Weather

Been a few weeks since we last checked in.  And what a fortnight it has been.  I have seen more rain during this time than in the last 30 years.  Monsoon type rain.  Flooding throughout the region.  Boats sunk no matter how many times we bailed.  Just brutal conditions.

Weather – friend or nemesis

As we wind down towards the end of the season we continue to meet new guests each week.  Fishing last week was blazing hot, and then came weather.  Temperatures plummeted into the low 40s with rain and fog.  Since then over the past few days the fishing has been incredibly slow.  Sometimes it takes a …
