Happy Easter to everyone around the world !!! Hope your weather is better than we have had here lately, it has been raining and blowing for almost a month, with no days fishing, but lots of surf.

The surf has been extremely consistent the last month, with days on end of double overhead surf, and a few days even bigger. Have had some of the best surf in northern NSW and the Gold Coast for nearly a decade.

On the fishing front, not much has been happening at all, just finished all the interior varnish and waxing, and getting ready for next weekends Gold Coast Game Fish Club heavy tackle tournament. Fishing is Friday and Saturday, and the forecast is for nice calm winds, so hopefully that will eventuate.

After that I am heading to Florida on the 22nd of April for a month, so let me know if you want to talk at length about coming to fish in Cairns this season.

Have the trip north booked for Mackay to Cairns, and can do the trip from the Gold Coast out wide thru the outer southern reefs up to Mackay late July early August if you are interested.

Cairns dates are coming along well, with a few people to see when I am over in Florida to confirm dates. If you are interested in fishing on TRADITION this year, please email me.

Have a great Easter with your families, and talk soon.
