Winter Charter reports 2017



A fairly warm winter again this year. Fortunate to see a good number of golden trevally help our tours buckle rods.The other trevally that has been a hit are the Diamond and Pennant trevally. Not always big but they are fast powerful running fish that keep us entertained, especially when they are hooked on a relatively light snapper stick.

Trevs are taking both jigs and plastics.

And the winter special, snapper, have not been too bad. Some good specimens here and there, but I can not say it has been a smashing year. Most snapper hooked on slow plastic presentations.

A few big tuna about too. Makes life interesting when you accidently hit one.

Enough talk, enjoy the images!

Well winter comes to an end. Thankfully those goldens stayed strong for us. Certainly putting solid bends in rods in place of a lack of snapper. A very warm winter here for us, so maybe that is why we lacked the numbers of snapper.

A few intermittent longtails helped out too, but certainly no monsters!
