Weekly report 25 Mar 10

Post by Brad » Thu Mar 25, 2010 4:14 pm

Frustration reigns supreme as the bad weather continues to impede on many fishing opportunties. The rivers and creeks have been really the only viable option of late and from reports filtering through there is enough interest to consider taking up the challenge. There have been a few barra being caught along various stretches of our systems with smaller models biting well way upstream taking lures and the bigger verions are being caught closer to river and estuary entrances. The key to latching onto a big one at the moment is using live bait on an incoming tide and preferably on dusk. In difficult conditions you at least need the wind and tide running in the same direction. If you are just after general entertainment, using prawns and strip baits will see you entice a variety of fish such as mangrove jack, bream, grunter, sickle fish and estuary cod which are all very active at the moment.

If only the weather would come good because there was a brief window offered early in the week and the reef fishing fired right up. For a day or two there were solid reports of large mouth nannygai and coral trout coming on the bite in a major way. Other species in tow included stripeys, sweetlip and trevally varieties. Sea temperatures have dropped and the fish appear to be out of their hypnotic mode. It's anyone's guess as to when the next spell of good weather is due, but if it does arrive be sure to take advantage. Better and more consistent catches are definitely ahead.In the immediate future target a barra or two and wait for the opportunity to head offshore.
To get amongst the serious action on offer give us a call ............
