I’ve had to delete the first forums for some reason they were broken, hopefully this lot will be okay.
We haven’t had a boat for 14 years so we are novices. We don’t know how long the water will be a mess but we are keen to get out for a fish so what is the general consensus in regard to the water settling down? We were thinking Saturday morning.
Which would be better after the storm, Jumpinpin or the Seaway?
The swell is still big in the seaway and will be up for a while yet, but the water should be cleaner if only a bit. Jumpinpin will be extremely dirty due to the large volume of floodwaters from the albert and logan rivers. Its a bit of an unknown at the moment, best thing is to fish baits on the bottom.
I dropped the pots yesterday arv and can say the water was a fair bit cleaner than the day before. Obviously still heaps to go. The tide heights are back to normal on the Coomera. I tasted the water and it was quite salty. I didn’t get a water temp though. I’ll post one tomorrow when I check the pots. (They are very well hidden so i only check em every second day).
Ok the forum seems to be stable now and I have cleared up the board a bit. I still have numerous other issues to fix so bear with me guys. The site is still a work in progress. My boat is currently getting a new motor fitted but hopefully I should be able to get out on the water next week.
