Late start leaving town with wife having a riding time with her horse on Friday arvo.
We try several places on way back up the harbor towards Crab Claw Peninsular. Get my third (small snapper) and fourth (small trevally) species. Peter was after his fourth at Kiara Rock and rock strewn flats behind it but wind blew us off this area.
Peter gets three species – a queenie, trevally and a small mack from a spot way up the charlotte river – that you would expect to get a barra from – a muddy drain – what a crazy day.
Main flies used for the day were small white clousers (some bucktail, some goat hair) and small silicone surf candies.
Tomorrow if wind is nice we plan to fish the top of Harbour. Here’s hoping.
Then off to sleep and hoping to be off early to do it again on Day two.
(a bit pessimistic given same wind and tides on Day Two)
With in a couple of casts both of us had a couple of species.
We then continued our journey to the front of the harbour .
As you can see below Peter was quite comfortable during the ride north. That's Knife in the middle and the pearl farm sheds on the left.
Turtle island empty too
