It’s still a bit chilly with the wind but we had a lovely sunny day. We never expect to catch anything as that’s how fishing goes. But we did catch a few so there’s definitely fish around ?

Depending on the day, weather could prohibit you from fishing the reef but that’s to be expected anywhere.

Be prepared for all types of weather and that any catch is a good catch. We went in May and this day was cloudy and the temp had dropped. It was an estuary morning half day trip, I caught a Blue Salmon..other species caught on the trip were Trevally, Mangrove Jack and Grunter. So although the dream was of a Barramundi...just remember to enjoy the thrill, the company and that each day brings a different catch!

Worth the drive. Less overfished relative to Carins and shorter boat ride to the fish (this makes it good for kids).
