Hope you were out making the most of this weather over the weekend and getting into some good fish. Conditions were superb offshore especially on Sunday and Monday and with the new moon phase rolling over and the fish were on the chew. Hard to believe that it’s winter, warm days and warm sea temps have made things a little tough for catching winter species like snapper but it has kept the pelagics’ on the bite. Species such as Spanish mackerel, wahoo, mahi mahi and tuna are still getting caught in great numbers and even some big trevally are hunting bait fish on the surface and taking our floating pillies and yakka’s.
Don’t know how much longer this will last but at the moment everyone is happy to hear the drags screaming!! Here’s what else has been happening over the weekend
Barwon banks- job fish, maori cod, fusilier, coral trout, moses perch, hussar, tuskfish, red throat emperor, pearl perch, mahi mahi and Spanish mackerel
