Report 11/12/14

We are just starting to witness the build up to the wet season with the first decent electrical storm we’ve seen in quite awhile occur on Saturday night. It was a ripper which lasted a few hours and dumped copious amounts of rain in a short period. The bureau is anticipating more this coming weekend so if you happen to be out of the water always keep a roving eye across the horizon for those big cauliflower clouds forming into a storm and get off the water. As you would have seen on Saturday evening these storms are quite vicious and being on the water is the last place you would want to be.
On the piscatorial front the reef fishing efforts saw some handy results in the past week without breaking any records. According to Skipper Steve Adamson of Dragon Lady Charters the morning sessions proved to be a bit of a grind and the turn of the tide in the afternoon was when they were able to cash in. At this point they were able to secure some quality coral and bar cheek trout, large mouth nannygai and gold spot trevally. Steve said the ice box was looking a bit bare by lunch time but by the end of the day there were some nice fish for the punters to take home. He also mentioned they had a chaotic moment this week when a pair of sailfish picked up a couple of normal baits off the bottom at the same time and created a bit of pandemonium there for a bit. Unfortunately one jumped free and the other ran the line under the boat at lightening speed, it was a bit of excitement that you rarely get see on a standard reef charter.
Other than this there’s been a bit of activity along the foreshores at the break through creeks along the beaches. Blue salmon, flathead, trevally and accidental barra catches have occurred and they are taking advantage of the new food source that has become readily available. Also the run off small creeks within the rivers and estuaries have been on the money for targeting mangrove jack. There are also some nice trevally in the main parts of the system as well.
They are not expecting too much wind this weekend so morning sessions look favourable, but be aware they are anticipating northerly winds and thunderstorms to form.
