Easter in Hervey Bay

Lyn and Neil spent the last two days of Easter on the water in Hervey bay. The weather was great for a change and the fish were biting. Longtail Tuna were prolific but the losses to sharks was hard to take at times, by Monday morning the sharks were really on the ball, following the tuna schools and taking four out of five fish hooked.

As usual, Hervey turned on some fantastic micro jig action on Golden and Brassy Trevally.  A few unusual jig captures also turned up this trip, a longtail tuna and a bullray spicing up the action!

Here’s a few pictures from the trip.

    Nice on guys. Glad the Bay treated you more nicely this time.
    The Goldens definitely love the light jigs.

    Neil and Lyn great to see you guys got some nice fish and weather the micro jigs go so well around the bay,and yes the bloody sharks are eating well with all the tuna they are stealing,I had some Japanese clients lose quite a few stick baits and poppers a few weeks back,Simon donated a few to them as well.Hope to see you guys back up here again soon.

    Regards Paul
