Finally some great weather & Some snapper!


With our fantastic Signature 485 sf now SOLD – so you don’t have to ask me twice if I want to hitch a ride until our new boat project is finished ! With some great weather finally forcast I jumped at the offer to have a fish with local sportfishing guide Tri ( ) ..

I have been experimenting with the Shimano Lucanus jigs a fair bit this last season and continually surprised at how effective they can be – This cracking gold spot likes them too !

Great looking fish and go hard !!

As the afternoon wore on we managed to find a few snapper with Tri landing this beatiful fish !

I manged to finish the session off with another quality fish on my old favourite Squidgy Wriggler in Glo ! 

It was a great afternoon and I’m sure I will need to encourage Tri to have a few more “Guides days Off”  

How Good Is Hervey Bay !
