Fly Fishing

Chasing Golden Trevalley on the Magnetic Island flats.


Enjoying one of the many beautiful beaches of Magnetic Island.

Saturday 8 November 2008

Mackerel from the Beacons

Well the last competition for the Baptist Club. I took Christopher and Liam out for the final fish for the club season. We thought we were going out to the Shark Shoals area off Magnetic Island. We found when we left in the morning the wind was still up and the sea a little uncomfortable. So we headed out but only got out as far as the last beacon off Magnetic Island! We spotted some fish on the sounder and we thought we would have a look. As the fly rod was still tucked away to be safe in the conditions we all dropped a metal slice down. An interesting effect, we had the metals slices down for a few seconds and we had fish in the boat in less. After 3hours and approximately 30 fish later we thought we should stop! We landed and released most and kept 10 for eating and the competition. Both Chris and Liam had a great fish and landed the Lions share, Liam won our private battle. Liam also landed a nice golden trevally and Christopher a nice black tipped reef shark!
