I left Cooktown last Sunday to spend Christmas in Townsville with friends. Along the way I'm sussing out a change of cars and real estate so we'll see how far my finances extend.

Not due to be in Townsville until next Monday, I spent the first 3 days fishing Lake Tinaroo with Bill Caracatsoudis. This lake is my nemesis - the the hits I get do not stay connected unless it's catfish smacking my lure. Hence Cam Cupitt (Headland Lures) calls me Captain Catfish, but I seem to only catch them on his lures.

Bill scored a nice metre + barra on a huge Savage Gear soft plastic  in a carp shape and colour.





I got 3 catfish all up on this lure. I had a massive hit and hook up using a large deep diving Mad Dog lure, but the fish threw the hooks when it boiled on the surface.

Still in Townsville and caught up with Joshua Joshg93, Billy Stringer, Richard Lee and Gary Ransom.

Billy and I had a few hours flicking lures last night for not very much. A couple of hits and I landed this little black spot cod on a TBL (Tuscott {- or Truscott?} Brothers Lures) [one of these brothers is the guy from Nic Nac lures from years ago as Billy tells me].


Not much of a result but good to get out and with good company.
