nomad « Thu Oct 27, 2016 10:34 am » ditto- ive launched when i had ankle deep water but never again. ALWAYS launch on the incoming or you will miss out and be stuck for a very long time
dannett « Thu Oct 27, 2016 10:32 am » At this time of year, unless it is a 7m + tide you will need a rising tide (running out can be risky as you can easily miss the tide). Height varies but around 4.5m rising is okay, you will want the tide to top out above 5.5m or you might not have enough window of time.
Toakes89 « Wed Oct 26, 2016 9:31 pm » Cheers mate, how much water do i need at the barrage to be able to launch this time of year?
nomad « Wed Oct 26, 2016 7:16 pm » pu this link into your computer for future ref
Toakes89 « Wed Oct 26, 2016 6:37 pm » Just seeing when time i can launch n retreive at the shady on the 6th nov
Matt Flynn « Wed Oct 26, 2016 9:45 am » Depends on the wet season, you won't get through while the crossings are up
Rob Tranter « Wed Oct 26, 2016 6:47 am » Hi all, am new to this sight, and I would like to get some info on fishing the run off, April/May next year. We will be heading to Manangoora I think. My question is, when travelling to such places during the run off, how difficult are the creek crossings on the road up. Is it worth waiting a while till all flows stop? or should they be passable. Cheers, any info greatley appriciated.
Agent86 « Tue Oct 25, 2016 11:10 pm » Going there Friday, will get some pics
hottuna « Tue Oct 25, 2016 8:42 pm » Still working on it Nomad
nomad « Tue Oct 25, 2016 8:35 pm » are they sill working on it or have they finished?
hottuna « Mon Oct 24, 2016 9:45 pm » Dundee ramp has looked the same for pretty much the last 3 weeks. End of November was the last I heard.
Bmacdonald90 « Mon Oct 24, 2016 9:43 pm » Yeh thats what im tossing up at the moment. Not often you get a day off and when you do it blows up: gotta love it
Lats « Mon Oct 24, 2016 9:25 pm » Charles Point is the last place you want to be in a wind. There is an area there I call the washing machine. 20kmh might be ok.But if you're out there and it's blowing harder, how would you fare?
Bmacdonald90 « Mon Oct 24, 2016 8:19 pm » Dundee ramp is soo close! Out there today. Surely no more then 2 weeks away. Also thinking of heading out to charles point tomorrowmorning. 20k winds on neaps. Am i dreaming in a 4.8 top ender? How rough does it get? Cherrs
Matt Flynn « Mon Oct 24, 2016 1:19 pm » No nets in and around Trinity Inlet now, should be getting better, salmon, grunter, goldies ... and there are some stonker barra in the Barron if you get it sussed
TLG « Mon Oct 24, 2016 1:10 pm » Just arrived in Cairns after many years in the NT. Any clues on where to fish?
qiksix « Sat Oct 22, 2016 4:53 pm » Any more news on the dundee ramp?
alfie « Sat Oct 22, 2016 10:35 am » Dragonfly reviews. Who has used them and would you choose it over Lowrance? Only looking at base model finders / plotter.
Andy Grey « Sat Oct 22, 2016 9:59 am » looks like it might be a nice wet day today
cuddlescooper « Fri Oct 21, 2016 9:40 pm » yes was the boat in the catalina creeks. old love used to do her head in every time i drove past. lol
Deathadder33 « Fri Oct 21, 2016 7:29 pm » If anyone is looking for a Decky, this weekend, I'm free. Anytime of fishing, Thanks!
c9h14n « Thu Oct 20, 2016 11:38 pm » I think it spent some time in Nhulunbuy, but could be wrong.
mac10 « Thu Oct 20, 2016 5:45 pm » Is that the heap of rubbish that was moored up Cosacks for years, with the very cranky women on board? I noticed it has gone and been replaced by a flotilla of other timber boats.
Out Blue « Wed Oct 19, 2016 8:37 pm » Anyone doing the DTBC Bluewater Comp? Thinking of heading over to the trench, any advice or anyone else thinking of heading that direction?
Edo « Wed Oct 19, 2016 5:52 pm » would love to hit the perons next weekend Dennis but being my wedding anniversary i would really be GAME FISHING if i went!!
mac10 « Wed Oct 19, 2016 5:51 pm » Hi Dennis, I might be up for a trip, will keep in touch.
Scotty69 « Wed Oct 19, 2016 5:14 pm » Corroboree was hard work today. Hope they do better over the weekend.
Scotty69 « Wed Oct 19, 2016 5:12 pm » @wazdog, gillnet across the river down from the crossing.
Agent86 « Wed Oct 19, 2016 2:30 pm » anyone interested in going for a cruise to the Perons next week, leaving Friday28th back Sunday the 30th, just before the New Moon, coming off neaps, might catch a few
wazdog « Wed Oct 19, 2016 2:29 pm » I was at the Daly Crossing on Sunday & Monday night and I didnt see any fish caught!!!! Im not sure where they got thier 10K fish from!!!! and the other 5 fish they say they caught. Just saying.
Agent86 « Wed Oct 19, 2016 2:28 pm » no worries craig.g should be fun there, might go there one day myself
smed « Wed Oct 19, 2016 12:08 pm » Gold bombers were always the traditional go-to lure there. The rockbar is through the cutting before you get to the main billabong. It's located right next to the boat ramp in the 'second' billabong.
Schubz74 « Wed Oct 19, 2016 11:00 am » What type of lures are people using on corroboree to catch Barra? and where are these rock bars in Corroboree? any info would be helpful
craig.g « Wed Oct 19, 2016 8:27 am » 86 wil be fishing challange and camping at bridge lagoon with family
Fish frames « Tue Oct 18, 2016 5:29 pm » Nice gotta give it to him and his partner. Most of us can't catch one. Must be on a honey hole
Jer « Tue Oct 18, 2016 5:16 pm » by the partner of the fella that got one there last year and this year. most probably at the crossing.
Fish frames « Tue Oct 18, 2016 5:08 pm » 10k fish caught at crossing or by the local fella?
Jer « Tue Oct 18, 2016 4:32 pm » Another $10k fish caught at the Daly. Same family.. again.
Marro « Tue Oct 18, 2016 4:11 pm » All good approaches but none worked today. The billabong was dead as a dodo. Did notice the water temp down a degree since last week and water very dirty. Too many boats!
Fish frames « Tue Oct 18, 2016 4:03 pm » Cheers guys. Appreciate the feed back. When slow trolling during day you talking 3-4km/hr speed?
Agent86 « Tue Oct 18, 2016 1:56 pm » whos fishing the Corroboree Park Challenge this weekend, good excuse to go for a cruise and have a beer, might get a tagged fish
dannett « Tue Oct 18, 2016 12:40 pm » Slow troll. Middle of the day when the sun is overhead always seems to work too.
nomad « Tue Oct 18, 2016 9:30 am » Dont be afraid to use 200mm black lures either , night time is much more pleasant though
Gibbsy « Tue Oct 18, 2016 9:06 am » troll early morning or late arvo with small medium sized shallow divers. like little lucifer, bomber and hellraisers. I prefer greens and reds. focus on edges of weed beds and drop offs. When heats up focus in snags, shallow weed beds and lilies using weedless setups. use your sounder and don't troll too fast
Fruity « Tue Oct 18, 2016 7:19 am » Try little lucifers and tigerlily bombers, slow trolled beside lily beds.or weedless reidys with decent sinker.
Fish frames « Mon Oct 17, 2016 6:53 pm » Not asking for secret spots or exact stuff but just wondering how people fish corroboree during the day, I'm not doing the challenge this weekend but I have only done any good at night on the troll yet I see a lot of boats go out during day. Troll or soft plastics during day? Vibes? Etc. cheers fellas and any ladie
jeffish « Sat Oct 15, 2016 2:03 pm » no jabsy ,just LB today , Got acoral trout nevr had one LB before
cnd1963 « Fri Oct 14, 2016 12:11 pm » 4th tag fish caught caly local
dannett « Fri Oct 14, 2016 2:34 am » Bmac on a tide like that there will be a big deep channel out the front of the creek. It will be the only spot with water left in it. Just inside the creek the rockbar I mentioned will be a factor, it comes from the east and immediately after it is shallow on the western bank. Once you are past that creek there is water up to the junction past the wreck.
jersy « Thu Oct 13, 2016 10:33 pm » Hardies Lagoon open for a flick on sunday?
Bmacdonald90 « Thu Oct 13, 2016 10:19 pm » .27 tide should be interesting.
nomad « Thu Oct 13, 2016 5:57 pm » interesting - i always worried about the idea of people knowing exactly where they were caught. still cant eliminate the human element
Richieboy « Thu Oct 13, 2016 5:06 pm » Nomad: Darwin based fisheries team will not catch and release.....qld based team does all the tagging and releasing. The fisheries team may assist in the captures. There will still be requirement for fish to be caught as far as the gulf areas
dannett « Thu Oct 13, 2016 1:02 pm » Any tide but there is a rock bar on the eastern bank which you can see and it extends at least halfway across the creek.
Edo « Thu Oct 13, 2016 10:26 am » bmac have a crack!!
theodosius « Thu Oct 13, 2016 7:01 am » Any tide bmacdonald
Gibbsy « Wed Oct 12, 2016 9:54 pm » No probs tracker like I said just keep an eye out and worth having pressures down abit.
Bmacdonald90 « Wed Oct 12, 2016 9:28 pm » How big a tide do you need to get back out of reichardt creek?
The Tracker « Wed Oct 12, 2016 9:13 pm » Thanks heaps gibbsy
Gibbsy « Wed Oct 12, 2016 8:59 pm » tracker went out to leaders last Sunday. first half of gunn point road pretty good rough in some patches. last half had some pretty bad spots we had to slow down for. leaders road is pretty good
Agent86 « Wed Oct 12, 2016 8:31 pm » Good storm just throu Humpty Doo, a good soak, missed it the last week or so
