Thar She Blows

Well an interesting day!
The North Queensland Flyfishers decided to go to Hinchinbrook channel for a fish. Two boats went up channel and we decided to try the Jetty and out to Polerus Island. We lost contact with the boats up the channel but I thought I would add what happened out wide.

We visited the Jetty first and fished for a couple of hours. The game was to find the bait fish and then the predators. The plan was good but no bait fish. So instead we worked the jetty.Liam hooked up a couple of scad mackerel on slices.

Then we found a patch of fish and I landed a queenfish. Then it went very quite so we went out to Polerus Island. Beautiful day! But few fish. I managed an under size coral trout and a nice stripey but little else. It turned out to be a better day for a dive with a nice Manta Ray having a swim around the boat.

Then we left and on the way home we saw some whales. lovely beasts. There were 2 pods but the only one pod did we got within a reasonable distance to get some photos.

The mother and calf did a nice show with breaching by the calf and back floating by the female. The little one finished with some spy hopping! A great day was finished with a couple of small school mackerel on the way home.
