Daintree to Cooktown hot spots
WRECKS and wonky holes are producing nice Spanish and doggy mackerel on highspeed metal jigs. Large trevally are also on the wrecks and testing fishermen’s stamina. The rivers have been quieter on big tides with small barra and fingermark caught on live baits. Big whiting have been biting on the sand flats on peeled prawns. Reef fishing has been tough in the heat with night fishing producing best on nannygai and red emperor.
