Looks like a good weather window might allow a few of us to get up to 1770 next week. Fingers crossed it works out and we can get out to the reefs at the bottom of the great barrier reef again. I am heading off now to pick up the bait and put the fishing gear together. If we get out we should have a good report next week bring it on.

When are you heading up? I might have a boat to come up and join you.

Weather at this stage is looking good.

I would have loved to have joined you but, with some business I have to take care of and weekend already committed timing is not right. I'll look for the next weather window that pops up.

It is a brilliant place to fish and explore. 

Good luck to those that can make it.

I'm jealous. I was up there a couple of weeks ago in the last lull.....well...still blew like a banshee but we just went. 

 

We anchored at fitzroy. Lucky cause one boat at boult was picked up and turned 180 on the anchor in the protected side. Swell just ran over the reef. So food for thought if the swell is up and big tides. Hope it's not for you. 

 

I'll be up there in a couple of weeks again. 

 

Watch the bar. It's straight out now...not round the headland. Caught me out...

Swell and wind is low with small tides we will be right I have a big anchor with lots of chain and rope. I don't like anchoring in Fitzroy not enough reef for protection in the windy conditions.
