Meteries at Peter Faust

 




Hi Col & Karen,

Hope the Reidy's Team had a safe and happy new year?

Shandelle and myself decided  to exit Darwin before the big rain, making our way down to Airlie Beach with boat in tow . As you know fishing Peter Faust Dam (Prossie) 40kms from Airlie is one of my favourite fishing locations. We had a couple of great fishing sessions with the stand out lure being the BIG BOSS pearl white, with a proven track record over the past few years for us. It accounted for all the fish caught over the magical  meter mark. Anyone that has fished this dam knows the fish go hard and never give up (Spartan Barra) I call them. All the larger lures used were upgraded with DECOY  3/0 owners hooks, a far heaver hook, but did not compromise the swimming action of the big boss/big Ass lures. There was one particular day after some heavy rain the dam had about 10 foot of dirty water on the top. With big Ass at a very slow pace letting them float to the top at times, accounted for some great fish and arm breaking strikes. We had a great trip, great lures, hope you like the pics. 

Cheers Mick & Shandelle
