1770 – Flat Rock – Dart, Perch, Flathead – 15 May 2016

Sunday Sunday was my second morning at 1770 and the weather looked like it was going to be pretty good. The wind was forecast at about a 7 knot southerly on dawn and would pick up a little later on. The moon was 67% full in its waxing gibbous phase. Low tide would be atContinue reading “1770 – Flat Rock – Dart, Perch, Flathead – 15 May 2016”

Brooms Head – 3 October 2015

Saturday On Saturday we were heading back to Brisbane. The looming thought of returning to work forced a right turn at Brooms Head. This coastal area in the Yuraygir National Park is a land-based fisherman’s paradise. There are plenty of estuaries, rocky headlands and beaches to choose from. You can catch all the common species; tailor, kingfish,Continue reading “Brooms Head – 3 October 2015”

1770 – Flat Rock – Dart – 7 April 2015

Tuesday The family took off for Lady Musgrave Island to have a look at the reef. But the prospect of ninety minutes battling high seas had me close to throwing up so I dropped them off at about 8.00 am and drove back down to Flat Rock. The sun was out when I arrived andContinue reading “1770 – Flat Rock – Dart – 7 April 2015”

1770 – Flat Rock – Slatey Bream, Dart & Stripy Perch – 6 April 2015

Monday I managed to persuade the family that my beloved 1770 would be a good place to spend some of the Easter school holidays. Fishing was strictly rationed, but I did get a few sessions in. We drove up from Brisbane and passed through some monster storms on Sunday. We visited Cooks Monument and walkedContinue reading “1770 – Flat Rock – Slatey Bream, Dart & Stripy Perch – 6 April 2015”

1770 – Getaway Beach and Tom’s Creek – 3 December 2014

Wednesday Wednesday was a beautiful morning but a disappointing one, from a fishing point of view.  I was still at 1770 and I decided to walk round from the beach that has the desalination plant intake to Getaway Beach. There is some really fantastic looking fishy terrain along here but apart from small dart andContinue reading “1770 – Getaway Beach and Tom’s Creek – 3 December 2014”

1770 – Wreck Rock – 2 December 2014

Tuesday Once again I apologize for not writing up my fishing reports sooner but Christmas got in the way.  This one and the few that I will publish over the next few days, are from early December 2014 – better late than never. I managed to get a few days off in Gladstone in earlyContinue reading “1770 – Wreck Rock – 2 December 2014”

Thursday morning – I got up at 4.15 am and drove from Brisbane up to Bribie looking forward to a good fishing session. Low tide would be around 6.40 am and although the forecast was for moderate West to Southwest wind, it was pretty flat when I arrived. I decided to start off under theContinue reading “Bribie Island – Buckleys Hole – 15 July 2010”
