Have had a very big week of fishing with great weather and a huge variety of different fish. A standout would be last Tuesdays evening trip where we located a huge school of Pearl Perch which were constantly on the bite. We kept a enough for a good meal for everyone on board and released plenty back into the water. Crabbing has also been fairly productive this past week with most people usually able to take home a couple. Give us a ring or email to book in your next Top Catch charter!!
Top Catch Charters have now moved to their great new home at The Wharf Marina, right next door to Underwater World. We are now situated on the commercial wharf right in front of the Australia Zoo whale watching vessel. Come and check us out and say g’day if you are in the area.
Last weekend we had our Barra Jacks fishing charter where we headed out to the banks for a full day trip. Fishing was steady with plenty of Tuskfish and some nice Snapper taken. Barra Jacks store owner, Geoff came along and had a great day, helping out and telling some tales as well as landing a few nice fish. Crabbing was tough and were cleaned out by the turtles and possibly some rogue Cobia.
We also ran out on Tuesday for a full days charter where the conditions were excellent and fishing was red hot! A large variety of good quality fish were caught including a big Brassy Trevally, Amberjack, Green Jobfish, Diamond Trevally and plenty more. We also took home 5 great Snapper around the 4 to 7kg mark plus some good size Pearl Pearch. As everybody on board the boat had a nice feed of fish plenty that were caught throughout the day were safely released. Had much better luck with the crabbing also with the trays loaded with large Spanner Crabs.
