2015 Gulf barra fishing week 1

Col and Kylie joined us for our first full week barra fishing out of Weipa for 2015 – and their first time fishing with us. Col and Kylie are members of the Mooloolaba GFC and own their own boat so are very comfortable with long stints on board and both absolutely love to fish. It was so lovely to have another fishing couple on board again who just enjoy fishing together!

The fishing started off on a high with some 50 odd barra released between Col & Kylie (and Luke guiding) on the first day. Throughout the rest of the week it was pretty consistent with some really nice quality fish caught (and lost) and the number of thread fin salmon this year (which we rate as up there with barra for taste) is amazing. On the way home we did some bottom dropping for several really good size fingermark (golden snapper) and plenty of mackerel, cobia and even a dolphin fish!

Thanks so much for your fabulous company. Looking forward to having you back next year!
