Weipa

Seen a few pics of the guys in Weipa, none of the Simmster as of yet, although I am sure he is into fish. Matt, Silas were flying up from Sydney to meet Jim in Cairns on Sunday, then head on up to Weipa.

The pics suggest they have not wasted any time.

Matt happy with a Queenie.



Silas with one of their cod species, undecided on whether to kiss it or take a bite from it.



I'll try and get some more information about their adventures, but it is pretty remote there.

Simmster Report

Latest on Jims is that he is having a great time and is out today with Nat Bromhead, one of the top guides in Weipa. I've requested some gratuitous fish porn featuring Jim; just to make us all jealous.

If that queenfish fights HALF as hard as it looks like it will, then I can only imagine what a thrill that was!

I would like to go there with you boys and test some equipment - it seems like the place to do it!

Looking forward to more reports and hope Jim has the time of his life.

That's what I was thinking!! Looks like a cross between a tuna and a bluefish

The Simmster

Sounds as though Jim is having a whale of a time getting into queenies, trevally, tuna and tarpon.

Here are some pics;

Thanks

Jamie,

Thanks for the posts. I get some phone reports on how my dad (JimS) is doing up there, but no pictures from him yet. I'm glad he is having fun, just wish I could be with him. Please, keep the pictures coming.

-Chris

Chris,

Just getting snippets of info from the Aussies.

Fishing Aussie style, or Cape Cod style, or UK style - actually just fishing.

Cyclone Monica

Looks like the guys are getting a light battering from the remnants of cyclone monica http://www.eldersweather.com.au/rada...t=radar&lc=018 It hit the east coast of the cape and moved overland to the west coast and Weipa.

Latest was that they hit the harbour for some queenies (sounds odd but quite innocent I'm assured) and then hankered down from the storm with a well stocked fridge.

Sitting here out the front of cabin 12 with pommy Matt, Jacko, Gomes, Silas and Jim.....Wind picking up now with some decent sticks falling off trees and making great background sound effects.

Look like the storm will cross near Arurakun south of here, I trust all will be fine down there as theyve had a day to prepare.

Pommy Matt has resorted to dabbling a crazy charlie in front of a praying matis and actually got a take !!!!!

Silas and Jim are cooking up a storm inside, the beers are flowing freely, and the wind continues to increase !

Regards from us all
At the moment they are not too worried about running out of beer.

Awesome reports!

Is that second fish with Silas some sort of Triple Tail?

Dave, It does look like one of your triple tails, but I think they call it a reef cod, or something like that.

Weipa Weather report

latest from Nat Bromhead

Quote:
Pretty ugly outside at present...A strong NNW blowing with a developing W / NW swell. ( We've been watching the airport obs as well but they are well down on reality )

Some heavy rain but no where near as much as they would have got south of Aurakun.

Another day inside today - a storm warnings been issued with 34 + knot NW/ers as the storm re intensifies to a cat 3.

A big night at cabin 12....Jacko, Silas and Jim were outside in the pouring rain having casting practice into the gusts at 1 am

I'll get a few pics form the harbour later

Nat

Aussies seem to label all their unknown species as cod... In the U.K we would probably call it a Wrasse!

I hear that the guys survived the cyclone, but were still battling the rough seas. Any other updates out there?
