march april fishing newsletter report - HBS regular Ian with a good sized GT

March/April 2022 Fishing Report and Newsletter

March was a cracking month for the team at HBFSF with some mint weather among a few windier days. A second round of flooding rains saw a huge influx of bait with big predatory fish in hot pursuit. Big longtails, golden trevally, spanish mackerel, queenfish, broad bar mackerel and more rounded up the bait. Targeting these fish saw anglers get some new PB’s and got to experience the thrill of targeting trophy size fish.

January/February 2022 Fishing Report and Newsletter

Well what a past couple of months it has been, and a bit of a breezy start to 2022 to say the least. Windy conditions saw us lose a fair few days with gusty southeasters, often strong wind warning strength, keeping us off the bay. As we move forward to March and Autumn we should see the weather settle down and transition into those cooler autumn conditions we love.

October & November 2021 Fishing Report and Newsletter

The past few months have seen some challenging conditions. Very unseasonal heavy rains and easterly wind flow for this time of year has made the pelagic scene tougher than it should be. Short term pain for long term gain will see the coming months fire up and will be better from the rains.

June & July Fishing Report and Newsletter

June and July brought some tough weather, with this winter one of the worst for wet and windy conditions for some time. We did see a couple of the nice winter glassout days but they were rare. Luckily the fishing on those days was excellent and we saw a fantastic start to our shallow water snapper season, with some big knobby’s landed.

April saw some great conditions for our guests, with glassouts and light winds for the best part of the month. May, on the other hand, brought some big south easterly blows and we lost a few days here and there to strong winds.
