Get on the water before the holiday rush!

The weekend is near & that means it’s time to start planning your next fishing trip & with Easter holidays set to kick off next weekend it is a great time to get out before the increase in boat traffic from holiday makers.

The neap tides this weekend should provide a great opportunity to fish areas like Bluff Reef, Teebar Ledge or the channel between Inskip & Fraser Island.

With reports of mackerel being caught around Inskip point it will be worth packing a few heavy rods & floating a couple of pilchards. When fishing for mackerel a wire trace is important however keep it as short as possible approx 6” long then use a heavy mono or fluorocarbon leader.

The reefs inside the bay should be fishing well for squire, sweetlip, cod & parrot. With the small run in the tide you should be able to use smaller weights. Remember the low light periods around dusk & dawn will often produce the best results when fishing in these areas.

There has been some cracker whiting being caught lately up around Tinnanbar & Ida Island with baits of squid, worms or live yabbies working best.

Snapper Creek has been firing well with several reports of pelagic such as trevally & mackerel being caught. With plenty of bait schools in the creek it is worth throwing the cast net or jigging off the pontoons around Norman point.
