It has been a mixed couple of weeks on the weather front, lots of unseasonal northerly wind plus rain at times and even earthquakes? But we have seen some pleasant days’ in between as well as some warm sunshine, and have been doing a mixture of ½, ¾ and full day charters. Some reefs have been fishing reasonably well and others have been a little quite. The inner reef belt covering places like the gneerings, Murphy’s, Caloundra 9nm and 12nm reefs are producing some quality big fish but it’s only for a short period on dawn and dusk. Out wider on the banks and Caloundra wide we are getting big numbers of fish but the size is a little smaller which is a bit unusual but that should all change with the lead up to Saturdays’ full moon.
