Summer kicked off and all the fish trap owners have been hard at work. The silver oak trees started flowering and this, for the Thonga’s, is a sign that the Spotted grunter are here.

We have been watching shoals of large Spotted grunter moving around the mouth, but they simply don’t want to touch a fly. The bait fishermen are not having any luck either!

Up in the lakes regular catches are being made on cracker prawns.

With regards to game fish at the mouth, there are lots of medium sized Blacktip kingies around, Shad have been caught on north bank and some decent Big-eye kingies been caught on south bank.   

Looking forward to having some GT’s around in numbers again! Come on summer!

Keep them loops tight!
