Fly Fishing

Chasing Golden Trevalley on the Magnetic Island flats.


Enjoying one of the many beautiful beaches of Magnetic Island.

Saturday 16 May 2009

Winds up

I went for a quick trip this morning out to the beacons believing the met forecast. Well it seems it was both right and wrong! I fished the beacons in the channel to a forcast of 15kts and a nice sea. It was very difficult to hold the marks and really only one drop on the fly per pass. No touches and little baitfish showing. The 2 other boats that worked the mark with me had little luck as well. I thought I would go home as inshore was out. But what happens as I approached the mainland the wind died. I thought I would try Bay Rock it looked that good. After arriving nothing seemed to be happening so I did some basic drifting along the Northern edge. Thankfully a nice 47cm trevally took the fly and I was happy! After fishing through this area I moved onto Middle Reef and again drifted the area, this time mainly the Western side and a nice but small coral trout took the fly. I tried fishing but mainly watching the flats off Cockle Bay and Pallarenda, nothing seemed to be working so I moved on. I know the tide probably let me down but still worth the trip. Thats all for the report this week but I will go for a little fish this afternoon chasing some local tarpon.
