|Yes its the wet season and the chance of a cyclone coming through. So it's usual holiday time for the guides, as suggested by Ian, Dave Bradley runs the best outfit out of Townsville Hinchinbrook area so contact him for best advice. Its the closed season for barramundi but you can't help it if they accidently get on your line so make sure you release them. The permit flats will be a bit of a whipeout given the cloud cover and rain, but a few of my mates have had to stay on family holidays on the resort islands in this area and have been surprised at the early morning and late evening activity on the beach and sand bars from trevally etc. so a walk along the beaches provides a quick flick of the fly rod around structure for mixed species etc. and it also allows you to get back to the family and get brownie points. |
