Unfortunately the winds continue to hound the coast and I've never experienced a season like it before. There are very tiny gaps of good weather and literally you need to wake up and make an educated guess if you decide to offshore. The conditions appear good until lunch time and then she blows. In saying this The Joker game boat bagged 12 mackerel on the troll before lunch time very recently so the gamble is worth it. They also mixed in a bag of coral trout and other reef species to see out the windy afternoon period. It is apparent that the reef scene is of high quality and we can't wait to hit it seriously on a calm day.

Inshore, the rivers and creeks are hot and cold and working the turn of the tide is best. Quality bream and grunter are prime, mixed in with a few smaller queenfish and trevally. At night the tarpon and steel back salmon are eagerly hording and smashing the live bait schools into corners.

On another note, the local mud crab scene has gone up a notch. In two hours from four pots we scored 18 mud crabs with four legal bucks. The others were just under a touch in size, including some jennies. They are full of meat and well worth a chew at the end of a day.

Please stop the high pressure systems and bring on some calmer weather!
