Brett is still away enjoying a well-earned break, so the report is up to me again this week.

As we make the transition into winter, the offshore bottom fishing has started to ramp up. As the water cools some bigger Snapper and Cobia will move in as there is plenty of bait around at present. It will be worth a look at the 36 and 50 fathom reefs for a mixed bag including large Pearl Perch, Snapper, Tusk Fish and Cobia. We should see some good catches in the coming weeks, keep the camera at the ready and send us your brag photo, we would love to share it here.

Our houseboat customers have hooked some good fish, with Flathead dominating catches again this week. Try the Aldershots Tipplers Passage, Coomera River, Tiger Mullet Channel, Jacobs Well and the Logan River. While targeting the weed beds, keep an eye out for squid, plenty have been caught. Try Plastics and hard body lures.
Some nice Jew Fish, Tailor and Trevally have been caught around the Jumpinpin Bar entrance this week. Live baits and lures will work, best to fish the last 2 hrs of the run in and the first hour of the run out tide to optimize your fishing experience.

Reports of some nice Bream around Short Island and Tiger Mullet Channel have also come in this week. Mullet Fillet, Mullet Gut, Prawns and Yabbies are great bait to target the Bream.

Seabreeze is a great website to access a local forecast

It looks like there is a possibility the rain will move in mid next week. Saturday we may see up to 15-20 knots of SW to SSW winds. By Sunday the winds will turn SW at 15-20 knots. If you have any great catches to report or fishing photos please email them to

Good luck with the Fishing.
