Hi all! Hope you had a fantastic weekend, especially all the dads out there who were celebrating Father’s Day on Sunday.
Not surprisingly, our weekend was spent fishing. On Saturday we did a half-day fishing charter and on Sunday we had a three quarter day charter. Weather was good on both days and we were on our way home when the wind came through in the arvies .The north-westerly wind on Saturday made for an awesome sunrise.
We had a strong current setting to the south on the weekend, which didn’t help things but we had a few little tricks up our sleeve that made it fishable.
On Saturday we fished Murphy’s Reef catching squire, pearl perch, moses perch and hussar. The most common fish caught that day were the moses perch. These fish don’t grow all that big but are great to eat.
The biggest fish on Saturday was a 2kg snapper. On Sunday we headed to the Caloundra 12 Mile and caught some squire, moses perch and tusk fish. We also caught a lot of undersize pearl perch and squire.
After a few hours we headed north to the Caloundra 9 Mile, which fished better. We caught snapper and tusk fish with the biggest snapper weighing in at 4kg.
The next few days don’t look good for offshore fishing, with strong south-easterly winds and a large swell. But by Thursday arvo things should settle and the weekend looks good. The new moon is on Thursday so fishing on the Sunshine Coast should be great for the weekend.
