After days on end of blustery conditions, the wind is gradually slowing down allowing boat activity to continue.
In the rivers and creeks big morning tides have made things a challenge however best results have occurred at the very bottom or the very top of the tide when the current slows to a stand still. Grunter, mangrove jack, fingermark, small giant trevally and small barra have been the most consistent catches. The afternoon tides have been quite messy as large volumes of water escape our systems. As the weather calms and water clears one would expect the queenfish to return with vengeance.
On the reefs fishing has been more than a challenge trying to anchor correctly in lumpy conditions. With big tides this has compounded the situation and results have been mediocre. Coral trout, sweetlip, cod species and spangled emperor are the best catches. As calmer weather returns the fishing will only improve.
It is a difficult time of year to predict as we wind up the tail of the wet season. One thing is assured and that is when the weather comes good the fishing is cracking.
