With the winds finally abating and temperatures rising they finally started to show signs of playing the game this week.. We caught fish both Wednesday and Thursday.
Bait has been extremely difficult to get. Decent size mullet are near on impossible to find and lures are not attracting any attention at all. We have had to resort to using small mullet putting two or three on a hook to get some attention.
Thursday saw the first signs of some of those nice solid build up Barra With Greg Nunn landing a nice fat 79cm fish and daughter Amelia landing a 76cm fish.A few other solid fish were lost through the day with none more spectacular than a fish well over a meter that Greg hooked.The big girl peeled off over half a spool of line before completing some spectacular acrobatics and then throwing the hook.
All in all we finally have some light at the end of the tunnel and now hopefully thing really start to hot up.
While the fish have been tough the crabs this year have been exceptional and there are still plenty about but as is usual for this time of year the Jennys are starting to out number the Bucks but they are full .of meat.
