Fishing the Herbert River

We decided to fish a secret spot (He He) on the Herbert River. As Richard was still chasing fish for his top ten, Liam is off to the army soon and I was after a nice legal sooty for the Townsville Baptist Club Top Ten. We followed our noses and went to an old fishing spot that usually delivers. The day looked good, we arrived at our spot early enough for a morning fish. When we arrived we expected to see a bit of a change to the system from the recent floods, but the change was dramatic. Were we normally fish there was little to no water, and where we normally camp there was plenty of sand and a lot less rock! No problem, we went for a walk and found some nice new runs. As we fished we soon discovered the big fish were having a rest. No problems the little sooties on light rods still make a fuss. Richard found some nice Tarpon up to 43cm, Liam landed his sooty, and I got a couple. All in all a good day, thanks boys.
