Hey guys,

Just thought I'd post from a trip to the bong last weekend.
As I had promised a mate to take his cousin out to try and get his first Barra.
Left home at 12:30am sunday morning. Got out to coroboree boat ramp at 1:40. Nice easy launch and we were off into the chilly night with thermometer on the Prado reading 15 degrees at the ramp.
Luckily we rugged up.

Started in main section of the bong trying to target larger fish.
Well long story short we found them, but they had lockjaw for our offerings even though they were feeding.

We trolled big b52's, big ass b52's, standard b52's, X raps, large Strada terras, classics both shallow & deep, large soft plastics 5inch, 6 inch and 7 inch at varying depths tried all the colours. Even spot locked and dropped a large range of plastics and vibes on their heads. All for them to stick their nose up at our lures.

After giving it a good 5&1/2 hours following large fish and schools of fish. We have up on the bigger fish at sunrise and focussed our efforts on the Lillies. We worked zmans minnows and frogs in the Lillies resulting in a lot of rat Barra, plenty of Saratoga and some tarpon. All were small until one stretch of Lillies where I landed my zman at the base of some pandanus and it was crunched before I even got to start retrieving it. A few mins later wrestling the fish and mate weed, came out a nice size Saratoga. This was fish of the day.

Even though we didn't get the big Barra we wanted. Was a great trip, great weather and got some good screenshots. Off the water at 1.


Cheers
Gibbsy

Very fickle Matt gonna give it another crack later this year but take some deeper profile soft plastics to match the tarpon they are sitting on. All the bigger zmans we ran are a closer profile to mullet than tarpon or baby Barra.

I headed to SWA yesterday and things were very quiet. I got this QLD groper that was about a meter and a couple of rats. Plenty of small goldies around so that looks great for the future.

Short harbour trip in East arm today awesome weather. Pretty slow going managed two legals and couple of rats. Spotted alot of good size threadies around the joint that refused placcies and all.
Water temp 26.2 in creek. Mate finally got himself a legal so he was chuffed. 3 inch plastics slow rolled worked a treat again.

Cheers

Did a couple of trips in the harbour in the last week, Thursday - launched at Dinah Beach, I couldn't believe how full the car park was. I wanted to try something different and fish the flats near Bleesers creek. I gave up on that idea after Matt Wrights V8 air boat did a few laps around the area. So I pushed up into Bleesers away from the noise, not a lot of action in the drains, on the first of the incoming tide I managed to find a couple Jacks and a fingermark on the same snag. All between 35 and 40 cm. Pulled the pin and got back to the ramp before the hordes returned.

Today I explored a creek new to me, Cossack Creek in East Arm. Once again very little action on the last of the outgoing tide. Plenty of bait fish about. On the incoming things looked more promising, a few big splashes of salmon working bait/prawns against the bank, not interested in my lures though.
It was about time to head back to the ramp and take a donut for the day, stopped at a drain on the way out that I'd fished earlier, looked very fishy, had to hit it again. Third cast, bang!! Undersize Barra. Happy with that I called it a day. Better than sitting on the couch at home.
