    Species in a single session

    I know Weipa is pretty much the gold standard for salt water flats fishing in Australia but my little corner of the Whitsundays has to be a close second in the right conditions. 10 last saturday all in less than 3 feet of water. Jack, Pickey bream, cod, barracuda, GT, Golden, Giant Herring, Queenfish, swallow tail dart and a bonefish, plus 30 or 40 casts at permit.

    Well done Kev.
    All that's missing are Black and White Tips, Bulls, Tigers, Hammerheads and Whites.
    You may need to get into a little deeper water and closer to some of the visitor burley trails tho.
    What could go wrong.......................

    Mmm! Enough said. Not big on sharks on the "long wand".

    Be an "interesting" kind of fly you would have to tie if you were "matching the hatch" of late.

    Donnybrook today. Bream, tarwhine, whiting, flathead, Moses perch, parrot, grassy sweetlip, long Tom, stingray. Unusual not to get a grunter which would have made 10.

    unfamiliar with Permit. had to look it up , never seen the offspring from a GT and queenfish before. looks a pretty and powerful fish. big fork tail i reckon they must go hard out.

    Nup. Just a similar session to what Phil mentioned a couple posts previous. Thought that would be obvious. Sorry if you misunderstood.
