Weekly Report 28 Jun 12

Howdy to all fishers and crabbers from Stanage and Surrounding areas. The estuary has been crabbing well but with the cool snap it has certainly slowed. The water rats are still abundant, taking a liking to polishing off the bait before getting into the muddies and pots. The thirsty sound has proven itself once again in the cooler months with the huge bream coming alive and as per usual for the passionate fishers good sized grunter, salmon and jew fill the iceboxes. We haven't had the best weather for the reef, however for the bigger boats and younger skippers some managed to get out to the dukes and hexham group of islands, to be rewarded with grassy sweet lips, reds and a few trout. The topping came in the shape of a mackerel caught with a ganged floater.

The Road has been a bit wet, with the immediate traffic finding it muddy and slippery, however with the sun and wind has dried out nicely, reducing most of the smaller ridges n corrigation. I believe the trenches n drains are still the same, so the rule still exists slow down and drive to conditions. If you want to complain about the road....fine....just remember there are plenty of other places that fish and have tourists to live and work and have reef, estuary and muddies that have sealed roads to and fro. So best you change direction and go there instead of complaining about our part of paradise...the road is what makes this place paradise...Its the Last Fishing Frontier left in Qld close to 2 major cities. So bag up your mouth or stuff off... the area does not need you.
Until next time, take time to go fishing and crabbing
