I've fished up around Fitzroy a few times, never worried about tides. We just go when we get a chance, and never come home without plenty of fish. good luck.

    Just come back from up there.  I think it would depend on where you are planning on fishing.  If you are going to fish Pancake Creek or Jenny Lind Creek then the tides would have more of a bearing on that area.  We fished wide of Lady Musgrave Island and although we always catch plenty of fish, I find three days before and after the full moon the best.

    On a side note, the channel at the entrance of 1770 has changed.  You now have to go about 100 or so metres north of where the channel used to be.  If there is any swell running you might have white water to cross .  About 1 1/2 hours after low tide we had about 1.2 m under the boat just outside the end leads.

    I went up 2 weeks ago when the wind dropped off. Same weekend as the fishing comp.

    I never plan 1770. Watch the weather and go when you can.
    I suggest you keep inshore fishing options open. The wind has been solid 30kn+ for 6 mths. The musgrave flyer went out twice in 2 weeks. Even when the wind dropped off the chop was still around. We got 2 days out in 5. The mornings where good but the trip home in the late arvo was bloody terrible.

    The channel has changed. .8m at low tide on the sounder. Basically head straight out now. Don't go near the headland side....very shallow. Drive out to the headland at low tide and walk down and have a look. You'll see the banks.



    BTW if you're interested in stilling alcohol I recommend you pay a visit to the 1770 distillery. Something to do on those windy days.
    John is a wealth of knowledge and has a very interesting past. I could listen to him all day. I asked a million questions and I have a million more. He produces fruit liqueurs using mostly local ingredients. Before you turn your nose up, go and have a taste. They are delicious! No additives. Very clean. Bet you leave with a bottle. I left with 2.  ;D
