Weekly Report 14 Dec 11

Post by Brad » Wed Dec 14, 2011 7:44 am

Warm and sultry days have been the order of the day making low light periods the better times to wet a line for more action and making it that bit more comfortable. River: tarpon, queenfish, trevally have been active in the deeper holes with jacks, fingermark and incidental barra quite aggressive amongst the snags and mangrove edges. Middle of the day is very inactive with the better results happening early morning, on dusk and into the evening. Reef: hot fishing some days, quiet the next. The variable winds have not helped but with a forecast of more southerly breezes this will assist greatly. There's been some big fish caught however including large mouth nannygai, red emperor, reef jack, coral trout, trevally and Spanish mackerel. Mainly quality not quantity is what to expect at this time of the year.

Game: surprisingly the odd marlin is still being caught with the sailfish starting to make a presence. Yellowfin tuna, wahoo and dolphin fish are being caught along the shelf. Inside the reef there are massive schools of northern bluefin and mack tuna to have a crack at. If you are visiting Port Douglas over the school holidays be sure to book ahead to avoid disappointment.
