    Big Neil and Blackfish

    I don't think I would describe Gordon as tall and dark, more tall and mysterious. The mystery unfolds after several late night drinks. Yes he knows how to fish I learnt a lot from fishing with him. Glad Neil got some black fish. Bruce

    Botany bay with BigNeil

    I'm sure Neil appreciated the effort and it will only make the next successful trip seem better Bruce

    5000 klm for a bream

    Just south of Broome Barn hill station. Arrived yesterday afternoon had a fish off the shore caught about a dozen under size reef fish plus two good bream. They will do for dinner tonight The bream appear to be a variation on our normal yellow fin bream. Try again this arvo. Was a nice sunset

    Those of you who want to go to Weipa it is doable for six people it costs just under $1500 each for a week plus airfare plus your alcohol. We found the action in Triluck was great lots of queenies all types of trevally plus a few barra and jacks Normon fished well for jacks l landed 15 one day plus big queenies and some barra. Just outside norman near the rock island we got a 5kg gt

    Just back from Weipa Was a different trip this year as no bait schools or pelagics. Made up for it with barra jacks and reef fish. I caught over 30 barra about a third legal best 70 cm Similar number of jacks.Queen fish to a meter were common and the reef fish joined in for some tasty meals. Fished the beaches a lot as sheltered from the wind even found a couple of nice muddies up in the shallows just a few photos

    Botany fad

    Try the wide fads the fish are still there with a lot of fish over 90 cm try to get there before 8 to give yourself a better chance . They get shy with the boat traffic but will still bite even on pillies . Keep the bait moving and try around the fad up to 200 m. Bruce

    Bate Bay

    When I was heading out this morning didn't see you at Yowie bay or Lilli Pilli now I know why. It's always good to have bit of variety in our fishing. Are you heading across the top to WA or across the bottom. We don't leave to take the van across to Broome and the Kimberley for another 5 weeks. Got to go to Weipa for a couple of weeks fishing first. Bruce

    We head up to Weipa in 3 weeks so report could be very interesting but I think I might be traveling are you on a house boat charter or whatever Bruce
