Barracuda on fly

The weather looked Ok, the tides looked perfect with a high tide around 7.30am. We left to catch the tide on the inshore bays of Magnetic Island. Liam and I fished the wreck looking for some pelagic action. First fly down and a bite off for Liam! This looked good! After a few casts the probably culprit appeared, a nice barracuda. We thought, as you do, this should be a good fish.

Alas, the fishing dried to a trickle. We each landed 2 barracuda from this spot and Liam landed a small grunter trevelly. Off we went to try a wreck, but after finding it, and seeing the bait schools we thought it should be good. We cast and no luck at all! Ok, one more stop, off we went to Middle Reef. After a nice drift across the reef and one small trevelly to me, we finished for the day. So at the end of the session a couple of barracudas and a trevelly each. All in all a slow day but still we landed fish. Maybe next week!
