There’s no doubt we experienced a brilliant run of weather for quite sometime now which has been idyllic for getting out on the water.
Many have been taking the opportunity to head to the reef just prior to the next bout of reef closures which began yesterday and go through till Sunday. Reports overall have been a mixture with probably the best reports coming from locals who have done particularly well on the ‘reds’ at night time. The large mouth nannygai have been the main target in these instances and have come on the bite feverishly for short bursts of action. Quite often they will pick a route which they will travel around several times in a certain time frame and that’s when if you are in the right spot you’ll cash in as they pass by. Quite often there’s reef jacks, trevally, spangled emperor and others which do a similar passage. During the day the fishing has been patchy with a smattering of good sized coral and bar cheek trout around, the gold spot trevally have remained consistent and there’s still numbers of Spanish mackerel hovering around those deep pinnacles.
The black marlin game fishing has been rolling along nicely with still plenty of big fish being caught and released on our local grounds. The bite hasn’t been red hot according to sources but most operators are still managing a marlin per day. The action is still occurring right up from the Ribbons down to the Jenny Louise Shoals.
The rivers and creeks have been tougher during the middle parts of the day with the low light periods producing better numbers of grunter, mangrove jack and fingermark.
Not much is going to change in the weather department in the next few days so with the reef closures on a river fish is on the cards or a day of trolling lures for some mackerel with the breeze blowing through your hair sounds like a pretty good idea.
