It's that time of the year again when we start gearing up for what is a fantastic and fun week of activity at the Moreton Bay Trailor Boat club for the Moreton Bay Fishing Classic. Mossops is again proud to be involved again and the registration details will soon be released. If you've never had a crack at the classic I'd personally recommend you get involved with plenty activity on or out of the water for the whole family. It runs from Sunday July 16th till Sunday 23rd July 2017, and there is more info here: ... ssic-2017/

On the fishing front, yes it's getting chilly but at least there's been some decent conditions to get offshore. There's been some great catches right around the south-east.

Well a bit of rain predicted for the weekend but next to no wind for the next four or five days looks very promising on the fishing front.
With the cooler weather the Snapper have well and truly shown up in good numbers on all of the artificial reefs in the Bay with fresh Mullet fillet being the best bait. When using Mullet fillet make sure you are generous with the amount of bait you present to the fish as the peckers will have you baited in no time.
Fishing with a 4/0 Snell rig is a preferred way to fish for Snapper in water depth to 10m with as little weight as possible and the weight sitting on top of the hook. It’s recommended to use a fluoro bead above the hook to protect the knot from being damaged by the sinker and also attract the fish.
In deeper water a two hook gang and a running sinker with a light sleeve over the top of the hook (instead of a bead) is preferred. You can also add a lumo sinker to your rig as a bit more of an attractant.
Good catches of Bream have been coming from the shallows around the foreshores of Redland and Cleveland Bay with half a Baby Blue Pilchard and Mullet gut being the best bait.
Squid have been caught off all of the local jetties and the foreshores of Manly and Wynnum. The Yamashita jigs have proven very popular over the last couple of weeks especially the warm jacket with the rattle and the IKA jigs also proving popular - especially at 3 for $20.
Try for Jewfish in the Brisbane river and West Peel artificial, Threadfin Salmon have been caught in good numbers in the Brisbane River both from a boat and land based.
Fishing the Port of Brisbane in a boat has been very popular and land based fishing the ferry terminals at night has seen some good fish caught using vibes and soft plastics.

Parrot on the Sevens, Snapper and Maori Cod at the 29s and 32s, reports of Jew in the shallows off the Moreton coffee rock. Deep Tempest has fished well for Snapper early morning on the making tide.

For the latest fishing report tune into Nugget on Logan 101 FM Saturday from 6am
