Hi everyone it looks like some cool nights ahead and the winds should remain similar to the last few days with light winds in the morning for at least the weekend.

We will be at the Fishing and Outdoor Expo this weekend - Brothers Leagues Club with heaps of EXPO specials.

Our Mid-Year Clearance sale also starts today with heaps of gear 30% off Sale ends Sunday 31st

The weirs in Ross River continue to produce the odd barra with those willing to put the casts in. Slow retrieves and those using lures and plastics that are a little different in action and look as the run of the mill seem to be getting the bite.
Once again if you are fishing the freshwater sections of Ross River you will need a SIPs permit.

Creeks, Rivers & Beaches
With all the herring in the creeks there has been plenty of Blue Salmon in most of the creeks feeding into both Cleveland and Bowling Green Bays. Try to match the hatch and if possible get your hands on some herring and you should be half way to catching a good feed of salmon.
There continues to be good numbers of Pikey Bream in most of the creeks and rivers around Townsville and the Burdekin. Whiting catches have gone a little quite but with the temperature drop it might bring them back into the creeks. Phillips landing and Alva Beach to the South are known hot spots and the Northern Beaches also great locations to chase these fish. Whiting are the perfect fish to catch with the whole family.
Alex from Bluewater had a ball catching this nice Queenfish.

Offshore & Bay
The bay continues to produce plenty of school mackerel with those setting up a good burley trail and floating pilchards having a great day on the water. Cape Cleveland has been producing some nice Spanish mackerel in recent weeks with those slow trolling baits having good success along the rocky headlands of the Cape and out around Salamander Reef.
The shoals continue to produce Spanish mackerel but the sharks have been playing havoc in these areas off late with good fish regularly being shared with the taxman.
The reef fishing has been red hot with heaps of report of coral trout and red throat emperor being caught from just about every reef system in our area. The shoal fishing has also been on with good numbers of both large mouth nannygai and red emperor being caught using baits like squid and cuttlefish to being caught on jigs and soft plastics. It really has been a fish frenzy over the last week with reasonable conditions to get offshore.
Joey was using herring bait to land this PB fingermark while fishing Cleveland Bay.
Hunter had a great day out on the water catching this nice Coral Trout.
The perfect weather conditions have been a welcome sight, it has brought with it schools of Mackerel and heaps of tasty options. Areas around Cape Cleveland have been particular popular with spearos getting a good feed of Trout, Barra and there is still the odd Fingermark kicking about. Offshore the reefs have been clean and firing with most spearos getting good numbers of BIG trout and RTE. The water is defiantly on the colder side with a 3mm wetsuit being the choice for most spearos, being comfortable in the water is very important to help enhance you overall ability and dive experience, so before your next dive drop into TW and get yourself kitted out in a winter steamer. As always dive safe and never take more than you need.
