    BRIBIE FLY REPORT #FRIDAY AND SATURDAY

    Hi all,
    Went looking for some longtails on friday but had to travel alot of miles to find them. I left Moolooaba harbour travled to Coolum then back to Moolooaba then down to Bribie Is where i finally found them in good numbers. The water was so clear that i was able to sight cast to them as sipped the bait off the surface.It was a great day as i ended up with 5 longtails. But on Saturday Quinny69 and i left spinniker sound to get amongst them it was a different story as the water was dirty from the n/e wind which made it difficult for the tuna to school up the bait and see our fly's.But Quinny soon had the answer with a flashy profile which saw a 10-12kg longtail come aboard, Quinny's first for the year.Thanks for a great day's fishing Quinny.

    Hi Rob,
    Good to see them still here. Maybe because the water temp is 22 deg ?

    Steve,

    ended up with none. Thre was no fish to the north of where I last saw you so we headed to Currimundi and jigged a few SPs for a bit of rubbish. Wind was up by then so we didn't stay long.

    Hi Duckbill,
    No worries, Soon as i get my boat back i'll pm you for a time.You might have to fight Quinny for a spot though
    DazB yes they didn't want to play the game for sure. The seemed to come on better in the afternoon i probally should have stayed longer. But thats tuna fishing as they say !

    Quinny, went out with 2 guys from work on the "toad tub", and saw a few longys out there, big ones - 15kg jobs... I had about half a dozen good casts at them, and I even had what seemed like 2 following, but no luck. There seemed to be 2 schools about, maybe 6-10 fish per school, but no birds, very little surface activity and then they just disappeared at 13:00. We stuck around a bit then headed back, for the "toad tub" was out of juice!!!

    There were 2 other boats out there but I don't think they had any more luck than we did...

    Hope to get out there again soon... Still have to test my new 9 weight on them... Come on Steve, my turn now!!!

    P.S.: The infamous "toad tub" is an antique 16' Haines Hunter...

    Nice work mabo, did they just "Turn On" and start feeding?? What flies did ya use?. DuckBill, I know how ya feel,But those fishless trips ya still learn a thing or 2 (thank god, I have heaps), esesially when you can see the fish and there reaction to ya fly, addictive stuff, but bloody frustrating.
    Wes/Justin, any luck? Did yas go out?

    John

    Did you get them where we saw you? How big? On the surface or with a sinking line? And any chance that I could come along one of these days? The toad tub isn't the best of vessels, and guzzles like crazy - 140 Evinrude and small tanks
