The snapper are turning up and the Mackerel are still around but are thinning out. They are big fella's too so make sure you have the good gear and the right set up. Float baits are best for snapper and grassies with light sinkers and 40lb leader as the heaviest on the inside reefs. The rivers are a great spot to be this weekend so grab some squid and beach worms and nestle back in the sun and catch a great variety of fish. There is a great range of fish in the area as the big bream are moving in. Pike, squid and trevally are fairly prominent at the moment so gear up with some lures for them. The land based anglers are having a field day so there is no better way to spend a sunny Sunday than along the banks trying for a flatty, whiting, bream or trevally.

Try for some Tuna and Mackerel early and drift over the Gneering for some squire and sweetlip. The larger boats have a great opportunity to catch the larger array of fish at the banks with nice pearl perch, snapper and many other species. Offshore has seen a large number of Tuna boated with the reef doing its job. Spanish, school and spotty mackerel are also around the schools of tuna sitting deep picking off unsuspecting baits. The most prominent species caught off the bottom are sweetlip and around 12 mile has been a good spot for mixed bag. The land based fishing has been very comfortable with a few good whiting and the big bream starting to arrive. The beaches have had some good whiting and flathead with a rare few schools of Tailor coming in. I think the Tailor season may be good this year.

We have been blessed with a good variety of fish. Bream, whiting and flathead have been the main fish landed but along the beach there has been plenty of Dart also. Offshore speaks for itself the weather is perfect and the fish are still biting. The variety of fish boated is astonishing. The number one reef fish caught has been the grass sweetlip and the a few nice pearl perch have made there way into a few eskies.
Corey with a ripper of a cod caught out past the Blinker. This beauty was under the 120cm max limit for this species and did it put up a fight. There were 2 boated for the day and a few Jew fish also.

What a cracker of a few weeks we have had. The beaches are full of Dart, whiting and flathead and the bream are slowly starting to show as well. The rivers are cracking with plenty of variety and the Mooloolah River mouth has had some school Mackerel caught on floating pillies.
