Hi all! How awesome is the Sunshine Coast weather? I hope you’ve been enjoying it. We’ve certainly been making the most of it and getting in some offshore fishing. We went out for a full day charter on Saturday and a half day charter on Sunday. On Saturday, we headed out to Caloundra Wide and caught a bit of a mixed bag including snapper, pearl perch, fusilier, gold spot wrasse and tusk fish. The Venus tusk fish were certainly chewing and the biggest we reeled in was about 2.5kg. These fish are excellent eating quality and one of the most beautiful fish in the ocean. Everyone got onto at least one.
We spent Sunday inshore, fishing the Caloundra Nine Mile reef. Squire and pearl perch were caught with one pearly weighing in at 2kg. It’s a good size for a shallow reef and was hooked on a Zman sea bass soft plastic – a colour that also works really well on the snapper. We spotted a few whales, which added to the excitement and the weather was perfect. I couldn’t think of anywhere better to be on days like this.
The weather at this time of year is very stable, which is great news for fishing and it and should stay like it for another couple of months. If you want to get in on the fishing action, give us a call and book a trip.
