For sport fishermen, this remote and wild stretch of water remains unexplored. But that's about to change when Australia's famed Nomad Sportfishing Adventures spends a week starting Dec. 9 exploring new waters. The 80-foot cat mothership Odyssey with its attendant fishing boats (from 18 to 36 feet) will be making the trip starting in Torres Strait and moving down into the northernmost reaches of the Great Barrier Reef. The timing was chosen for December’s light winds in the area. The list of anticipated species is far too long to list here but will include giant trevally, dogtooth tuna, yellowfin tuna, wahoo, billfish, coral trout, Maori wrasse, narrow-barred Spanish mackerel, longfin tuna and red bass (snapper).
