Herbert River provides another feast

After the run with Richard on Saturday I decided to take Liam to another spot on the Herbert River on Tuesday afternoon. After our usual run of about 2 hrs we arrived at our designated spot. We fished different snags trying to avoid getting in to deep, yeah right! The photo opposite suggests good water but were Liam is standing was the deepest part. It was a little interesting as we both were thinking about crocs as the evening progressed. Liam landed a nice sooty straight up, and then we both followed with a final tally of 7 sooties and 2 tarpon. Not too bad for about one and a half hours fishing. It is becoming increasing difficult to fish this system now, as the water levels have dropped, and the need for a nice pool of deeper water with water running in is becoming harder to find. Bring on the wet!
