Boat ramps will be busy

spon­sored by fan­cied and re­ports in­di­cated that few an­glers re­turned home emp­ty­handed.

The Allen fam­ily of Mt Low con­tin­ued their man­grove jack hunt fish­ing one of their favourite creeks on Sun­day catch­ing sev­eral of the tasty red demons as well as some bait steal­ing but le­gal size mud crab.

Young Asha might have caught the fish of the day with a fine man­grove jack of bet­ter than 40cm.

Hun­gry fish line up

SCHOOL­TEACHER Billy Green and mate Ryan Barker did their thing in Mor­ris­sey’s Creek on Satur­day, Green declar­ing the creek alive with fish.

The pair claimed a bar­ra­mundi early in the day but told of hun­gry grunter, bream and salmon that seemed happy to take al­most any bait.

Green, a Mor­ris­sey’s Creek reg­u­lar, said the fish­ing was sim­ply in­cred­i­ble.

And Jamie Janes and daugh­ters Natar­sha, 12, and Clare, 4, found a sim­i­lar qual­ity of fish­ing when they too, dropped their lines in Mor­ris­sey’s Creek on Sun­day.

“The girls each caught their very first le­gal fish,” writes Jamie, “Natar­sha this nice bream, 38cm, on slab mul­let and Clare this nice grunter, 46cm, on squid.”

An­other three bream be­tween 28 and 33cm long and five buck mud­crabs each wider than the re­quired 15cm min­i­mum le­gal size made for a won­der­ful es­tu­ary haul.
