Big Snapper

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not often we see big snapper generally at Montague Island but this 92cm fish we managed a few days ago out there was a thumping fish for Narooma! Be nice to see a few more of this quality, fished Today for only 2 legal kingfish plenty of undersize ones and a good box of reef fish and flatties, big southerly change here Today which may change things for after Christmas! Wishing everyone a Happy New Year.

We are running two fishing charters daily during the school holiday, morning fish and an afternoon fish. Phone us on 0407 487 702.

Lots and lots of Whales

 

 

 

 

 

 

It has been an excellent season for whale watching with still lots and lots of whales around.

Narooma Whale Watching Highlights include

  • Complete whale watching tour with an experienced guide
  • See large pods of dolphins, which general feed with the whales and often visit the boat to play in the wake. You will find yourself almost being able to touch them. Also see schools of fish, birds and other fascinating wildlife
  • A visit to the largest seal colony in NSW, where you can see seals and their pups up close
  • Our Montague Island and Lighthouse tours include free whale watching, where depending on the tour you can see the little penguins returning to shore at dusk for a complete wildlife experience!

Free Whale Watching with all our Montague Island Tours during the Narooma Whale Watching season from around September to November.

Snapper and Gummy Sharks

Fishing out of Narooma this weekend was completely different to the previous with the majority of kingfish at Montague island undersize and the seals making life very difficult, a change in tactics this afternoon we fished north of Narooma chasing gummy sharks and snapper and it paid off with 3 nice gummy sharks along with unfortunately losing a couple, plus a cracking snapper session with 2 snapper over the 70cm mark the best going 75 around the 5+kg mark along with a bunch of smaller 1.5kg fish not to mention the 40 flatties while gummy fishing! Not bad for an afternoons work

Gummy Sharks and Snapper

Finally with a break in the weather on Saturday and Sunday we managed to get out. Kingfish remain hit and miss at Montague Island, with 1 legal fish around 75cm and a few rats on Saturday, plus plenty of reef fish. Sunday a change of tactics, saw some better quality snapper and 2 unreal session on gummy sharks, with big numbers of gummy sharks in the morning and afternoon trip, keeping a few and realising a couple also. Water temps sneaking up to 18 degrees at Montague Island so we expect kingfish to only improve.
