31 Aug – Rowley Shoals

31 August 2017

Graham was on our first trip to Rowley Shoals last year and this year scored the first trip too. This time though he bought along his wife Robyn and good friends Mike & James and Russell & Robyn. We had a perfect weather out and back and mostly for the whole trip apart from just a couple of days of wind. Nothing that stopped us from fishing though.

The group had some great sessions on the reef casting poppers and Stickbaits. Some great fish were caught including Cods, Humphead Maori Wrasse, Blue Spot Trout and Passionfruit Trout. On the outside we caught enough Yellowfin Tuna to put a couple of feeds on the table before the sharks moved in.

There were good numbers of Sailfish around so we had plenty of fun with these. We did some deep dropping for Ruby Snapper for another feed for the table and picked up a bonus Black Marlin for Graham whilst trolling between spots.

We finished off the trip with a channel drift and although the sky was overcast the water was still clear and the reef alive with activity.
