Peter finds plenty of variety!

  Peter: We left the boat this morning with variety on our minds. Straight from the get go we drifted into some awesome flats territory and smashed the Red Throat and Trout. We then progressed on and jumped onto a sand cay with the light rods. It was great to stand on solid ground with the wind being up. We managed to catch a few Lippers and Trout of the beach which was pretty cool. After lunch the tide was low enough for us to venture into a blue hole on foot. The GT rods were deployed into the hole that was completely surrounded by exposed reef. We saw 1 and lost another nice GT to the reefs edge which was pretty unlucky but the boys didn’t seem to mind, all they seemed to be focused on was the picturesque surroundings in which we were fishing. After our little adventure the guys were keen on catching a Spannish so the trolling rods were deployed. It was literally 5 mins when we had a double hook up on our hands. Fish one was a Spannish and the other was a Sharkey Mackerel. We kept trolling and picked up a variety of fish from Gold Spot and Bludger Travalley, Mack Tuna and another Spanish that went 20kgs. The remainder of the afternoon was spent on the shallows and it was consistent action catching reefies in numbers. Long Nose Emperor were some of the quality size fish including some horse size Gold Spots. What an amazing day, it just goes to show the action doesn’t stop with the wind. Bring on tomorrow I say yeeeow!!!   Nick: The breeze started to freshen up this morning and got stronger as the day progressed which made some of the open ledges very uncomfortable but there were still fish present. Again fish were sighted all through the day but were for some reason not staying connected. The next battle was to not get busted off which was another hurdle we had to cross with reef and tail scoots beating us on more than one occasion. Anchoring up in a lagoon for lunch away from the swell was a great way to relax and sort out all the gear that was worn torn from the morning session. The run in tide in the arvo saw some slightly more aggressive fish which was nice to see. Let’s hope the wind eases a little tomorrow and gives us a break.
