Stanage Bay is situated on the northern end of Shoalwater Bay about 200k’s north of Rockhampton Qld. The bay is quite protected with many calm estuaries and creeks. Stanage is a community of professional mud crabbers supplying wholesalers in Brisbane, anyone else would be holiday makers and fishermen (like us). It is supported by a Hotel with grocery and post office as well as fuel all under one roof. Other than that, with a few houses and a couple of impressive mansions that was all that made  Stanage Bay.

Our thanks goes to a great skipper “Gilligan” As far as the charter operators were concerned …they weren’t … we didn’t go back.

Biggest fish for the trip were two Estery Cod (Col 34lb and mine 36lb) and Dave’s  35lb. Spannish  Mackerel .
