No luck on the big tide!

After reading all the reports of Barra being caught all week I was super keen to get on the water this weekend. Even with the massive 4m tide this morning and 2in of rain that fell overnight I just had to get out. Dad and I initially planned to go out the front of Cocoa and fish the mangroves on the inside of the cape. But the overnight rain put a damper on that idea (no pun intended). So a change of plans had as heading for the Haughton.

We went up the river, we went down the river. But it didn't see to matter, we couldn't find fish anywhere. The only bump I had all morning was from a LongTom amongst the flooded mangroves, and even he didn't hook up.

Despite our lack of success, it was a fun morning on the water. You just had to be there to witness the massive tide. Just have a look at the ramp and some of the huge logs what were floating about.
