Chloe Taylor & Tom Laurence return to the bay ….


Chloe Taylor & Tom Laurence ( ) missed out on getting any longtails during their last visit before Christmas – so we got them back up again for another week to see if we could tick them a couple of other species off their bucket list ……

The afternoon bite is often the best of the day .

We also put in some time working the flats for both longtails and queenfish on stickbaits when the sun was out ….

Tom managed to land a couple before the sharks moved in – with Chloe missing out this trip after pulling the hooks on a couple of big fish and being sharked on another couple !

Mac Tuna 

There have been some BIG mac tuna about this season !

We even came across a few longtails off the top of Big Woody one morning ..

We did a wide run out to the gutters in search of a cobia on their last day – but just couldn’t drive past longtails busting up along the way 

We even came across a school of striped tuna and Chloe dropped a lovely dolphin fish as well !

Unfortunately we didn’t come across any cobia – but Chloe did manage a little AJ 

I even managed to “whip” up this little kingfish 

We dropped a few baits on a couple of marks on the way home and scored a tasty tusky & snapper to finish off another great day on the water
