Cy­clone blew it for fish­ers

Isis Town and Country - - Woodgate - – Benn Gra­ham

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.
