15 Oct – Rowley Shoals

15 October 2016

Back out to Rowley Shoals and this time with a new group from Kilmore area, Victoria. Great mates Andrew, Scott, Shane, Michael and Jamie do a fishing trip away every 2 years and this year decided that Rowley Shoals was to be ticked off the bucket list. The Rowleys can offer a good variety of fishing both styles and species but everything is easier when the weather is good. Sadly the first 3 days of our trip were rather windy to say the least!! This does make everything harder but we still persisted and managed to get a couple of short sessions in.

Thankfully the weather then returned back to its beautiful glass offs that we all love. Then we saw some reel action. Good numbers of Sailfish were about and everyone tagged at least one. There were also some nice Wahoo about but these kept falling off the hooks before getting to the boat. We didn’t have much luck on the Yellowfin but got some nice Bluefin Trevally which was used for Sashimi, Nummus and also battered for dinner.

The popper session on the last day was amazing, large schools of trout smashing the lures and a number of good GT’s were also caught. We finished off the trip with a drift snorkel through the channel. Visibility was great and good numbers of fish were seen throughout. Large Trout, schools of Humphead Maori Wrasse, Flowery Cod and heaps of other species were seen.

Thanks guys, a great bunch, very relaxed and easily pleased, we look forward to seeing you again one day.
