Cyclone blew it for fishers
WHAT a month we have had, starting off with strong south-east winds which created some beautiful gutters along the beachfront.
Then before anyone could even get a chance to fish them, it finishes off with a tropical cyclone blowing 45 knots from the north, which filled the gutters back in with sand.
Beach fishing to the side, Theodolite Creek has been very patchy, with only a few whiting, bream and flathead being landed.
The fresh water flowing downstream has the crabs on the move and your best bet is to crab around the mouth of the creeks and rivers.
Grunter are also still on the bite and I find them to be more active with this brackish water about. Some nice catches are still coming in around the 60-65cm mark.
The prawns are also very patchy at the moment and I think once the fresh clears up we might see them shoaling up and we may be in for another whopping season like two years ago. Keep your eyes pealed.
If you want more information on the hotspots or any fishing tips, call in and see me at Serenity Cove Cafe in Woodgate and I'll set you up with all the gear you need to catch that big one.
NICE ONE: This was one of the better recent catches.
Beach gutters fill in quickly.
