With the late neap tides which have shown small difference between tidal movements, we have seen some of the bluest water nature can bring us. The expected drizzle in September really stirred up the creeks up bringing on great fishing. Earlier in the month the jetty displayed some awesome mac action using live bait. The queenies have been all over the poppers, and the GTs cant get enough of a free swimming bait around the pylons. Out past the harbour we have seen macs in their thousands and tuna smashing the surface. There was a tourist that some how fluked one of our spectacular GTs on a little K-Mart special, needless to say it was rather disappointing to us locals. Because Im such a genius, I though I would get down to the jetty an hour early for the school ferry and not bring a rod. The stupidity of my actions lost me the first Tuna school spotted within 20 meters of the jetty. Overall September has been quite an unexpected month with not a great deal of action seen around the Peninsula. Hopefully October will bring me the magic metre barra with the weather really starting to heat up. Until next time, rods in hands. James Arratta On the hook with JAMES ARRATTA The Wagaitear is interested to hear about your fishing wins.
