4 French

 We had a group of visiting anglers from France who were restricted in their options for the dates during which they could fish with us because one of the group members was accompanied by his son who was fishing in the tropics for the first time popping and jigging.
We had suggested that they change their dates as the first 4 days of their trip had very very little water movement and the last 2 days saw the start of the build up to spring tides but this was not possible for them. The fishing as expected was hard, fish not taking lures big, small what ever, the sea conditions were flat calm, and very humid, not good when you need to cast all day. We tried really hard and there was some success each day we lost probably the fish of the trip on day 1 and day 3 when we managed to hook up some really good fish only for them to come off, thats fishing though!!

We did get lucky some times though..

On the last day of their trip we had better tides and as the build up to springs began and this was really the best day of the trip with multiple hook ups, big doggies following and taking surface lures in schools, repeated full blown attacks from GT’s, we even got the biggest fish of the trip a 20kg odd fish this day.
