Ed note: Darren is one of the charter skippers that operates from a high tourist area, and as such has been naturally impacted quite hard by the covid 19 virus preventing tourists from going about their usual business. If you ever wanted a good time to get a small group out on the water and into some great action, feel free to support your local guys and give Darren a call.

Hi team.Well, as I sit here looking at the well-deserved rain I’m thinking just how long it’s been. We badly need a lot more as well and that is always an indication that this has been an unusual year for weather, which in turn, can affect the fishing if it changes water temperatures enough. What the future summers hold will remain to be seen

The fishing continues to be firing well at all the reefs in the Bay. The water temp is getting up and the majority of the school fish will start to head out a bit deeper now, but there are still a lot of nice fish in close.

As I write this we have just dropped a really nice blue marlin. Nothing like that feeling which is the exact opposite of hooking up, the moment your heart sinks. Ah well, that’s fishing, but great to see such magnificent fish in the Bay.

This run of fabulous weather, and the passing of the major spawning period has certainly changed the fishes attitude back towards eating, with some sizable snapper coming on board from right out deep, all the way into the shallows to around six metres.

Just a quick game fish update. I think this year is looking like a real bumper for the big game species already.
