Post Cyclone Bianca Fish

Well a mate and i went for a spin today to check out the creeks after the cyclone.  Typically the fishing can be pooh after the rain etc.  There was a lot of fresh about and very dirty water.  On top of that only around one meter of movement meant things were probably going to be pretty average.

 

We managed one barra, only small but good to see a fish none the less.  On top of that we managed about 15 jacks in a session.  We have since named the spot Jackpot, overall not a bad day.  We had a contest with a mullet to see how many fish we could cach on it.  We took turns and it lasted for 8 fish, 5 of which were jacks, pretty amazing and a bit of fun anyway.

 

Cheers have attached a couple of pics from today

Bloody nice Jack photos

Sun, 2011-01-30 09:46

Also had a post cyclone fish but the bigger boys werent playing. Got our feed a some nice big bluelined and that will have to do. Pretty swelly out wide and IMO in the last 3 yrs my tolerance to swells ( I never even felt sick in big swell down south) must have taken a battery, as I started to feel green after the missus said she was feeling off. LOL. Got to get the swell legs back!!!!

Brad how much doctoring off the photo?

Tue, 2011-02-01 17:09

The more I look at that last jack shot the more impressed. How much extra work at home to spruce it up to such a fantastic shot, or is it simply the camera?

nah, there is a little work, but not much.  The vivid colour is actually becasue the fish was wet and lit up by the sun and the flash really nicely
