Bermagui stripes and Port blacks, blues

Barra fishing 30mins from Cairns

The stripe bite seems pretty consistent at Bermi and the reports are starting to come in now too!  Not quite firing but getting there!

Tony Spiteri is fishing The Joker out of Bermi and reports some good striped marlin action the last couple of days off the bait balls. Tuesday he went 3-2-2 and then followed up again yesterday with another 2 from 2 from a bait ball with about 4 fish on it.

And Red Hot Fishing Charters’ Simon Rinaldi is up at Port and tells me they tagged 3 on inshore blacks 25kg up to 60 kg  on Saturday. Simon says the water hasn’t been great inshore but it coming good now. Yesterday they spent the day chasing the blues and the water temp reached 28 deg (!) and plenty of bait around. A good day could of been better if they stayed connected to the 4 hook ups – alas only one tagged.

Update from Thur 17th – Fishing Thursday again Simon reports a 2-2-2 on blues and 1-1-0 stripes with things are starting to look better at Port!
