A significant event has occurred which I allude to in that post of the continuing processions of the Equinox's
Simplifying this to some degree you will notice this happening.
In any given 24hr period you have 2 low tides and two high tides ,October to end of April the lowest and highest tides are in the daylight hours from May to end of October they occur in the dark.
Why ? its a phenomenon in our evolution that the earth's divides our seasons and solstices , an Earth that is not round and on an axis moves the equinoxes from Summer to Autumn Spring to Winter every year.
To circumvent the complexity,appreciate it like this.
Two weeks ago the biggest low was in the daylight now the biggest low is in the dark the Autumn Equinox commenced 2 weeks ago with a low down to 1,0m and the daylight low was no more then 2.3ms.
What does this mean for us ? if you are a predominantly a shallow water hunter like me it means more time on the flats, thats the bonus and one of the prime reasons I start my guiding in and around the end of April to end of October,that is when we see the return of the spring equinox.
Last week fishing started well until the massive high and strong winds sent everyone scurrying for jumpers
Reefs and holes produced Jacks and Snapper in numbers.and occasional Tarpon and Blue Threadfin.
The Barra didn't like it and started ignoring us, some were caught although it was the exception and not the rule,Queenfish were plentiful as you would expect with the cooler months and numerous fish were caught up to 90 cms
The Diurnal and Nocturnal crossover (last light, first light) was excellent during the week with numerous small to medium Trevally and Queenfish caught in numbers,this is undoubtedly a very pleasant way to start or finish a day in Bynoe harbour.
On a final note for those who think its easy to fall off my Hewes, Dotty did the big spear off purely from horsing around, nonetheless she wins the step off trophy.
