Weekly Report 23 May 11

Post by Brad » Tue May 24, 2011 7:45 am

Reef: A wide variety of fish are biting well at the moment. The more notable species in decent numbers are large mouth nannygai, golden trevally, coral trout and a few nice mackerel are starting to turn up. The mackerel are due to hit their straps anytime now. Conditions have been fair in recent times yet we are always wary of the high pressure systems rolling across the country down south as they tend to cause a strong south-easterly blow along our coastline. All in all we are amongst the best time of year to be going reef fishing on the Great Barrier Reef.

Rivers/ Creeks: Barra are becoming harder by the day as water temperatures drop. Jacks and fingermark have remained consistent and we are seeing our winter species kick into gear including bream, grunter, flathead, sickle fish. There have been some cracking one metre queenfish caught using live baits at river mouths on an incoming tide. The mud crabbing has been superb on the bigger tides.
