Apologies for being off the radar the past 2 weeks, we were enjoying a much earned holiday on the north coast of NSW. We are refreshed and back in full swing and have been fishing the last week. Inshore there are some tuna and mackerel about but the outer reefs have been the go producing a good mix of species from wahoo and mahi on the surface to snapper, pearlies and other reefies from the bottom.
Above is a 6kg snapper caught at the top end of the Barwon Banks on Monday.
Here is what been getting caught over the past few days
Murphy’s and the gneerings– tuskfish, sweetlip and squire
Caloundra 9nm- snapper and sweetlip
Caloundra 12nm- tuskfish, maori cod, pearl perch and the odd cobia
Currimundi reef- spotted and school mackerel and some small long tail tuna
Barwon banks– snapper, pearl perch, amberjack, tuskfish, hussar and trevally
Noosa- cod and long tail tuna from north reef and coral trout and sweetlip from sunshine reef
S/E winds around 25knots for today and tomorrow, easing on Thursday so best left till then for offshore fishing. The next tide change at Mooloolaba is a high of 1.48m at 4:56pm. Our next post will be Friday.
