With a good dosing of wet weather which dumped in excess of over 1m of rain at the end of April it seems we are set up for some electrifying times ahead. This big drop of water goes a long way to setting up the rest of the year.
FNQ has finally kicked into gear with really positive signs of tourists visiting Port Douglas and the fishing has really started to turn it on as well. It seems the wet season is behind us and the seasons have changed.
The March Line Burner is now available! Let all your friends know because we have some very interesting stuff this past month, including great fishing reports from our dedicated team of charters exclusive to Fishing Port Douglas.
As we move into the unknown at this time of year with weather and bookings it pays to fish with someone who has the experience and knowledge behind them to give you the best result. We at Fishing Port Douglas have that aspect well and truly covered.
There's literally no where else in the world where you'll find the extensive array of fishing options available all at the one time and in the one place. Port Douglas is such a place with Game, Reef and River all firing together.
This next month or so is undoubtedly the best time of year to fish the tropics. The rivers and estuaries will again return to producing a lot of different species, the reef will continue to fire and the game fishing scene is on the cusp of some big results.
With second waves of Covid 19 within the country threatening all aspects of life, including another severe economic downturn for the tourist industry in FNQ, we have been fortunate to have seen some activity up north for the moment.
As we enter into the very last stages of the wet season the fishing in the tropics can go to a new level in the coming month. The rainfall to date has been generous enough and we can expect a bit more to fall in the coming month.
Never in all my time since living in the region since 1996 have I seen such devastation to the area with COVID-19 taking a nationwide sweep and decimating us in the process. Only a bare handful of the local population has been able to continue with some normality.
