Clint is in the land of giants…Africa!

Clint: The name of the reef I fished today is called Africa and there sure where some giants roaming this continent. We hit the flats straight up and it was insane to see the fishing moving on here. We had packs of GTs shooting around in the crystal clear water chasing down our lures we managed to stick the hooks in two fish and had one of 30 plus with its bucket mouth trying to engulf brads little jelly bean lure. After the geets had moved on we turned our attention to some other beasts. There were serious packs of large Spangos moving across the flats like wildebeest do on the plains of Africa. It was insane fun cast top water lures to these fish watching them try to mow down the lures. There were Chinaman eating of the top all I can it was the craziest flats session in this part of the world I have had. To finish the day we got a 32kg GT out of a blue hole! It was a text book situation, full of bludgers there had to be a big one in there and we got him. Peter: We were out to catch a GT this morning. After fishing a few reefs the last few days and seeing water constantly changing, new pressure edges forming, drains running and bait moving. I learnt more about GTs moving and feeding patterns with rising or falling water. Today we were able to find GTs on the move during the turn of the tide across the flats which was awesome. Chinaman in numbers and Spangos chewing their heads off it was awesome fishing. With such good fishing in the flats we spent most of the day in there catching heaps of reef species and getting blown away from GTs and other monster fish. The last hour of the day was spent fishing a tiny isolated reef that went off with GTs which was a nice way to finish the days fishing and the boy’s week!! John: In The shallows was the name of the game today, after fishing a couple of edges on our way to the chosen reef, we set up for our first drift towards the busting up bludgers with about 200 birds diving on them, the reefies came thick and fast before the bludgers found our stick shads and all hell started braking loose. First we had the pack attacks of bludgers then the GTs moved in on the action as we saw some clunker fish easily 30 plus kg charging down our skipjacks and stickbaits which set the mood in the boat to extreme! Our next drift had more of the same except the bludgers had moved on but the bangers where still chasing our lures down with vigour. The rest of the day seemed a little quiet after that but we still managed to boat plenty of Red Throat with packs of them attacking 3 or 4 at a time and a few nice Trout as well as some GTs smashing but not hooking up to our offerings.   Nick: Roaming the flats this morning was the ideal way to start the day, with fish appearing from all corners to show themselves. A mixed bag of good Trout, Red Throat, Spangled Emperors, Sharkies and even the odd GT which we failed miserably to stop before getting bricked. After a short stop at the mothership for lunch we headed off in search for GTs. Searching high and low there were only a few willing to play the game. Dave was on form today raising most of the fish with his Sebile Stick Shadd 182 in the mullet colour what a deadly lure.
