I love it when we get happy customers and there were a few pretty excited fishermen this weekend. Our best catch of the weekend was Steve’s 7kg snapper and he was a happy man. He reeled it in at the Caloundra 12 Mile. Well done mate – that’s the way to christen the new rod and reel.
The biggest fish caught was an 8kg gold spot estuary cod. John did well. The cod took a whole slimy mackerel and put up a good fight.
The offshore conditions were perfect most of the weekend, although a bit blowy on Saturday but mostly there were light winds and virtually no swell and it looks to continue that way for a few more days.
With our typical winter weather patterns plenty of big snapper and cod were caught on local reefs. We fished the Caloundra Nine Mile, Caloundra 12 Mile and Currimundi Reefs over the weekend. Currimundi Reef produced squire and sweetlip and we caught snapper, cod, moses perch, pearl perch and tusk fish on the Nine Mile and 12 Mile.
The crabbing was pretty good too and we are starting to see a few whales. It’s good fun. I really enjoy fishing at this time of year.
Let us know how you went this weekend.
