Dan with a dolphin fish
Well we have had quite a few trips over the last month with good returns most days.
The early snapper hit we had last month didn’t last long as they were gone a couple of days later, we must have been lucky.
One of our last trips out yielded a good catch of spotty mackerel and topped up with some nice reefies that included squire, moses and pearl perch, parrot, scarlet sea perch and sweetlip from the close reefs.
Trips out to the wider grounds have yielded really good catches of parrot, mainly drifting, gold spot wrasse, coral trout, hussar, moses perch, squire, cobia, dolphin fish, and a few pearlies.
Over the last two weeks it has been maintenance time as the strong Southeasters have kept us in Port, but as I write they are now abating.
‘Til next month- enjoy your fishing.
