Yep, here comes our favourite time of year…big saltwater barra action has already started. The Shoal Bay ‘Rock’ is again producing 90cm+ barra across the top of the tide, and the Killalure Barrabait in BDSI Bling is doing damage. One crew totalled four fish to 98cm…..that ain’t a bad start to the build up in anyone’s language!
Inland, Billabong water temps are up and the fishing has been improving of late. Corroboree has been good early in the mornings, with fish to 65cm caught on Reidys Little Lucifers and Junior B52’s.
Recent windy conditions have halted a few bluewater boys, but others had a crack. Fenton Patches went off from the first drop for a crew fishing the neaps, bagging out on Jewfish to 120cm straight up and a nice catch of Goldies and Cod. On their way back, the Six Mile grounds rounded out a productive day with the odd mackeral still about on the surface taking drifted dead baits.
Looking forward to big barra reports now….bring it on!
