YK Light Tackle Slam & Fraser

Game & Leisure Boats Gold Coast

Updated now with 2 more reports:

Report from Tony Carpenter on deck of Hellraiser overnight. Tony says they have their favourite CookTown couple onboard, Russel and Monique from the Lure Shop.

“In their typical style we opened the account with our first fish of the 2019 season with a solid 850lbr for Monique today. No strangers to the big ones Russel also caught the first big one for last season within a few days of this one!”

Unfortunately no photos in the wet weather conditions.

And report from Michael Umback who fished Fraser Island Saturday, Sunday and Monday in his boat Foghorn.  Michale said he went 4-2-1 fly fishing on the shelf Saturday bringing a stripe to the boat on fly it through the hooks while trying to leader it. He also teased up 3 blues and hooked one but didn’t stick for long. On Sunday he teased up one little black outside 4mile but it didn’t switch to fly. Then he switched a big mahi on fly on the shelf but through the hooks also after a few big jumps behind the boat
On Monday he fished light tackle outside  teasing up 3 little blacks and catching one on fly. Michael said the light tackle grounds looked awesome with all the birds and bait!
