Hang onto your hats! We are experiencing a pretty serious blow at the moment with up to 50 knots of wind gushing through our coastal village. Offshore trips are cancelled and the river fishing is rather average to say the least. Water temperatures have plummeted to around 22 degrees C and this is not conducive to good fishing. There are some bream, smaller queenfish, small jacks and grunter around but we need some calm warmer weather to re-ignite the scene. Mud crabbing has become an alternative option at the moment and catches have been reasonable.

The reef fishing was excellent until the high pressure system took effect, with large mouth nannygai on the bite and Spanish mackerel on the burst. It will be a case of waiting out a few days until the winds subside. Overall the reef fishing has been of high quality this dry season when the opportunity arrises.

Game fishing charters were doing well until the big blow and were entertaining punters with encounters of small sailfish and marlin on stand up gear. They were also having good strike rates with bustling GT's on poppers.
Until this high pressure system moves on, batten down the hatches.
