November certainly flew past for us with some patchy weather making things interesting. Our guests enjoyed a range of different fishing from mac tuna and longtails through to some great flats fishing for queenfish, golden trevally and blue bustard’s. Typically this time of year we see plenty of Northerly winds making life a little difficult at times. The first half of the month saw some big blows from the north with the back end of the month seeing much better conditions.
Our run of spotted mackerel has been a little slow but fish are filtering in through the Bay. Mac tuna. Longtail tuna and golden trevally have been present around the bait with even the odd bonefish working under the tuna. On the shallow reefs cod, coral trout,golden trevally and sweetlip have been taking our offerings when conditions suited. Dropping soft plastics on light spin combo’s has been the gear of choice.
As we move into December we should see an increase in bait balls and pelagic activity with more spotted mackerel moving in. The flats up in the northern bay should also fire up with big pelagics patrolling the beaches. In the rivers threadfin salmon will be a likely target with some good reports around over the past few weeks. If you are interested in a trip with us in December we still have some dates available.
