Weekly Report 26 May 09

Post by Brad » Tue May 26, 2009 5:21 pm

We have just experienced a brilliant run of weather with glassed out oceans and clear blue skies - picture postcard material. This allowed for plenty of
fishing adventures to take place.

Reef: despite the glorious conditions the fishing proved surprisingly a bit tougher than expected. Some days fired with others producing bits and
pieces. The coral trout are biting well following the full moon, that has been the pattern over the last two months. Other fish to consistently show
up have been large mouth nannygai and red emperor in 40m of water. Spanish mackerel are also around these schools of fish so a float rig is a must. In
20-30m of water there have been plenty of sweetlip, spangled emperor and tea-leaf trevally. Other fish to make up catches have included baldy bream,
red throat emperor, stripey and speckled scale perch.

Rivers: mud crabbing has been exceptional in the Dickson Inlet and Muddy Creek. There are quite a few good jacks and estuary cod kicking around the
snags on the banks and there are still fingermark been caught in the deeper holes with structure. Barra have slowed considerably and will do so over the
cooler months now. There are trevally and queenfish coming through on the bigger tides with nice clean water. Blue salmon have featured across our
mangroved flats and hefty flathead and the odd barra have showed up on our beaches.
