Fly Fishing

Chasing Golden Trevalley on the Magnetic Island flats.


Enjoying one of the many beautiful beaches of Magnetic Island.

Wednesday 16 January 2013

Bay Run

The forecast for Monday/Tuesday was for 5-10knot winds and smooth seas. So I thought Monday was going to be the day that we finally got the new boat beyond Maggie Island. But yet again, it just wan't going to happen. A solid 10-15knots blowing from the North first thing! But it was beautiful between the Island and Middle Reef, so thats where we hung out.

We fished a few different marks around the area for a couple of small Trevalley and undersize Nannygai. But we found most success fishing the reef fringe off Cockle Bay. The fish were only small reefies, but the kids had a lot of fun landing a multitude of species including Cod, Trout, Sweetlip and Stripies. The kids fished mainly Thready Busters and I was giving a new hard bodied vibe from Quickcatch Lures a go.

A quick drop into Picknick Bay on the way home and kids had a dip in the stinger nets while I relaxed on the boat. Its nice to be able to get out and have a fish and good morning on the water close to the island, even when the wind isn't whats predicted!
