With Brett away on annual leave the fishing report this week has been left to me. I am sure he will have a story or two for everyone when he returns.
After all the rain last Friday the weather gods certainly made good for the remainder of the weekend with plenty of sunshine to dry everything out.
One on our tackle shop customers Bryce picked himself up a nice sized Bream just over 34cm on Saturday morning in the Coomera River adjacent to or marina. It appears a bit of fresh water has the fish on the bite. We have had a great week of low winds and are now expecting some westerly changes to arrive during the week.
With the Westerly winds on the way it is prime time to chase Tailor both in the Broadwater and off the beaches of Stradbroke Island. We have seen the number of fish and the quality getting better during the last 6 weeks. For beach fishing you will find a large number of gutters scattered along the length of South Stradbroke Island, they will all be worth a go. Try to fish the incoming tide as the gutter fills up the Tailor will enter the gutters chasing bait fish. Good schools of Tailor have been working the bait around the Jumpinpin Bar, North Bedrooms, Canaipa Passage, Gold Coast Seaway, Crab Island and Currigee Channels are all worth a try. Either Dawn or Dusk is the best time catch a feed.
The Houseboats are still reporting some nice Mud Crabs and Sand Crabs on the chew in the Coomera River, Tipplers Passage, Jacobs Well, Tiger Mullet Channel and the mouth of the Logan River.
I hope you have a good week fishing, until next time, regards Mike.
Being up to date with the rules and regulations when fishing in Queensland is very important if you are looking at keeping a feed of fish and crabs. We do recommend you take the time to be well informed on how big a fish should be, bag limits or what crabs you are legally allowed to keep before you go fishing. If you follow the rules you will have a great day out and look after the future of fishing, don’t get caught out. We recommend you follow the link to Queensland Fisheries website to view current regulations. http://www.daff.qld.gov.au/fisheries/recreational/rules-regulations
You can pick up a rule book from us at Coomera Bait & Tackle free of charge.
