The Mackerel are still around but still a bit few and far between with early morning and late afternoon producing the best and most fish.
This photo is of a 115cm Spainish Mackerel taken in Moreton bay on Saturday morning by Bobby and the Boys, This fish went for a Rapala X-rap Long-Cast lure trolled behind the boat at 6-8 knots.

There have been reports of Dolphin fish Wahoo and Marlin in as close as 8nm due East of Mooloolaba and some tasty mixed bags off reef fish coming off the outside of the Barwon Banks including Pearl Perch, Snapper and some good numbers of Tuskies.
The river fishing has seen some good numbers of Mangrove Jacks getting around with the high tide producing some good fish lately on both live-baits and artificials, there have also been some decent Giant Trevally chasing bait around the river mouth rockwalls and Point Cartwright Rocks.
And along Kawana beach there have been lots of tasty Summer Whiting and hard fighting Dart on the making tide.
Our first photo for today was sent into us by Dylan who caught this Morwong (AKA Slatey) using a Samaki Microjig. These fish aren't everybody's cup of tea, but they are very hard fighting and Dylan did a great job getting him in on light gear.
The second photo is of a beautiful 32cm Mangrove Jack caught yesterday afternoon by Courey from his Kayak that smashed a 3"Zman MinnowZ in Redbone colour and what a beautiful fish Courey! thanks for the picture, now these guy practice almost exclusively "catch and release" only taking the occational fish and with the legal size of Mangrove Jack here in Queensland being 35cm with a bag limit of 5 per person this fish was safely released after a quick photo to fight again another day.

Tthe Moon is in it's First Quarter as of Sunday meaning nice small tides to create run on the deeper fishing grounds. Tomorrow morning is my pick of the best weather and other conditions for hitting the off-shore scene and first light through till around 7am will be my best guess at the major bite time for the day.
Our Photo for today is of Legend Kayak angler Jamie with a Juvenile Black marlin hooked some where near Sunshine reef on Saturday morning, i can only imagine the excitment of hooking a fish like this from a kayak, the story goes that he won the battle getting the fish along side his kayak and then it did one last run and threw the hook "self-releasing" itself safely.
