LORD HOWE ISLAND - Easter 2014

Hey all,

I'm going to Lord Howe Island for Easter! Wohoo! Will take the trusty 9wt flyfishing outfit. Already stocking up on flies (clousers, minnows, crab patterns...).

Has anyone been there and has any suggestions? I did some searching, also on this site, and there does not seem to be much in terms of flyfishing on the web, but just looking at the lagoon on google maps...

Also will look into a charter for a day.

Lord Howe is the home of the YTK. I'd be packing my heavy jigging rods if I were you.
My uncle just got back from a trip, they could only fish 1 out of 4 days because of the weather, however the one day they got out they managed over 50 kingys with some very big ones amongst them. not sure what is on offer in the lagoon unfortunately.
