The Catch
Barracuda (Great)

It came without warning!
All of a sudden the last few days the temperature has been on the rise and the winter conditions are leaving us!
I always look forward to the arrival of September as the fish in the inlet begin to switch on from the rising water temperatures.
Sure enough the last few charters have produced some quality fish.
Our friends Taylor and Chlorise from Canada and France caught a mid sized Barracuda.While not a table fish it did put up a great fight.
Ted and Jill caught a nice Queenie that jumped several times.As they were caravanning it was just the right size for the evening meal.
The best fish of the last couple days was Chad and Rachael’s 80 cm Jew Fish!
It put up a terrific fight and was cooked up tropical style wrapped in a banana leaf!!
The live bait continues to be abundant and along with the usual sardines a few prawns have been collected as well.
Once again the black moon and the incoming morning tides are but a few days away.
Big baits on the pressure points in close to the mangroves should start to produce some early Barras!
