Weekly Report 27 Mar 11
Posted: Tue Mar 29, 2011 9:11 pm
It's been great weather up this way and the fishing has been above par for this time of year. We are seeing some very impressive reef catches of nannygai, red emperor and coral trout. Results are what you would expect to see in our cooler months when the fishing is at its optimum. The large mouth nannygai are of gigantic proportions mostly around the 8-10kg mark. There are reports of keg sized yellowfin tuna on the continental shelf and present great angling for those partaking on a light tackle game fishing charter. Inshore we have northern bluefin tuna on the rampage harassing the abundance of bait across our inshore reefs and is providing a lot of fun for the small boat brigade. In our rivers and creeks the barra are on the bite with the rains easing, and there are good catches of mangrove jack, fingermark and blue salmon as well. All in all we are seeing some exceptional fishing at the moment and the coming month should be explosive on all fronts.
