April Fishing around the Bay


Been a bit slack on the web site updates in recent months – Facebook is just too easy to use while out in the field 

 We have been doing plenty of fishing & I can honestly say we are Tuna’d out at present –

Katrina would also endorse this – And it has been great fun. Most fish have been taken using soft plastics including Squidgy flick baits & snapbacks.

The longtails have varied in size from jelly beans up to around 10kgs …. Our favourite outfit being the Shimano T-Curve Snapper spin & Stella SW 5000 with 20lb Power Pro braid.

There’s been plenty of Mac Tuna about as well – always an anti-climax when you’ve cast into a boiling patch on Longtails !

With the cooler weather we have also started looking about the creeks & straights with some nice school jew about – there’s gotta be some larger models here as well ….

Grunter are always a welcome surprise as well & tasty ……..

There has also been some great prawning over the last month & we should see the larger ones over the next few weeks before they taper off …. Nath in action

Fresh prawns & calamari Mmmmmmmmmmm

Did I mention there’s also been some mud crabs about as well ……………………

Fresh Mudcrabs & Tuna Mmmmmmmmmmm

The weather is finally coming good & the seasons are changing with cooler starts to each day now – the hardest decision from now on will be what to chase next
