We’ve had an action-packed week here on the Sunshine Coast – and not just on the fishing front. The whales are starting to make their way back down the coast and we’ve been treated to a few sightings of these magnificent creatures.
We’ve also had a lot of curious dolphins hanging around the boat for a “free” meal. We’ve been privileged to see a lot of newborn dolphins cruising with their mums but they have been very camera shy. The ones swimming solo seem to be more photogenic. This pic was taken last Wednesday.
Full day fishing charters have been popular recently and the weekend saw us fishing out wide on the Barwon Banks. We caught snapper, pearl perch, tusk fish, kingfish, amberjack, mulloway, and trag jew. The current was very light and we were able to fish some deep water, which yielded great results. We got some good-sized fish in 75-90 metres and it certainly stretched the arms of some customers.
The best results for the weekend came on Saturday when Tom and the boys celebrated his 30th. Happy Birthday mate. Tom added to his celebration when he reeled in the biggest pearly, weighing 3kg. But the biggest fish landed on the weekend went to Chris with his amberjack weighing 7.5kg. Everyone caught fish and enjoyed the day.
This is a great time of year on the Sunshine Coast and the fishing is great. Our recent spell spell of weather with cool nights and fine sunny days is sensational.
The weather looks good for the rest of the week and the making tides in the mornings should fish well.
