Weekly Report 14 Jun 11

Post by Brad » Wed Jun 15, 2011 3:29 pm

The weather pattern over the last month was not our typical winter scene with some odd high pressure systems rolling across the country. The nights were certainly refreshingly chilly and the days on the water were bordering on good to just bearable most of the time. We haven't seen a string of really nice days on end or even a run of strong wind warnings which can shut us down for days on end. The pendulum swayed in between the extremes so it meant we spent a lot of time on the water. This gave us a good look at what was biting on the reef and for the majority of times the fishing was quite good. We caught solid numbers of big large mouth nannygai, saw quite a few really quality red emperor at times and the coral trout began to bite nicely in the shallower waters which was good when it was a bit rougher.

Other species to put a stain on the lines included slatey bream, sweetlip, trevally species and stripeys. It was pretty stock standard reef fishing overall for the winter months which equates to some pretty handsome fishing. The mackerel are just coming on the bite as we speak and there have been some handy Gt's caught on the poppers over the last few weeks. River fishing remains patchy with queenies, bream, grunter and trevally providing some action. Mud crabbing remains superb.

enjoyed reading the report, i am going to be in Port Douglas in a weeks time and hope to do some land based fishing.
Wondering if you have any reports on any activity in recent weeks. Hoping to try the rock area in the north area of the park and also the southern end of the beach. Any idea how they are fishiing at present?
