Smaller Tides….BIG FISH!!
The last week fishing Cairns Inlet started out with heavy rain! One morning we donned the rain gear even before the charter began!
It poured the whole session and even the pockets of our rain coats were full of water. Still almost 30 degrees and the fish were biting, everyone was smiling.
Akari outfished her man Laury and after several awesome jumps landed a beauty Queenfish on a live mullet.
Tony from Sydney hooked up to a couple of acrobatic Tarpon and since he was flying out on the day he was not concerned that Tarpon are not the best eating.
Team Sweden took on Team Australia in a friendly live bait fishing competition a couple days ago. It went neck and neck until HEINRICH and MAX landed a very respectable Queenie that ensured the win for the smiling Swedes!! The Swedish Queenfish was later introduced to the Aussi BBQ!
In general the rains gave Trinity Inlet a much needed flush. The live bait was a little hard to find,but putting in the extra effort paid off and made for good fishing.
Cheers and Tight Lines
