With the mouth been closed it seems all the big fish realized this was going to happen and left or they are not fishing, catches seem to be juveniles. We are expecting big rain this week and lefts hope the level rises sufficiently to open the mouth by its self.
Fishing very well, plenty of Snapper Cob of good sizes are caught, mainly in the early morning. A “Freezer size” Giant Guitar was landed on the main beach together with a Diamond. Other edibles caught were Spotted Grunter, Cat Face Rockcod and very few Shad. The early morning sessions are working as by evening time the wind is realy strong.
Was very bumpy over the weekend water colour was not at its best. We have taken stock of Iland Lures, I am told by a local, strip bait or half beaks work will with them, thanks for the tip Stan.
