Fly Fishing

Chasing Golden Trevalley on the Magnetic Island flats.


Enjoying one of the many beautiful beaches of Magnetic Island.

Friday 20 June 2008

The Kids had a ball

On Thursday Chris and Liam went out to our spot off Rattle Snake Island to find big swells and no bait fish.

However they persisted and started using bumper bars and slices targeting pelagic fish. It was looking pretty bad until they put a bit of pilchard down hooking up to a 52cm trevally and got onto a school landing between 20-30.

With the tide changed the Nannygai came on and they landed about 30 from 30cm-50cm, then a school of long spined snapper came on on and around 20 of them were landed around 40cm. So in all a cloudy dark morning turned into a very successful trip.

This shows that when your fishing methods appear not to be working, sometimes experimenting can make all the difference!
