Cool temps trigger bites

We certainly felt the cold snap this week with inland temps getting below 1C! For those of us on the coast we got down to around 6C and with westerly winds made for cool daytime temps. A plus side of this is that there has been increased activity for the tailor anglers. The bigger currents and higher tides saw baitfish …

Anglers adapt to changing weather

What a mixed bag of weather we have seen this week. From crazy winds, swell, no swell, rain and clear skies, light westerly winds and a great day for all. SE QLD sure has the ability to throw a few curve balls when it comes to weather so trying different styles or locations can keep you fishing rather than wishing. …

Lead up to the moon

Many anglers will have favoured moon phases and tide times to go fishing. Without doubt the lead up to the new moon is a great time to go fishing as a dark moon is thought to produce a morning bite window. It is also thought that predatory fish can hunt under the cover of darkness vs a full moon where …

Big winter wet brings opportunities

What a change in the weather! From light winds, no swell and clear sunny days to big rain fall, increased swell and swollen rivers. Although this may sound bad the reality is it can be some of the best fishing, especially after a few days of calm. With the rains filling up the estuaries this sees the Noosa bar flush …

Bigger fish on the horizon

Well there had to be a break in the amazing conditions we all experienced last week. With the run up to Friday’s full moon the weather closed in and despite the rain it was a glass out day. A few anglers made the trip offshore to fish during the perfect overcast conditions. This time of year bigger fish will become …

Feeling the seasonal change

These last few week’s we have really seen and felt a change in the season. We now have cold evening temps below 10 degrees and mid 20 degree daytime temps. This has seen the sea temps drop to low 20 degrees and with that the tuna have pretty much gone from the local waters. Big Spanish mackerel continue to patrol …

Finally the weather winter is known for showed up this weekend. With calmer seas, westerly winds and low 20 degree daytime temps this is fishing at its best! Offshore conditions allowed anglers to head both far and wide and with the tuna and mackerel still hanging around it was on for most. The tides were less strong during the day …

Cool times and hot fishing

With winter now upon us we are starting to see the winds tending more westerly which as predicted has cleaned the water up offshore. Conditions have also calmed down and despite swell on the bar the offshore conditions have been quite pleasant especially during the week. For those heading out the species list has been varied especially after the full …

Roll on winter!

Well that’s the end of autumn and with May behind us let’s hope the next few months turn it on weather wise. There weren’t that many opportunities the last month for the offshore anglers. We had a few great weekends but the swell and persistent strong winds really prevailed. This really highlights the need to become adaptive and maybe try …

Blustery conditions keep anglers inshore

As expected the wonderful weather we had last week/weekend faded away to blustery mid-week conditions and a rising swell. Prior to this change the bite was definitely on, especially as we pushed toward the new moon. It was a little quiet post moon but anglers in the know reported good fish and a nice mixed bag. The ocean temps are …
