Weekly Report 10 May 12

Post by Brad » Thu May 10, 2012 8:00 pm

It's been an inconsistent start to the onset of the of the dry season. Some days are superb and others are very patchy.
Reef: the best days have seen the nannygai on the bite in solid numbers. Although there is the odd thumper amongst them, the majority have been just legal in size. Spangled emperor are bobbing up in better numbers and the red emperor are slowly coming on the bite. Finally some Spanish mackerel have just started appearing and they have been long overdue. The coral trout are reasonably consistent and mostly just plate size.

Rivers: the odd barra is still looming around but as the cooler days kick in they'll become a tad harder to entice. They are not far away from entering into their winter slumber. There are smatterings of trevally and smaller queenfish to contend with on the incoming tides. Pikey bream are hitting their straps and will keep the kids entertained around the harbour and jetties. A few nice mangrove jack have been registered amongst the mangroves and been partial to strips of mullet.
