Rainy weather great for the Crabs.

With the recent on flow of patchy rain around the coast is has given the rivers a much needed flush, which will see the majority of the bait fish concentrated in the deeper divisions of the river towards the mouth. Species such as mangrove jack, Jew fish, mixed trevally and your bread and butter species will follow the bait source towards to mouth. Fishing your rising tide in this instance will produce greater results due to the better water quality being flushed back into the river. The one benefit to all this run off is it will have the local crab population packing up house and on the move, this makes it the perfect time to load the crab pots up with some fresh mullet and chase a feed. A quick reminder that there is a maximum of 4 pots per adult and a 6x6 white float with all details must be attached. Patches of prawns will also be a possibility over the next couple of weeks so make sure to keep an eye on the sounder and a cast net handy.
Heading offshore; finding a break in the weather may be a little tricky however if you manage to do so areas to try would be Coolum reef, Arkwright shoal and the blinker. Blue clean water is the key for palagics so if the dirty water is on the closer reefs focus you efforts on the bottom. Good quantities of bait will be holding on the closer reefs which will draw in quality reef fish like trout, sweetlip and snapper. Micro jigging has been the flavour of the month, accounting for some quality captures, the relatively new Palms slow blatts and TT Vector jigs doing the damage, although the old faithful floating pilchard is always hard to go past drifting out the back.
The beach fishing has been relatively slow over the past week being dramatically affected by the weather conditions, however due to the severity of the conditions it has opened up and created some very nice gutters, which should start to produce some quality fish. with the new moon and dropping swell there will be an opportunity to chase larger model Jew fish as they reside to these deeper gutters and holes, big slab baits being your best option.
