Ok,Just a headsup, on the action over the weekend.- Apparently the prawns were good in the Caboolture river, and no doubt people have been into them again today. The pine has been producing. Its funny people report how few they managed,
and 5 minutes later another person says they were in the same spot, and managed a bucket. Nudgee ck was good, The logan has been good as well as Redland bay channel. A few days and they will be outside. You can well and truly see the season has started.

I'm out of action for another 5 to 6 weeks following hernia surgery so i'm hoping for a long season,good old Rosco fixed me up with a nice feed of prawns this morning,good size stuff but can't wait go get the net in the hands again.
Anyone had hernia surgery and got back into throwing the net after 8 week,can it be done?
Cheers

    Mighty Quinn,

    Don't know about hernia op recovery but after having L4 lumber decompression it took a few weeks to recover to walk well enough before attempting to throwing a net.

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    Prawns in the Caboolture River on the last of the run out. Got prawns in most of the spots with some producing better than others. Just have to keep looking until you find a good patch. A mixture of sizes with a good percentage of large.

    Cheers,

    Ross

    Went to try out Nudgee Pontoon this afternoon. Wow, waves were pumping with winds about 30 / 35 knots, pontoon was bobbing around like a rattle train. It was about 3.15pm when I arrived , no one on the pontoon, two boats heading down stream along with couple of Kayaks, good luck to them. Frist couple of casts managed 8 prawns, after that it was 3 and 4 a throw, had to give it a rest after awhile, I noticed a shadow behind me on the pontoon, another person with two knee replacements, game as Ned Kelly.

    He did well but was disappointed he could not throw where I was until I called it quits. The he took over the spot for the next two hours. still getting prawns.

    When I arrived tide was running in, just on high, about 4.30pm or thereabouts tide started to turn, or appeared to be so as the cast net was going opposite direction to the wind.

    Here's a pic.

    They are about.

    I was there too Henry. I got just over 3 kgs for about 3 hours casting (which is just about my physical limit). The prawns were schooling up a bit more than they have been to date. Some schools were mostly small greasies, but others gave me some nice medium, tending to the odd large, bananas. The predicted southerly blew in at 20 knots plus just before 9.00, sending many (including me) running for cover. Looks like it's going to blow for a few days.

    I was there as well then moved up north arm to the green bouy where they started to school up once the tide turned.

    I didn't leave until after 11.00 the wind still had not arrived. I'll go for another look in the morning on the high tide. Wind should be ok for a few hours.
    I have seen what i call phantom schools. Looking good on the sounder but net comes up empty. I figure they are very small prawns and have found tiny prawns that haven't even got any colour in them on the floor of the boat.

    pardon another picture. I tried to post together. However, even when I downscaled the pics they were still too big.
