had some great fishing for the elusive Bonefish with guests enjoying the thrill of landing something fairly rare to Australia’s East Coast.

Hiro takes out August's catch of the month award with this big cobia witch engulfed his soft plastic. Visiting from Japan he was wrapped with this big beast his biggest fish to date. Great fish Hiro a pleasure to guide you.
With September comes warmer water temps, inshore reefs will start to fire for golden trevally, cod, painted sweetlip, grass sweetlip and coral trout. Working soft plastics over theses reefs will see some fun light tackle fishing.
Flathead will also be a worthy target over the flats with spring seeing the bigger models becoming active. Flathead are always a great species to target on those windier days when the bay is too hard to fish effectively.

Regular guest Kerry with a flathead on fly.
The next month will see longtail and mac tuna begin to work smaller bait on the surface. Small slugs down to 15 g will be the norm when the eye size bait arrives.This will make for some great surface fishing with school and spotted mackerel also giving anglers a buzz. If you are interested in some sportfishing over the coming months please be in contact with us for rates and dates
This big cod caught by Hiro in August was released, epic fish.
Big Cobia are a highlight for August.
