Report 25/1/19

Hi everyone with the long weekend ahead of us the winds will be up but the fish should be on the chew in the creeks and rivers.

Creeks, Rivers & Beaches
With good reports lately of nice prawn in the creeks there should be plenty of fish also in the systems taking advantage of this and feeding on them. Jacks and the odd quality grunter seem to be the talk at the moment with some nice fishing willing to take both prawn lure imitations like the Zerek and Ecooda live Shrimps and live prawns if you can get your hands on some. The best option to catch prawns is to use a cast net around the drains and gutters as the tide drops out. It is also well worth throwing in a few crab pots as the reports have been good lately. If we get any more rain it will only increase the crab and prawn catches over the weekend.
Jaya had a great trip recently catching her biggest whiting to date while fishing the Ross.

Although there hasn’t been huge amounts of rain to really get the water pumping over the weirs there has been enough to get a few big Barra interested with some nice metre plus fish being landed in recent days. The full moon is great time to flick a few surface lures around the weed edges in Ross River during the twilight hours. Large paddle tail soft plastics are also great options this time of year. Don’t forget if you are fishing the Weirs you do need a SIPs Permit.

Offshore & Bay
It is just becoming a copy of the week before and the week before that and so on once again the conditions forecast this weekend up around the 20 knots there isn’t much chance of getting offshore. It might be a good weekend to get yourself set for the Barra season opening in just over a week’s time.
The weather has to change soon let just hope it is sooner rather than later

Not much to report this week with the weather conditions. Hopefully next week there will be a window of weather to get out and chase a few fish. Once again remember it’s very important to be aware of our surrounds, it’s essential now that you cover up face to toe as the very real risk of Marine Stingers is ever present, a Rashy or 1.5mm wetsuit is sufficient. Remember all, if you are heading out, be careful, look out for one another and never take more than you need.
