It was a mixed bag when it came to the weekend weather and it resulted in a mixed catch, including a couple of whoppers and some late season snapper.
We had trips three quarter day fishing charters on Friday and Saturday and a full day charter on Sunday. The mint weather on Friday resulted in a great day and the best fishing for the weekend. We headed to the Caloundra Nine Mile on Friday and Saturday and caught mostly snapper between two to three kilograms. Friday’s charter also resulted in tusk fish, moses perch and a nice blue-barred parrot. Everyone enjoyed the trip and it is great to still be seeing good sized snapper this late in the year.
We mixed things up on Sunday to try and dodge the ordinary weather and started the charter in the afternoon to let the sea settle a little. It paid off for us. While it started out a little choppy, it calmed through the afternoon and the customers wound in a nice variety including some squire weighing up to three kilograms, moses perch and amberjack up to 4.5 kilograms. The catch of the day went to young Jake, who reeled in an eight-kilogram cobia by himself and showed up his dad. I believe they had a bet on the best fish and Jake scored himself $5. Well done mate!
Tomorrow is looking like a good day for offshore fishing and it should fish well in the lead up to Saturday’s full moon. It was certainly good in the lead up to the full moon last month. Head to our contact page and get in touch if you’d like to come out and share in the action.
