The Pearl Perch are on the march.We headed out Saturday and started the day catching a lot of undersize fish and shifted a couple of times till we found where the larger ones were and boated some nice fish around the 3 kg mark.Jay had the Top Catch on the day with a snodger coral trout and 2 pearl perch around 21/2 kg.Sunday dawned with good conditions despite the forecast and again we worked our way through the undersize fish to land a number of good pearlies and snapper for Shannons birthday crew.Top Catch was 2 nice Maori Cod tipping the scales at 4 kg.We ran an evening trip as well and though we caught some good size Maori Cod and 2 beautiful Red Emperor they were just undersize and had to be returned.Greg scored a nice Snapper and conditions were perfect.
Love this Autumn weather!Friday was a 3/4 day to the Caloundra 12 mile in perfect conditions.The 2 Sue’s outfished their husbands who threatened to leave them at home next time and Pat showed her sons how its done with a nice Pearlie at 3 kg.Fishing was steady with good size Tuskies and a couple of nice Snapper.Saturday was a half day in close in perfect conditions again but it was harder to get the fish to bite.Managed to boat some nice moses and pearlies and everyone took home a fish, who could complain with conditions so good.
Have a full day to the Banks on Saturday and spots available
Good bottom fishing all week, Saturdays trip was unfortunately postponed due to bad weather but we snuck out Sunday and fished in close around Currimundi Reef with Joel and his team where we caught some good size Snapper up to the 3kg mark. A lot of juvenile Squire went back, good signs for the coming season. When the wind eased we ran out to the 9 mile reef and landed some good Tuskies and a real nice Spangled Emperor before heading home.
Took Chris and his crew out to the 9 mile reefs today where we caught plenty of fish off the bottom including some nice Pearlies, Maori Cod, Tuskfish, and the top catch of the week, an awesome 8kg Estuary Cod that smashed one of our secret baits… Weather looks good for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Spots available on all trips, give us a call.
A week of weather contrasts this week. Thursday saw us on a full day to the banks. Conditions were perfect with a lot of bait on the surface on the way out. Ellis landed a nice 10 kg Spaniard and Mark boated a magnificent 3 kg TuskFish and a nice green jobfish around 2 kg. The fish were on the bite and wisely the boys only kept enough for a feed. Saturday we finally got Nick and his crew out after a couple of weather delays. We fished the 12 mile and were busy all day. The trophy fish was a nice Maori Cod which tipped the scales at 4 kg! Also caught an awesome Coral Trout. Sunday we did a 1/2 day trip to the 9 mile and conditions were a little rolly so tried to stay in close.Missed a couple of nice runs on the live bait rods and we suspect the Cobia may be lurking. Some nice size Pearlies and Tuskies and a good morning despite the rolly sea. Hope to get a trip together Wednesday so give us a call.
Great to get back out on the water again.Full day out to the Banks on Saturday and managed to hook plenty of fish though a lot not legal.Finished with a good number of tuskfish and squire and a 2.5 kg gold spot wrasse.Couple of Justin’s boys had a big night before and probably regretted it!.Always wise to not drink and limit spicy food before heading out to open ocean.
Sunday was a 3/4 down to the 9 mile and conditions were perfect.Landed some nice pearlies to about 2 kg and again a few nice tuskies.Crabs in huge numbers and we only kept the largest.A good day all round.
Couple of trips on this week and spots available ,forecast looks good so give us a call.
Forgot to add that the egg and bacon rolls have been a big hit in the morning and look like becoming permanent on the menu.
Wind looks to be dropping out over weekend,have spots available on Sunday 3/4,give me a call.
Bad weather ruining our fun! Especially with the fishing so good of late.Did get out on Friday for a 1/2 day with some hardy punters.Conditions kept us in close on the Currimundi reefs.Everyone kept busy with lots of fish but majority undersize which is a good sign at least.Came back with a good feed of Snapper and Tuskies but felt like we earned them.Cancelled rest of weekend and watching weather patterns patiently now!!
Been a good week for us this week.Did a 5 hour trip on Wednesday afternoon and watched the sun go down whilst landing Pearl Perch and Tusk Fish.All on board enjoyed the outing,especially young JJ who was the life of the party!.Colby and Mat enjoyed the trip so much they backed up the next morning on our 3/4 day trip.Again the tuskies were in good number along with pearlies and a nice spotty Mackeral that Mick landed in front of the whole family,he was pretty chuffed!.
2 Great trips that the crew enjoyed as much as the passengers.
Nothing available till next week now.Give us a call.
Full day out at the 12 mile and fish were a bit reluctant to bite but we ended up with a good haul.Had Jeffrey and his crew back for a return trip and Josh top scored with a nice 10 kg Spaniard.Anna showed partner Rob how it was done with a nice 3 kg Blue Maori Cod.Grassy Sweetlip were in good number and size and we cooked up 30 odd good sized crabs.All in all a good day.
Had a great day aboard Nautic Boy yesterday.The weather kept us in at the Caloundra 12 mile area but the fish were on the bite.A nice range of fish off the bottom including a nice Snapper about 3 kg caught by Adam.The 3 girls aboard did well and may have just outfished the boys!!.Everyone enjoyed the day and it was great for Dan and I to see happy faces and eskys full of fish going up the Jetty at the end of the day.
Monday booked out but Tuesday available,give us a call/
