Hi everyone, Easter has been and gone and the school holidays are in half over, so now is a good time to get out on the water. With the last month or so seeing so much rain, not a lot of people are getting out there to wet a line. The crabbing has been fantastic, especially mud crabs in the upper reaches of Ningi Creek, Elimbah and Coochin. Jen caught some really nice ones in Ningi Creek. Out off Woorim has seen several long-tail Tuna chasing baitfish, also the reef, out off the third lagoon has been producing some nice Golden Trevally. Some great gutters are forming along Woorim beach as well. Walking these gutters with some small hard-bodied lures like the Atomic Crank 38, {which we stock} are producing some good Bream and Flathead, it’s also a great way to spend a day. The ripples down at Pacific Harbor are starting to see some nice Snapper, fresh Squid, either whole or cut into long strips is doing the trick! Evidence is shown here by Dagsey with some good 55 to 65 cm specimens. The Avon wreck has seen plenty of good Bream and Flathead as well. Floating fresh prawns and Hardiheads are producing some great fish so it’s also definitely worth a try around the mangrove islands near there too. With the fresh water coming into the system, the prawns have moved into the canals as several Big Eye Trevally are chasing them. Anglers have been using surface lures like the bassday, sugapen and atomic poppers, these have been the best choice. Anyway, that’s all, for now, relax and wet a line hopefully you get out to catch a fish.
