    Re: Cairns wind

    A few boats got out today and if it holds, tomorrow may be OK. Not a breath of wind right now.

    OK Just thought I would stir the pot a bit!!

    Dont forget last August we had a bout 3 fantastic windows of 2 days at least Dont remember them being mill pond like Moffys great pics but they were beautiful days anyway. I will always remember that August for two Saturday arvo trips that produced fantastic catches of reds and large mouth.

    First arvo was me and my girl, and the second was with the starry eyed group holding fish while still blown away from a 2 hour session to remember. All in August last year. The bloke with the big red is Garry Smith who co hosts Fishtalk on the ABC.

    Cheers

    Got out to the Palms this morning. Conditions good but fish not co-operating. Slackest of tides. The motor needed a run and still trying to fine tune the new Furuno sounder.

    I'm watching a very small window on Thursday, won't be calm but will be better than it been for weeks. Fingers crossed.

    Looks like Thursdays window is closing fast, but mid next week is looking good at this stage.

    Hey John

    Na, I don't get out mid-week very often due to my job commitments (but I'd love to go more) and the old man job doesn't allow him either. On the rare occassion we go. The in-laws in innisfail go mid week as they can get away from their business so I might venture down that way. But i'd like to get myself a job were I can get out more tho, that would be great. One day i keep telling myself I might get there.

    Jesus they don't miss you do they. I cooked up a feed of saltwater barra last night from a recent trip away and it was ok. Nothin on a nice red or trout. But still beats buying it.

    At one stage there when my old man was crook we were eating fish 3-4 times a week for about 6 months. God we must have went through some trout. Still when we have fish we'd eat 2 feeds at least a week by 3 families that's 6 feeds a week. We go through plenty of fish. But it's never wasted.

    I hear there is a flu epidemic making it's way here, due about Tues. next week. Probably will affect hundreds of people, water therapy may be the only cure.

    Bloody hell, I wish seabreeze would get it's S&*t together. The last few days the forecast for next week has been good at 3pm and then crap at 9am the next morning. What is with that?

    My hopes go up at 3pm and then sink again at 9am the next morning. It's killing me.

    Re: Cairns wind

    I hear ya Pazz - i tend to have a look at the chart myself and get a better picture of whether its likely to be calm or not - Seabreeze has made a lot of calls this current rough spell where it was supposed to be calm down the track but turned out staying rough as guts.......
