justa very brief report from my trip to the bow holes in carnarvon. there were some great fish caught up there never really got on to any big schools of fish of the same species as we always ended up with a mixed bag at the end of each day. these included trout, cobia, macks, pinks, spangles, rankin, eastray cod, finger mark, tomato cod and plenty of spanish flag. the weather only got better as the days went on. we left gero early sat morning and it rained most of the way and continued raining the rest of the evening in carnarvon and up at the blows. sundays weather was not bad had a light nrth east - east wind which blew most of of the day with a light swell so we headed north. highlight of the day was the 93cm trout.
monday welcomed us with a couple of storm front moving through so we headed south and hung close to shore and floated a few baits for spagos managed to get a couple but this is where my mate blacky hooked up a nice cobia in 5-10m of water. from here the weather got a bit better so we decided to head out a bit deeper and bottom bounce for a bit, not a lot was happening here picked up a pink or 2 but had a bit of trouble with a few sharks. we persisted for a bit and next minute my old mans line peeled off, after a bit of a fight he got the fish to the boat to discover it was a nice spanish mack. another storm front moved in so we head back to the bay and threw a few squid jigs around to no avail. but as we had givin up all hope the front moved on and we were faced with a glass off in which head headed back out and went south for the arvo for a good session with the spangles.
tuesday we woke up with no wind at all and bugger all swell so we headed north and tried a few spots from sunday, all we mangaed to get were a few pinks and they moved on pretty quick. the weather was glassing off and the fish wernt biting, think it was to still for them. by this stage the water was glass so we decided to head quiet a few km's offshore in the search of a few reds. no luck on our boat with any reds but managed a few rankins, eaturay cods, tomato cod and a few norwest snapper to finish the trip off.
anyway heres a few pics
Hope you enjoy
