November 19: The rivers are still fairly thick with bream and whiting with flathead caught trolling hardbodies and flicking soft plastics. The tides are favourable for everyone to hit the high tide tomorrow. The beaches have a few good gutters and there is an increase of solid whiting and flathead if you can get passed the small dart. Offshore has seen plenty of species caught with cobia, parrot, grass emperor and a few nice red throat as well. The target species in the summer is mackerel. They are improving alot and with the SE winds around they should start to push into the shallower reefs and hopefully a few good catches of schoolies of the rocks at Pt Cartwright. James texted me through a catch from his brother who hit Moreton this morning. I snagged this one trolling a Rapala X-Rap. A good early season Mackerel always puts a smile on anyone's face.

November 21: There were some great catches over the weekend from estuary to the offshore. Mackerel are moving in but have been difficult to target. The recent SE winds will have definitely favoured the outcome of a potential catch. Over the weekend there were a few trevally caught around the rocks of Labalsa Park and the Mooloolah River canals. Flathead and whiting are in good numbers and Golden beach has been the hotspot for them land based. The open beaches had some good gutters last week and a few good whiting and Dart were caught with some good flatties also caught in the afternoons. The dirtier water in the canals have been great for Mangrove Jacks. The upper reaches of the Maroochy and Mooloolaba have been in great form to catch these red devils. Live bait and I recommend the ZMan Diezel Minnowz to target them. Hard bodies have been good in the red or gold colours for them as well.

November 22: The weekend looks like it is finally ready to welcome boats offshore with Mackerel and Wahoo starting to turn up it is very welcomed. The photo below is of Brad Gow. He posted this photo up a couple of days ago in the comments of another report. He has busted a few PB's recently with snapper and he headed to the Banks last week. This Doggy was the prize for this trip. They put up a hell of a fight.
