Gday all, Im back and so are the fish I hope. The month of May had plenty of downs and disappointments with barely any fish being caught off the jetty or in the creeks. Even the weather has been a letdown with rain half way through the first month of the apparent DRY season wetting the inside of my car and everything that was left outside. Although there is some light at the end of the tunnel with June in full swing now and hopefully plenty more action around our local areas. I did manage to snag a few very lonely queenies off the jetty hitting mainly live bait with the very rare one coming up for the poppers and cromies. The barra went almost into complete shut down, only landing a few rats at the high tides at noname and 2 fella. Until next time rods in hands. James Arratta.
