Cold and windy. That’s the prediction thisweekend. Looking at radar image supplied by the Bureau Of Meteorology, sees the weather around Gladstone moving southwest towards us. The south westerly winds making it quite chillyaround the Fraser coast. This is great news. The colder snap should put the winter season species of fish such as snapper and spangled emperor onthe chew, and also the rain should flush the river
and creek systems. The artificial has still been fishingreasonable. Plate size snapper have been getting caught on the flood tides, with the odd bigger one amongst theschools. Spangled emperor and cod have also been taking baits. It will be nice to see the water temp drop another couple of degrees to around 19. This should bring the bigger fish in closer for all you wreck fisho’s.

Large mouth nannygai or scarlet sea perch arestill in droves around Rooneys and the gutters. Remember a combined bag limit of 9 and asize limit of 40cm applies to the sea perch family. They also look very similar toa red bass so make sure you know which fish you have caught as the red bassare very prone to ciguatera. As said, the rivers and creeks are getting a good flush, so we may see a run of prawns within the week. There are some good jew getting caught at night around river heads. A few crabs are still around and the ones that have been caught are full of
meat. The winter whiting have thinned somewhat south ofthe harbour and around Round Island, but seem to be schooling back up off Gatakers Bay and north off Oregan’s Creek.

Tony tells me his boat has bagged out on snapper and spotty mackerel this week. Good catches of pearl perch, reds and tusk fish.

Freshwater Report.
The cooler winds have almostmade lenthals dormant for the time being. Not many reports of bass and barra have come in during the week, although a couple of eager fisho’s braved the monotonous casting time and time again. They were rewarded with 5 bass, the largest 49cm, and 2 barra. Just goes to prove if you are more stubborn than the fish, you’ll comeup trumps more times than not.
