Red Emperor The Prize of Fishing The Great Barrier Reef
Fishing the outer Barrier Reef for red emperor will give the angler a great work out, fighting you all the way to the boat, but nothing will prepare you for the magnificent sight of this brilliantly marked fish specimen as it shimmies towards the surface towards you, in the crystal clear water of the Barrier Reef.
The red emperor are with out dout a very handsome fish, the prime adults frequent the deeper waters and channels during the cooler months from May to September and can reach a credible 40+ pounds (20 kg) with reports of over 30kg.
Red emperor colour ranges from a glowing salmon pink to red, its pink fins tipped in bright crimson or red, and three distinctive darker red bands sweeping up its face, pectoral fin to back and down again to the anal area.
In keeping with its magnificent appearance, red emperor eating qualities on the table are no less legendary.
Red emperor will usually congregate in large schools of similar sized fish, and once the anglers have been hooked up to several fish, the school can be kept in the vicinity by the fishing activity. More commonly caught at night, charter operators in the 1770 area on The southern Barrier Reef have locations where these prized fish can be caught during daylight hours, and most often guarding there whereabouts.
Heavy hand lining techniques or jigging rods are suitable and the standard dropper rig preferred, fresh fish or squid baits work best and hook sizes matched to the target fish. Excellent eating qualities, and quick bleeding and icing down will preserve them at their best until back on land. Size and bag limits do apply.

Agnes Water often called Agnes Waters and it is common for Lady Musgrave Island to be called Lady Musgrove Island and Captain Cook to Captian Cook and Capitan Cook or Captan Cook, with the Town of Seventeen Seventy now known as 1770 that would be hard to misspell for anyone. The correct spelling of Bundaburg Queensland, is Bundaberg.
