May 5
Lots of boats boats heading out today and word of the Mackerel in close has got me wanting to join them, some nice snapper are expected to be taken tonight on the close reefs with the New moon on saturday we are in arguably the best moon phases for the month, and the rivers have been fishing well for Bream and Flathead and Trevally with dart and the odd Tailor being taken along the top of Kawana beach on Ganged Baby Blue Pilchards first thing in the morning on the High tide.
Nathen has been getting into some great Macks from a secret spot not too much of a steam from the habour here at Mooloolaba. On a recent rip he caught three Spanish and a big Grey that went 13kg.

Morning report: Bait is getting smashed close to the rocks around the headland and from reports it's Giant Trevally and Mackerel doing the damage, there are still a few long-tail and smaller tuna species feeding inside the Blinker.
Afternoon report: The rivers have been seeing some nice catches of Blue Swimmer Crabs in the low reaches and around the mouths, and the Mackerel are certainly running close to Point cartwright and at the Gneerings Shoals, reef spiecies like Snapper Grassy Sweetlip and cod are being caught at Murphy's Reef with best results on the high tide at night with a little burley.
A 24kg Spanish caught on the Gneerings shoals.

Morning report: Now's a good time to chase jewfish off the beach, and Big squid, Mullet fillets and Beach worms are great bait. There is plenty of Dart around with a few nice bream and whiting on the beach as well. The estuaries are firing up on bream and pike. The trevally are thick around the trawlers and in the canals chasing bait fish and the clear prawns around. There have been a few flathead and big whiting caught around Labalsa Park and the Squid are coming on during the night time. Offshore there's a mixed bag of reefies and pelagics with tuna and mackerel the main surface species with big sweetlip and snapper starting to come into the mix.
Afternoon report: Offshore has a great variety at the moment. All marks are performing. Pilly’s and squid are the number 1 baits with slimy’s and cuttlefish a close second. There are some squid being caught around Pt cartwright from boats and on the bank so the time and tides a perfect for them too.
Here is Aaran with a beauty caught on Jumbo Pillies. His says there are plenty more and bigger ones where they came from.

Morning report: If you intend on fishing offshore the late afternoon is absolutely killing it for Snapper, Jew and Pearl Perch. The high tide is making it better for the Spanish Mackerel and Tuna are busting up everywhere off Pt Cartwright. The Sea Rock Ultra Flash and Z Man Streaks are dynamite on the Tuna and reports are they are thick in the 10kg plus region. The Mooloolah River is still picking up some nice Golden Trevally and the Basin has some big Whiting. The Pilot Bream are making their way in but are not thick yet. The Trawler and the canals are best for Trevally and Bream with Labalsa Park picking up the most variety of fish with Bream, Whiting, Fingermark, Queenfish, Trevally, Flathead and many more.
Afternoon report: Offshore is fishing extremely well and there is no need to travel far as the fish are around caloundra 9 Mile, Murpheys and the Gneerings.
