Went out for a half day trip on Saturday afternoon where the water was still a little bit lumpy but didn’t effect the fishing to much. Tuskfish were once again the main course on the menu with plenty being caught around the 1 to 2.5kg mark. Sunday we had excellent conditions and took Anthony and his family out for a full day trip to the barwon banks. Svetko also joined us and brought one of his mates along. The fishing was steady with plenty being caught. The boys got onto some nice Tuskies plus some good size Moses Perch before being bust off by something big. Possibly a couple of Yellowtail Kingys swimming by. On the way home there was still plenty of action with whales being spotted breaching everywhere and also dolphins playing in the boats wake. The crabbing was fairly average and can always be a bit tricky to find this time of the year even though we had a good haul of big size crabs the day before. Gives us a ring to make a booking and make the most of this lovely weather.
Been a busy couple of weeks and a bit slow on my reports but this will bring us up to date.We have had a number of charters and some great fish landed.The highlights have been the Barra Jacks evening trip we did out to the banks,the fishing was steady without being spectacular but conditions were perfect and Ben and James from Barra Jacks kept us entertained as well as showing us some new tackle,we might make these a regular event and I recommend them to anyone.The Snapper have been appearing in increasing numbers on the Caloundra 9 & 12 mile reefs and we landed 12 nice size fish on one charter including a 10kg monster, but the highlight fish of the past fortnight has to be the snodger 7 kg coral trout landed by Dirk, a visitor from Germany who didn’t speak much English but managed to convey his feelings about landing this excellent fish.Have a look at this fish on our gallery page, its awesome!.
The snapper are around in good numbers and we have got some great marks ,so if you would like to come out and get amongst them give us a call.
