June saw some great snapper fishing with some quality fish being caught by our guests. Targeting big fish over 80cm is something that I really enjoy this time of year. Snapper fishing is certainly a change of pace from our usual pelagic species and that first run from a snapper is something special. We have been targeting snapper on a range of techniques, soft plastics have certainly proved the most effective with soft vibes, micro jigs and lucanus jigs also getting some good results. Matched with our Stella/Terez charter outfits, guests have enjoyed working their lures on top quality gear. This makes the experience of landing a big snapper that little bit more special.

This winter has seen some wetter than usual weather for us on the Fraser Coast but it looks to now be stabilizing into our usual winter pattern. Snapper will continue to feature throughout July and August along with big golden trevally, cobia, mackerels and winter longtail tuna.
We do have some availability left over winter, if you are looking for a quick get away from the southern states Hervey Bay is certainly the perfect location to do this. We can package up your accommodation using one of our preferred accommodation providers taking the stress out of planning your next fishing getaway. Please email us for rates and dates.
