We have our niece Jess and her boy friend Dale up this week with a goal of landing a fish larger than a bream or flathead ...
With SE winds between 20-25 knots we started off down the straights looking for a barra or jew - but struggle with the amount of fresh in the system at present. Next plan was to try a few creeks where Jess open our account with a reasonable tailor on a Thready Buster
Dale came finally came good with his 1st Diamond trevally which put up quite a show - again nailing a Thready Buster
The wind is forecast to drop out on Wednesday and our plan will be to head up the island for a look and see if we can get Dale connected to a few tuna - stay tuned ..........
With the wind finally forecast to drop off ..... a bit we headed up the island yesterday for a look and it didn't take long for Dale to hook his 1st tuna
After a reasonable inning we finally netted Dales 1st Tuna and largest fish to date
There where quite a few macs mixed in as well ....
When they where "tuna'd out " we went looking for some snapper - where Dale caught another new species with a nice Tea leaf. All in all not a bad day on the water - Next will be a day trip to Fraser on Friday to finish their holiday - How Good Is Hervey Bay
Took our daughter Eleasha & Rhi up the island on Easter Monday as well with a number of nice teal leaf trevally & a few tuna keeping them on their toes for the day
