This opportunistic fish must have been caught 5 times this year by clients in my favourite Snapper spot usually by grabbing a little trevally and refusing to let go, as hard as i lecture him he still does it.
Had a great day out with Glenn Watt and Dean Jackson in a very tight creek trying to stop fish like this on my 9wgt fly rod,we all lost Barra in the tight confines until to this one nailed Glenn 114 cms on a rubber tail,im in the photo because I did a great job on the net. next time I'm taking my 11 wgt !
One of the standard procedures guiding out of Crab Claw at Bynoe Harbour is to utilise the turn of the high tide. On any week making to the moon it occurs in early to late afternoon.
I generally take a break two thirds into the incoming tide for a few hrs then go out and target the turn of the high tide for pelagics. The main point to consider here is any turn of tide is a solunar major (feeding period).
The closer it happens toward sunset the better and I always called this period the" Diurnal Nocturnal Crossover" which means day time feeders heading to bed and night time feeders getting out and about.
There a numerous places in Bynoe that this occurs and can often be frantic as this footage shows.
The guides association has started setting up stands at various shows in Brisbane Melbourne and Adelaide so if your around drop in, my video is usually running and have a coffee/ chat.
