Took the grand kids for a fish to finish off there holidays and will take their older brother tomorrow as he has an extra days holiday.

Jew fish, bream, flathead, mud crabs and blue swimmers made for a great day.

Great effort there, especially for the kids. Though not big fish, at that size they still put up a big fight on the line and will have the kids wanting more.

They will probably remember the fishing with Grandad for the rest of their lives. Hopefully they will want to continue their outdoor pursuits and pass their skills down to their kids. Great result, well done everyone. bn

I wonder how it is with the current wash of rainfall through though, Im tempted to have a look on the weekend, but I suspect it will be plenty murky, maybe down towards lion island might be ok, however, I usually fish upstream, at least past the railway and road bridges towards and or around Milson Island

man loin island will be dirty brown water as well we need a few very big king tides to wash it all away, I would think at least 1 month

Hi Dave

Ater heavy rain where the river gets a lot of debris washed in I drift along Milson island shallows and more often than not get a bag of good size flatties. The island seems to filter the water on the run out tide.

Still getting lots of heavy rain which has washed the prawns out. The Colo had a huge amount of water come down it which would have stuffed the bass habitats up. I was working on a property that fronts onto the Colo a couple of days ago and seen a huge sand beach that was not there before. 

Guess we will have to find where the bass set up there bases all over again, t's good fun anyway makes you work harder to find these great scrapers!
