BEACHES TO DAIN­TREE

The Cairns Post - - LIFESTYLE -

With reef fish­ing off the agenda due to the Co­ral Reef fin fish clo­sure this week, most turned to tar­get­ing pe­lagic species. Span­ish mack­erel, co­bia and trevally have all been in good

Dain­tree River num­bers with pop­pers over the shal­low reef bom­mies and metal jigs worked on the wrecks pro­duc­ing great re­sults. Qual­ity mack­erel have been caught trolling deep lures on the reef ridges. The Cairns In­let fished well with man­grove jacks, bar­ra­mundi, finger­mark, trevally, es­tu­ary cod and blue sal­mon all tak­ing live sar­dines and mud her­ring.
