The end of January saw us once again winding up our Snapper charters out of Holdfast Shores in preparation for the upcoming 3 day live aboard season. With December being one of the windiest I can remember just getting out became an issue. On the days we could get out the good stocks of Snapper at Tapleys Shoal made for excellent charter fishing. Achieving bag limits of both big and small categories of fish was nearly a daily occurrence. Some days saw us finished by lunchtime allowing us time to target some Whiting.
The weather settled in January and the fishing stayed red hot on the Shoals. The numbers of medium to large Snapper were astonishing providing great fun for all involved. We can only hope the 2015-16 season is as productive.
