Hi Fisho's, wow we certainly have got a decent drop of rain on the East coast and here on the Mid North coast all our rivers are in differing stages of flood, so now is a great time to post up a blog!
The last month on the Hastings, Maria and Macleay Rivers have been productive but you have really needed to put in the effort to get the results which means accurate casting and intelligent retrieval of your lures. Bream and Bass played the game in the Wilson and Maria rivers with some great mixed bags of these species. Mulloway up river were tough and while we did get a few they only came through persistence and this is one species that will certainly appreciate the drop of rain we are getting now. Down river the water was that clear it made fishing extremely tough, being able to see bottom in seven metres can make it challenging! the good news that is now not the case and with the deep water bream season just around the corner this wet has timed itself well and there will be some spots that will hold good numbers of Bream very soon. A good fresh clears a lot of the covered rock on the bottom and creates perfect spots for the fish to gather and I' m looking forward to vibing some of these spots once we are back into it, Jewfish and bream will be the target. Despite the rain being a pain it will make for better fishing and hopefully we get a chance to finish the Bass season on the Macleay river with a Bang, the weed there has been savage and while you do still catch fish your options become limited, now with the weed being flushed out some of the great snag areas will be back in the game and we know that makes for Happy days!
Castaway has just returned from a 3 day trip to Glenbawn and most of you guys would of seen pics on Castaways facebook page, This was another excellent trip to the dam and We are very excited to be putting together a Guided package to the dam which will include accomodation, food and non alcoholic drinks. Ps Byo alcohol for those who like a refreshment once they are off the water. These trips will be based on a three night stay and there will be full on fishing with sessions based to suit the fishing situation. This option will be on website shortly, you can ring or message me if needing details beforehand,We think this is going to be a very affordable and attractive offer to get you guys onto some of the hardest hitting bass anywhere!
I will be showing some of the gear we have been using of late and will put this in another article regarding product testing there is some outstanding gear to talk about for all you tackle freaks! cheers guys and thanks for reading hope to see you on Castaway
