G'day everyone rain or shine fishing is always fine. Snapper are definitely on the bite, big or small they are a great fight with their distinctive head shakes. The deeper parts around the artificial reef and the bay islands are holding the bigger fish but the shallows are holding heaps of smaller snapper and bream, but make good fun for the kids with about 1 out of every 10 is a keeper. Harrys, the start of Rous, house boat, old barge, Lazarets gutter, drop off at Wellington point, amity rock wall, Dunwich Rock wall and the pylons at Coochie, Potts Point, iron stern, the bottom of lamb, Giants grave have all been catching fish, winter whiting are getting the bigger fish and prawns pillies & squid are working on the smaller ones. The bream are also along the deep water at the Pin close to the sticks along Crusoe Is down to Short island there are also a heap of black bream or called Luderick, school up along kalinga bank, all around short, Crusoe Island hanging on the edge in close to the Coffee Rock or called clay mud. Cabbage weed, or very small prawns peeled you will need a light 2to4kg rod 10lb line a stick float an 1.5m line with one split sinker at 1m down then a short shank size 6 whiting hook, or light gauge circle hook size 1 best, on the last 3hours of the run in then 3hours on the start of the run out, fishing on the edge drifting your float back in to the bank, don't lift your rod up till you see your float go under then lift your rod up not to fast and enjoy the fight. Squid are at their best with Redland bay, Victoria point jetty, Cleveland, Manly, Wellington point, for land base try to fish around high tide as a rule at night fish where the lights are close to the edge as the light will hold bait fish in return will bring the squid. Red beacon at North Eastern corner of Coochie, banana banks, pelicans banks, around all the bay islands, all the whiting banks are holding big squid some are over 1kg they make good eating an exceptional bait to big snapper or jew. Whiting reports from the mouth of the logan, flat rock beside the power lines off the beach at cabbage tree point, along kangaroo island, Wallys gutter, also banana bank & pelican banks, amity banks, maroom, dialba bank, rainbow & Rous are all catching good winter whiting. The banks in the open parts of the bay are holding the numbers with some fisherman getting their bag limit with in two hours and most are double hook ups, squid cut into thin strips are working the best with worms, blood or beach coming second.
Tailor are holding good at the Pin with reports every day for the past month some mornings they are out the front of the bar and other mornings their all the way down to Tipplers and from Short to Slipping sands so all have a chromy ready the birds have been following the tailor. There have been a few school Mackeral coming from amity, Rous and Harrys and there was spotty and schoolies coming from the sand hills all on paravane trolling 4inch spoons some of the spotty were 90cm long.
Jews are on the bite with reports from marks rocks in the logan to the Brisbane river, the pin, sea way, salt works are all getting fish in the 70 to 80 cm but the Bay artificial reefs are holding the big fish with reports from Mud, Harry, Tiwi pearl, Peel & Coochie have all got fish in the15to20kg range.
