Finally some rain!
Not the kind of rain we are used to for this time of year, but some welcome rain regardless.
Some prawns showed up on the low tides and definitely helped the fishing success rate. Plenty of live herring and sardines were about for easy cast netting.
Fishing with live prawns can be hard work, as they are often simply chewed off by the voracious ‘’Pickers’’.
A few Fingermark over 50cm, a number of similar size Gt’s and an assortment of Grunters were the main catch. The best fish landed in the last week ( a couple of small Barra were dropped) was a 75 cm Queen Fish on a live herring.
A good sized Queenie is a great fighter, quite often jumping and leaping more then a Barra of similar size!
The continued forecast for more rain,and the very large incoming morning tides means we should see some solid results fishing the next few mornings.
