Finally Sunday was not a bad day to at least put the boat to good use and go out,for a look see,south westerly 15 plus was not much fun so north western side of green island where 10 other boats were hiding out of the wind as well ,usual 3 to 4 ft mark of the sand spit and was not disappointed with 12 really nice whiting so happy days for fish and chips tonight,the water was like chocolate milk on the western side and so went for a look after lunch on the eastern side as the wind swung around to the east south east around 10 the water was not much better so turned around and came home i think we will need to wait a few more days for the water to clear a little for the squid and schoolies.
Received a couple of great shots from a friend Euan a good sailor from east coast marina who has taken his lovely yacht up to Fraser Coast and heading north for the school holidays with the family and had set him up to paravane with spoons from the back of the yacht, he caught a couple of schoolies before leaving but i would think this is the best catch ever, up at Fraser Island.

Happy easter to all ,if the weather forcasts are anything to go on the fish in the bay better watch out as it looks like lots of boats are going out for a few days,looking at last couple of years reports the schoolies were getting pretty thick from huybers to hope banks all the way to the front of lazaret and on the other side of the bay at sharkspit and the sandhills ,and looking at the reports there were plenty of spottys down deep as well,the water clarity is improving every day and by the weekend it should be at its best i hope ,as the squid around green left as soon as the water went to mud,there are plenty of squid in the rainbow channel if you are chasing schoolies and spottys around the front of amity to the welsby .the whiting should be in good numbers as well depending where you will be but the two close areas of the small boat channel and the rous should have enough to keep us all happy,so we all should get a feed this easter, so hope everyone enjoys the bay and be careful out on the water as looking at all the boats beeing put in the water at eastcoast marina for the week the marinas should look pretty emty..

What a bay we have and when the weather gods are good its a great part of the world to be in,the fishing in the past three days was fantastic what ever you wanted was there to catch ,the whiting were in excellent numbers and quality in the rous and if you wanted to put a live one out the school mackerel were playing the game we managed three just anchored up cleaning the whiting in 5 ft depth .
The schoolies as mentionned the other day are on a line from green to st helena in 23 to 28 ft of water we managed 4 today trolling back in the area,some nice schoolies as well at harrys artificial as well.and this afternoon on the southern side of the hope bank beacon as well.picked up a nice big yellowfin tuna as well.
the squid are in really good numbers at green island and the squire were waiting for us on friday afternoon,so all in all you could not miss catching a feed over the easter break and when you consider how many boat were on the water it did not bother the fishing.
the rain last week has really turned on the bay and the water has cleared as well so monday being the last of the 4 day break will be a good chance for a feed of fresh fish.

The longweekend seemed to get better today and you could not have asked for great finish to the long week end,the whiting were thick again when you found them in the rous and the whiting master and the bomber dave cleaned up ,the school and a nice spotty on the way out on the northern side of the hope bank and the squid were thick again at green island the boys got inked a few times and it was catch and release time,the water is clearing everyday more and more so autumn winter months we should be having lots of fun with the fishing in the bay.
