Monebello GT Fishing

 Hi Everyone

I'm heading to the montys in 3 weeks for 5 days chasing GTs and other topwater species mainly. 

If anyone has any areas they have had good luck or any other tips for that area would be great. 

Below is a good banger I got at the start of the year.

Heading up there in a couple

Heading up there in a couple of months time myself, has been a few years and unfortunately never hit the GT's due to crew wanting to head deep every day.
I did get a couple of hours over shallow water bombie's that were loaded with coral trout in that 700 - 800 size and had an absolute ball.
Will be spending a couple of days doing that again this time and hope to explore using the drone.

 It looks like a awesome place. I have been told about big top water trout in the shallows. 

I dont think it will be hard to find GT over there going on what I've heard. Let hope I get good weather.

 At the bottom end you can get Telstra reception. Can be patchy, especially if its windy.

Yah it's pretty crazy the top water action that can be had on the trout, I was in awe of the fish that would would strike and ended up jumping up on the cabin for a higher vantage point and just watched the guys getting smashed.
I never had reception in all the trips I have done but that was a good thing lol
The Abrolhos and the Montie's would have to be my two favourite places, oh and the Kimberley, and the Coco's haha
