Been getting some fish. The rain is flooding the rivers and making it difficult to get out at runes. Other times the westerlies have flattened the water right out. Locals have told me the westerlies kill the bite-and so it seems. I’ll post some photos once I get my laptop back. Been in for repairs and using the phone is took much of a hassle
Martin-

you don't havta be pretty to fish

Ok I have my laptop back, albeit missing a few programs that is going to be interesting.
A quick run down of some fish photos. Things are a little quiet due to the rivers going in and out of flood making it hard to know where the fish are going to be. Plus also the westerly winds which seem to have put the dampeners on the reef fishing - this is what other fishos and spear fishermen have told me and it seems to be the case.

We also have tilapia up her, this 41 cm model was caught on a Headland Lure



The westerly winds clear flatten out the water, this is Vicki Harriott Reef. Water this clear make the fish very wary


Wal with a big spotty mackerel on one of his lures

 
Wal with another mackerel on the same lure - before he lost it to an even bigger mackerel.



Me with a 120+ cm spanish mackerel on a Fugly Martin's Minnow

A close up of that lure and the mackerel's head - nice teeth
 
We also did a bit of bait fishing, but I didn't take photos of those fish - coral trout, morwong, trevally, red throat sweet lip.
