Haven’t posted In a while so thought I’d throw up a quick report. Fished the Moreton bay classic two weeks ago with a few mates. Weather was good for most of the week and got plenty of time out on the water and very little sleep. Most of the week consisted of very little sleep, waking up in the middle of the night, trying to piece together a decent game plan or heading to the grounds before others arrived. Although a multitude of specie categories were available we decided focus efforts on snapper and tuskies as we thought this would be our best chance.
We fished hard and spent most of the time on tuskies. After three days of persistence I finally raised our first and only bluey which at 9.5 kg had put us at the top of the leaderboard. This victory was short lived though as only 20 mins after I weighed in somone else we know weighed in a solid 11 plus kg fish. After this we decided to focus on snapper and got a few fish around 90cm with the heaviest going 6.1 kg which is pretty light for that size, and it seemed most of the snapper weighed In were also pretty light for big fish. I think the biggest snapper was only around seven kg.
In in the end I was pretty stoked to take second In the tuskie category,( along with a custom built rod brand new reel and a tackle bag for prizes too) and can’t wait to learn a bit more about these fish and chase them again next year. Throughout the week we got plenty of tasty by catch from sandies to squid and grasses and was just good to have a week off of work with mates doing what we enjoy. Here’s a few more pics and hopefully another report soon if the weather holds for 1770.
