Hi all, the weather the past 2 weeks has seen the return of our S/E trade winds which can generate some choppy conditions. However the pattern has been working out for good conditions on the weekends and we have seen some great fishing. The outer reefs have been firing, we had full and maxi days’ booked over the weekend and it fished well. Species caught were red throat emperor, tusk fish, fusilier, Maori wrasse, yellow fin and skipjack tuna, gold spot wrasse and mahi mahi. The biggest fish caught was this 9kg mahi mahi caught by Ian on a live yakka float lining with a balloon. Well done mate!!
The best eating fish would have to go to the red throat emperor, I’m a big fan. This one weighed in at 2.5kg
The crabbing went well too, everyone got a feed to take home. Overall a good weekend, we caught fish on the surface and on the bottom with lures and with bait. The Sunshine Coast has shown her better side this summer and it’s good to see everyone enjoying it. If you would like to join us on a trip or charter the whole boat head over to our contacts page and give us a shout.
