The Catch
Snapper (Mangrove)
Bream (Fingermark)

As the day time temperature starts to increase, so does the activity of the Barramundi. They have increased there feeding to be ready for breeding over the summer months (our wet season). From 1st November there is a closure for Barramundi to allow them to breed; however if one is caught we release back into the water.
We have noticed a mark increase on the bigger tides of Grunter being caught (and of good eating size); no mention a big increase in the amount and sizes of Fingermark (another excellent sports fish and table fish) as well as the ever present Mangrove Jack coming in bright to dark red in colour and of a bigger size.
