10 points for your creative heading!!!! This time of the year most defiantly plays host to a little more wet weather... But, you haven't really experienced 'Topical North Queensland' until its been raining...Especially Raining FISH :-) It makes for an even better experience when you can leave with a little more knowledge then when you came, and its great to...

Thanks to Nick and Jesse for a fabulous fishing adventure. The first night we were caught out by a sensational tropical storm but we did it all again a few nights later and the fishing was amazing. Huge catch including a trophy Red.

Rob put us straight onto some nice big mouth nannies and then a quick move for some small mouths and a few coral trout. A couple of the other guests were getting bites but couldnt land anything...
