This year’s light tackle winter fishing has been one of the quietest for charters on record, reflecting the downturn in Cairn’s general tourism also. Therefore days of fishing have been limited, though those days fished have been excellent with plenty of Spanish mackerel, giant trevally and shots at both marlin and sailfish.
With a break in the weather last week we had a great day out with my old skipper, Laurie Woodbridge and his grandson Luke and also along were 3 generations of Cambpells – George, Glenn & Jack with John Mondora riding along to take photos of his old fishing mates and their sons and grandsons.
Though no marlin, we had an active day catching plenty of Spanish mackerel, trevally and cod.
In between the odd charter and unfavourable weather, I’ve had some stellar barramundi fishing with mates, Glen Campbell, Laurie Wright, Darren Haydon and Hayden Bell.
