Mat’s big red emperor
Hi everyone. Well it’s been a long time coming but finally a nice spell of weather and some great fishing to go along with it.
The colder temperatures have started producing some quality snapper and whilst the bite has only been short before they switch off, plenty of fish have been caught in that session.
All other species have been in good numbers as well, along with some cracker Red Emperor and Pearl perch. Along with quality snapper on the closer reefs sweetlip, Moses perch and cod also have been in good numbers.
Still a few mackerel hanging about for those liking a bit of arm stretching. In the straits, flathead have still been productive along with squid, especially around the full moon phase.
The beach finally seems to be recovering a little and some nice gutters are starting to form again, so hopefully some tailor will start showing up in better numbers with the cooler water.
Till next month, cheers, Mat
