went out for a lazy session last saturday for the arvo with the misses, her friend and a mate.

managed to snag a few fish close to home, including one nice thready by misses friend.

all i could round up was this measy 55cm queenie and a few other smaller fish.

at least its something for the round, might get out the sarvo for a tuna or two if the wind holds off.

Just wish I could get a fish early in the month instead of on the last two days so I don't have to think about it for the rest of the month. I think most of the fish I posted have come in the last three or so days of each month. making a habit of it. :roll:

And the tuna have been scarce in Darwin harbour. Have seen three schools of long tails in the last month and a bit. Unfortunately I have been at work every time I have seen them. :bonk:

I really didn't want to have to post any entries not landed by me, but all I've got this month is this catch by Ziggy a fortnight ago.
Ziggy's 49cm to the fork Queenie.jpg
I must also admit it was caught the day we were fishing the harbour barra and bream comp, so that might make it ineligible, although it wasn't the target species.

The queeny measured 49cm to the fork and was caught in Middle Arm trolling a small gold bomber over a rockbar on a rising neapish tide.

Gday Matt,
Just wondering with the multi species rounds ,is it the best fish for each species or just the best fish overall ?

Best overall :mrgreen:

I added queenfish to this round because they can be caught in close, fishing out of the wind, after previous mackie round was blown out.

Its best fish over all I think Jeff.

I concentrated on the fish that I thought would give me the most points. I believe queenies are easier to get larger ones in Darwin then tuna so targeted them more often.

In the Billfish round it will be a hard choice because a 2m Marlin will only equal a 1m barra. A bit unfair as a big Billie will be a lot harder to get then a meter barra. Little reward for a harder to catch species I reckon! :roll:I How ever it is possible to get a 3m marlin so I may need the 1.5m worth of points to catch Ponyplay unfortunately. :banghead:

Yeah I thought the same thing cuddles ya got no chance of a 2m short measurement sail which equates to a 1m barra and a 2m marlin will take some catching ;)
Planning on a few trips to the trench this build up . Recon for billy comp;) so maybe able to squeeze ya on a trip just to help ya try beat pony tail :)

I thought this FFF comp was going to settle the best fisherman argument !! Why I didn't enter rather just tell everyone how good I am than have to prove it :)
