G'day everyone rain or shine fishing is always fine. Ooh those cold winter snaps & frosty mornings prove a challenge for the non dedicated fisherman, yet the Snapper love it. There has been quite a few snapper caught in the last few weeks but you need to follow the moon faze and tides and location as this plays a big part in catching them. Harrys, mud, peel, and the northern bay has fished well through the day but Potts point Coochie, Canaipa, Russell, slipping sands & giant grave has fished well on dark through the night. I have a fishing journal that I write in every time I go fishing, fish or no fish you write it in and this will definitely improve your catch rate of all fish over time.

Bream have been at their best with good catches from the sticks at the pin, short island, tiger mullet, Jacobs well, Cabbage tree point, little rocky point, mullet gut or chicken gut have been working the best. Flathead are still firing with reports from the mouth of the logan to the pin trolling hard body's works best to locate the fish then once found work that one spot with plastics in all directions trolling the edge of the sand banks in about 2 to 3m of water. Whiting are at their best with good fish from as far as the sand hills, Harrys, Rous, pelican banks, banana banks, chain banks, from Redland Bay to St. Claire, the mouth of the logan to Ageston sands, and the banks leading to the pin. The fish are losing their size as they head south, their in the 30cm north and 20cm in the south. Tailor are making there annual run in plague proportion outside on the close reefs and making it had to catch livies as they bite their tails off and are eating the bait jigs but their coming in though the bars in big schools. Some fishermen have got 20 for a couple of hours all on hard body or spinners, look for the birds and that is a sure sign.

Jewies are schooling up in the bars and slowly making the way up into the smaller Channels and Bays to stock up on brekky lunch dinner so if you have a spot were you have caught them before I would give it a go now. If fishing a hole at about 30 feet anchor the boat back about 20m from the hole so your dropping your line on the edge of the hole as the edge is were they are feeding waiting for a mullet to swim over and bang your on. The Pin, sea way, south passage, house boat at peel, the bank just north of Potts point, salt works, giants grave, marks rocks have all caught fish in the last few weeks.

Squid reports from Manly down to Redland Bay foreshore & off the jettys many at night & have been at their best for the year so get out there you only need to catch two medium sized ones for a good feed of calamari. When cleaning them turn them inside out and cut in to rings so when cooking them they won't shrink and a quick seafood sauce 3 table spoons of Mayo, 3 table spoons of tomato sauce,1 table spoon of sweet chilly, a drop of Worcestershire give it a stir and ready to go.

I hope u can get out over the week, from the crew at Victoria Point Bait & Tackle, Like our page on FB, Frandon Heseltine
