We’ve had a mixed bag in the fishing haul this week, which keeps everything interesting and provides some variety for the punters.
The wind picked up for the first week of the school holidays and strong wind warnings issued most days last week kept us tied up at the wharf. Fortunately the swell was small and the wind dropped off to make for a beautiful weekend. We did a couple of half day and a three quarter day charter fishing the inshore reefs.
Saturday was the longer trip and we started at Currimundi Reef in the hope of catching a few mackerel. They generally show up later in the year but due to the mild winter and the northerly winds they won’t be far away. We found a lot of bait schools and jigged some nice live baits bud didn’t hook one. We caught a little tuna and some squire then headed out to the Caloundra Nine Mile where we caught snapper, moses perch and tuskfish. No massive fish but plenty of good snapper weighing in between one and three kilograms.
The crabbing went really well over the weekend. Saturday was the best day with 114 keepers, which got everyone excited.

We headed out to the Caloundra Nine Mile reef with half-day charters on Sunday and Monday. We got in plenty of fishing but the whales also put on a real show for us. Lots of mothers and some calves were breaching along with the odd big bull male making his presence felt.
We caught snapper, pearl perch, moses perch, tuskfish and plenty of crabs. Once again the snapper were in the one to three kilogram range.
We reeled in the biggest fish for the weekend on Sunday – a 4.5 kilogram snapper, caught by Dusty. He also got the biggest pearly, weighing 2.5 kilograms. He certainly picked the right spot on the boat to fish from. Well done mate!
With perfect weather, fishing, crabbing and bonus whale watching, the Sunshine Coast, at this time of the year, is amazing. It doesn’t get better than this.
Here’s hoping we get more great weather for the second half of the holidays. The last few mornings have been amazing.
