    Took the boat out to Mackies tonight. Fished from 6.45 til about 7.45. Saw some fish but no takers between the 3 of us so went up river and did some spins in the jet boat to kill my boredom :shock:

    Upriver this morning, the river is now crystal clear again. Didn’t see anything where I was (apart from the remnants of an old salmon carcass) but talked to another fisherman that had lost one and seen a few others heading up.

    judging by the immaturity of the fish being caught it looks like we will have an extended season. very fresh fish coming in and they are real scrappers.been a good weekend.

    Hi Burkefish – any good sized ones taken on the week end? Most we saw seemed to be in the 10 – 14lb bracket.

    a couple were in the 17-18lb range, 1 really large one was lost the guy couldn’t stop it. these smaller fish are turning out to be real fighters, stripping 60+ metres in run, the krill seems to give them more energy. noticed the flesh colour is almost red. 13 at macintoshs to 2.30pm today, all areas got fish.
