Well as the summer months draw to an end, the fishing on the local reefs has started to improve reef fish wise. We’re seeing better numbers of squire/ snapper starting to move back into the shallow waters, along with sweetlip, moses perch, pearl pearch, many cod varieties, tusk fish, trag jew and many more are ripe for the plucking. The mackerel are still here and are so much fun. We have been catching great numbers of Spanish and spotted this year both trolling and floating live and dead baits.
We have also been lucky enough to venture up to Double Island Point a few times for full day Noosa fishing charters (9 or 12hr) where the fishing has been sensational (as usual) with both reef fish and pelagics on the chew. Some days have produced over 50 reefies! Of many different types. Some of our favourites include red emperor, mangrove jacks, gold spot wrasse, tusk fish, gold band snapper, hussar, nannygai, snapper and amberjack. Not to mention the added bonus of mahi mahi, mackerel, tuna, wahoo and many more.
We’re getting excited about the cold transition and a chance to use different techniques to catch some different fish. It’s sure to be a great year of fishing and we look forward to getting YOU involved in the action.
Hope to see you soon
