February and the start of March has shown the true value of the past years rainfall, with abundant muddies in Thirsty Sound along with barra, mangrove jack, fingermark, grunter and king threadfin salmon.
Well done to the adventurous anglers who braved the heat and road to try catching our prize fish and muddies. While we’ve had only a few good flat days of outside weather, with no big boats visiting the area, the estuary turned it on for the smaller vessels. Lures of all shapes and sizes were used but the proven lures time and time again were the Richo’s Lures. There are photos on the website (www.stanagebay.com) so hop online and have a gander.
The road to Stanage is a little rough here and there, but all in all it’s good for an unsealed road so nobody’s complaining. There are plenty of sealed roads elsewhere in the region.
There is a mixed group of holiday rentals catering for every need here, and the local businesses have everything you could wish for in a fishing getaway, so please make sure you use them if you want us here in the future. We supply bait, ice, tackle and fuel locally, with competitive prices, and if you want storage for boats or caravans we can help you with that as well. If you also want to help our Coastguard, allow an extra $66 and join for free assist or tow.

Remember Stanage Bay Marine & Accommodation NEEDS YOU to keep us here, so buy your bait, ice and tackle including crab pots from me next time you visit – don’t carry the excess load as there really is no need.
