February 28
Out at Caloundra Wide North and Barwon Banks South have produced some great catches of Red throat, snapper, pearl perch and tuskfish. The Hards will probably be the best place to visit in the wide grounds but those area's are starting to produce some good fish. Look for current changes and any floating objects to chase wahoo, mahimahi and billfish.
The rivers and estuaries are working best at the change of light in the early morning and late afternoons. From mid tide to high seems to work the best. Prawns and baby pillies are a cracking bait to get the variety but cured beach worms are the choice for whiting.
Here is a beautiful flatty taken last week by Megan on a small stip of mullet. The other fish are bass caught at Barambah Dam over the weekend with an early start. What a way to get your first bass with the first one caught at 46cm and the one later in the day at 51cm.

Mahi Mahi and Reef speices such as Tuskfish Hussar Redthroat and Goldspot Wrasse will be amoungst some of the fish i will be targeting this Saturday as we head out to the barwon Banks and maybe even a little further a field, reports indicate there have been a few good catches of tuskfish and Grassey Sweetlip at the close reefs like Curimundi and the Gneerings shoals but early morning is the time to be out there. there have been more reports of some bigger Dart and whiting being taken along Kawana beach with wormsa and small pilchards doing the trick.also there have been reports of a few bigger long-tail tuna in amoungst the bust ups out from point Cartwright.
in the rivers this weekend i would be targeting Flathead with soft plastics early morning and late afternoons and at the turn of the tide as they have been very active lately.
Here's Lindsey with a couple of bullets(Mackerel Tuna) he pulled out of the bust-ups out the front of Point Cartwright.

We got a good bit of rain in most area's along the coast overnight as well which should not only get the Mud Crabs Prawns and esturary Species on the chew but also hopefully improve the off-shore fishing as well.
These pics came from taylor who got some great fish out from Point arkwright a couple of weeks ago, and Phil Sweet got this beautiful speicimen off Coolum last wek, these sort of fish are very active out from our coast at the moment first we have a 850-900m Lon-tail Tuna and next a fair chunk of Mack Tuna of around the same calibre.
