The last opportunity that was had to venture off shore some nice Snapper, Pearl Perch and Amberjack caught on the 29's - best bait was Pilchard, Squid and Mullet fillet.

When using Mullet fillet be sure it has nice white flesh as this is a sign it hasn't been scaled in a commercial scaler and the flesh has been bruised.

Spanish Mackerel at the group, reports of Cobia at Hutchinson shoals and Spanish Mackerel as well in the same area.

Trolling the current lines for Black Marlin and Dolphinfish has slowed but still reports of fish being caught.

The wave rider buoy has had some Dolphinfish on it early morning and reports of Mulloway in the shallows at Moreton Island.

Sweetlip and Parrot at Peel Island - the secret of catching Sweetlip in the shallows at Peel Island is to use Mullet fillet or Prawns as bait. With the Mullet fillet make sure you use a generous amount of fillet as this will assist you with being able to cast and for the bait to float through the water column without using a sinker.

Sweetlip are scavengers and this method produces a few under size fish hence the generous amount of fillet will always give you a chance to have bait on your hook when the bigger fish comes along.

Spotty Mackerel have been at the Hope banks and the inside of Moreton Island, Diver Whiting at the sand hills and the Rous Channel. Longtail Tuna are in the same area they have been hard to get a bite.

The Brisbane River has been fishing well for Jewfish and Threadfin Salmon - live Mullet and Soft Vibes worked vertically have been successful. One thing to be mindful of when fishing the river is the 30 metre rule away from all of the docks and ships. The rock wall at the mouth of the river is a good option before the sun gets too high in the sky to fish for Snapper with soft plastics.

One of my favourite is the Z Man 4 inch Curley tail in Baby Bass colour. Work the plastic horizontally to the wall where it meets the sand for the best results.
