    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    I wish I was going! I'm off with work for a few days starting early Tuesday, so browny points at home tomorrow, hopefully it's down later in the week! Happy hunting...

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    Headed out there today in good conditions. The forecast was spot on so it was a little sloppy on the way out but still cruised at 25 knots all the way.

    Chased trout first up this morning and caught 10 in pretty quick time then we paid a fair bit of shark tax as we couldn't get any in the boat after that without the man in the grey suit giving us a touch up again. The barstards have given us a touch up in recent times, with a couple of big bronzies in the 6-8 foot mark. But they seemed to be on the chew though and pretty keen on Pillies only.

    The trout slowed up around 9.30-10 but we kept hunting around for a bit of new ground but couldn't get a bite. So we headed out in the deep water chasing reds. We caught 7 nice big mouth around the 10lb mark and a couple more rosie jobfish, but they were very difficult to catch. They were playing around with the bait and you'd strike them and start to wind only for them to let go so missed a fair few good fish. But after the last trip and this trip we had heaps of fish so we headed off and left them biting.

    I've done 3 trips in 3 weeks so I think that will do me for a while. Need to get back to work and make some money.

    Anybody else get out there today and get amongst any fish?

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    Pazz, Yeah I have fished three trips in three weeks. The first two trips were wide and were two of the best. Bagged out on Nannies and Spangled in 3-4 hours both times. They were only upto 3 kilo, it was just too good to get away from my favourite rock and onto the paddock where the larger ones graze. It was rare to wait longer than a minute for a hook up. There was the usual bi catch aswell as the sharks which grabbed every fish in the end. With bag limits reached we fished for trout as the sun came up but couldn't get past the large mouth. So we gave that a miss as they didn't fair well on the journey up. With fish ridiculously easy to catch I decided to fish for finger mark yesterday, and regreted it. I caught one just on size and probably dropped another and that was it. Should have fished wide again. Best run I've had in 9 months. I'm worried now the wind will stay down, as I'll have to head out wide again!!!

    Was going to head out today but a bearing in my car is on the way out, spewing. Daintree boy landed an 84.5cm large mouth nanny a couple nights ago, nice fish! Was hoping to have a crack at beating that but won't be out for well over a week now.

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    I have done 2 trips very recently. Early in the week I did a solo trip at night, the first 6 drops resulted in 6 Nannygai around 3-4kg so I decided to try elsewhere for variety. Caught my bag limit soon after with the biggest Nanny going 86cm.

    Yesterday I headed out with my brother in law and started by throwing lures in the shallows. We caught a few smaller fish, one nice trout and one big bust off so headed a little deeper to fish with bait. We had a dozen trout and one Mack (caught on a trout rig and single hook) by early arvo so decided we had enough fish and headed in.

    Two good trips for me and it sounds like everyone has been doing well.

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    New PB nanny at 86.5 beat my last PB by 0.5cm but I'll take it.

    Took forum member Richard out of Port Douglas and he landed an 84cm too. Better than our last saltwater trip ages ago where the wind was a lot higher than anticipated and I broke my console so he had to help hold it the whole way back!

    No full report, way too stuffed but rubble in 50m won the day. Cheers all. 86.5 nanny.jpg

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    No unfortunately mate, we got a couple of them the same size then they went off the chew, tried quite a few spots that held fish but they didn't play the game mate. Tried lives, plastics, squid, pillies and cut fish flesh and they just weren't keen.

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    Realised it was barra closure midnight Thursday, so shot out late with a few plastics and hit a hot bite. Raised 7 but managed to land these 4. Was very happy to end the season on such a note
    Cheers

    Very nice catch there Odes. A mate got a salty two weeks ago that went 128cm.

    Re: Cairns area - saltwater.

    Caught them on the beginning of the runout tide. notice the black tails , of which someone said they would be from the fresh water, but they are delicious eating so certainly saltwater barra.
