Fishing running hot over holidays

Surprise surprise the weather man got it wrong!

We had great weather over the Easter long weekend, with the only exception being Good Friday with only a few showers through the day.

The fishing was red hot with diver whiting in good numbers around Ida Island through to Tinnanbar.

Baits of live yabbies, worms or squid have been giving the best results.

Golden Trevally have been active in good numbers as well with Snapper Creek & around Norman Point producing well.

There is still the odd mangrove jack being caught in the creeks although night sessions have been the most productive.

After recent rain the mud crabs have been plentiful & packed full of meat.

Looking at the weekend ahead the SE change moving through will see the wind increase to around 10knots for the majority of the day.

If you’re looking for somewhere to escape the wind try the channel between Inskip Point & Fraser Island.

The next few days we have the neap tides meaning it will be a good time to hit areas like Bluff Reef, Teebar & Seary’s Ledges.

Try for cod, sweetlip, squire & parrot. tcb1

If you’re after a feed of squid then try working the areas east of Norman Point south towards crab creek.

Currently the boys are leading in our battle of the sexes comp for April so ladies make sure you drop by & weigh in your catch.

Have a great weekend & stay safe on the water.
