Hi everyone, slow on the reports again I know but it's off season here in Darwin now and with the build up it's putrid hot and sticky on the water. The fishing is still good but the tourism activity is quite as is the case also with the build up to Christmas. I'm normally in South East Queensland at this time of year so it's a learning curve as to what business will be like up here this wet season. The humidity certainty isn't affecting the fish here's what's been happening over the last few weeks.
