WE CAN’T complain too much about the Easter weather and there’s been a few opportunities to get out during the lead-up to, and over, the weekend.
This week ahead looks pretty good too.
Whether out in the blue, inshore around the islands, or in the rivers and creeks, there’s been a bit going with plenty of fish on the chew.
With the good weather and small tides, the deeper shoals around the islands and out wider should fish well for nannies and reds.
They’ve been fishing well of late but, as usual, the sharks can make it hard to land fish at times.
The smaller tides, early this week, make it easier to fish most areas whether out in the blue or in the rivers and creeks, especially places like the Proserpine River, were we have large tidal movement, so it will be best early this week while the tides are at their smallest.
There’s been plenty of barra around and a few threadies and grunter too.
The muddies have been copping a bit of a touch up with the Easter crowds but there’s still a few good quality crabs getting caught.
The lake has been popular too and it’s great to see so many people utilising the facilities we have available up there now.
The cooler nights and mornings are just starting, so the barra may be a little slow for a few days.
They seem to really get affected by the cool south westerly breeze in the mornings but improve after a few days.
As I said, the weather looks really good this week, which is a real bonus with the school holidays and it’s just a great time of the year in our part of the world.
So good luck and enjoy it, if you can get out for a fish.
