Starting out wide, the Spanish don't seem to be slowing up, with good specimens coming aboard from the back of Kingscliff and 9-mile reef.
There's been plenty of jellybean-sized yellowfin out at 9 mile, which have been providing lots of fun for the small boat crews.
If you're after a feed of trag, the Mudhole has been the place to be.
There's still a few marlin out on the 40 fathoms line, enough to warrant a trip out wide and a decent fuel bill.

In the river, there's been some good catches of jewies in the last few weeks, and the action is set to continue as the weather cools off.
Juvenile kingies are hammering bait, and like to jewies, they should only get thicker in the weeks to come.
Bigeye trevally have been on the chew, particularly around Barneys Point bridge, and lures such as small soft plastics and surface lures have been the pick of the offerings.
Flathead anglers are starting to see better numbers of their quarry, and Jupitors Hole and Cobaki Lakes, as usual, have been the standout locations.
There's a few decent bream, getting around, but in the coming weeks we should start to see numbers increasing, and Fingal wall will be a good area to begin your search.

Off the beache and rocks the action is still a bit quiet. Small tailor have been active at Snapper Rocks, and the size of these fish should increase.
A few dart have been taken from Hastings Point beach, but overall it's been farily quiet.

Up in the fresh, bass are still being caught, but the action is slowly fading out as we get into the winter months.
