Guides Report 14th of June

Glanny knows where they live!

Glanville: Today we had a substantially better day even though the fishing was a little tough, we struggled in the morning to get the bites. Some of the areas we were fishing looked just perfect!, Sexy looking blue holes, pressure edges, points, eddies I tried them all and never raised a snap. I decided to go somewhere out of the current to be a little different and found a shallow bay. Thought we might have a few casts to see if there was a fish sulking out the current, and there he was… a cracker of a fish came up and destroyed a skipjack half way to the boat and smoked away with drag straight into the reef, we tried a little more and couldn’t raise another snap so we decided to go give the plastics a go in some deep water in the hope of a red emperor, we found the right grounds in 45m and managed to get a couple good sized Chinaman, a giant Estuary Cod, the biggest Bar Cheek Trout I have ever seen, very unusual for them to be so far out as they both are inshore species. We also got cleaned up by a couple of good fish, looking forward to getting some plastics down there again soon. The afternoon was fairly productive and we knocked over some good GTs and a couple Mackerel on the poppers before we put the troll lures in and caught another 2 cracker GTs on the light gear and a variety of other fish. All in all an awesome day out on the water with a couple of quality fish and some unreal surface takes from GTs, definitely keeps the blood flowing!!! Peter: Great day out on the water today, the wind played the game which was nice. We set out on the search for a GT in the morning and fishing was tougher than previous days. We hooked a few and managed to boat a couple of nice size fish. We then ventured into the shallows and attacked the Gold Spots for about an hour. We also got onto some Reefies although it wasn’t fishing as red hot as usual. The end of the day was spent walking into a couple of blue holes where we had a pack attack of massive sharks. Tomorrows another day can’t wait to see what it brings our way!!! Clint: I was a very relaxed day today, the pace of the fishing was very chilled. We picked up a couple of GTs on the light tackle, Bludger Trevally were all over the shallows. After an extended lunch that including a snorkelling session. The flats once again got the better of us getting smoked by some decent fish. Looking like another fine weather day tomorrow. John: Today’s fishing was tough but fortunately we had a great group of guys who understood what it meant to earn the fish they caught. By 2pm we had boated 1 shark mackerel and not even seen a GT! With these tough times we decided to make a long run to have one last ditch effort to save the days GT effort. We were handsomely rewarded with 2 nice fish and hooking another 6 that didn’t stay connected, one of the fish actually straightened the belly swivel on the stickbait before making its way to freedom. A leisurely troll to finish found some Mack Tuna and Shark Mackeral willing to play ball, which was a nice way finish the day and hopefully we can pick up from where we left off tomorrow!
