There’s lots of bream in all our river systems. They are in the lower reaches and the bigger ones up to one kilogram are being caught at night. You should find sand crabs in the Mooloolah River around the Coast guard station.
The next low tide is at 9:31pm and at 9.27am tomorrow.
Weekend fishing on the Sunshine Coast
We had half and three quarter day fishing charters across the weekend and reeled in a variety of species from the inshore reefs.
The afternoons were perfect with winds at five to 10 knots and small seas. The odd squally showers came through in the mornings but it didn’t stop us fishing. We caught squire, pearl perch, tuskfish and cobia with the most success on Saturday.
The making moon and small tides over the next week to 10 days should create good fishing conditions. The coming weekend is looking good with good light winds, small seas and just a few showers predicted for Friday and Saturday.
Lots of moses perch were caught this week, on all reefs. This one, caught by Ross, weighed just under two kilograms and was 48cm long – quite big for this species.
There are plenty of squire hanging on the inshore reefs. The biggest, caught by Ken at Murphy’s Reef on Sunday, weighed three kilograms.
We’re in the middle of whale season and we’ve spotted quite a few of the ocean’s giants on recent trips. Check out the videos on our facebook page to see footage of them up close: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=676226905726158.
