Prized snapper caught around Kawana

Hi there anglers,

We have been blessed with a few good days this week with the wind and swell at a low. The weekend will be rough but the shoreline fishing should still be good. The fresh rain has stirred through again but is clearing by the day.

With offshore this week it has been great. There have been some prized snapper caught. There are plenty of squire caught around all the marks off Mooloolaba with the Gneerings and Murphey’s the best places for reef fishing. In along Raper Shoal and Currimundi have been good little hiding places on the high tides with some nice parrot and grassies boated.

The Mooloolah River hasn’t been heavily fished recently. The fresh water has stirred things up a little with some crabs around there is no harm in trying for a seafood buffet. The bream and garfish are starting to move in and with big bream already been landed. The Mooloolah River mouth has been the better destination to go for a great variety and some nice sizes caught as well. With plenty of fish like school mackerel, bream and grunter landed it is easy to say it’s a great place to go fishing. The basin is still an easy destination to fish with trevally species, whiting and flathaed caught on beach worms, small pillies, herring and pipi’s.

The beach did have a few good days in it but has since slowed. The usual suspects are there though with flathead whiting and Dart. You may pick up the chance to land a nice Jew with persistence and a little bit of burley pellets to scent the area the key I think. The gutters aren’t forming well at the moment along Buddina but Currimundi does have the odd good one there. Live beach worms, squid and mullet fillets seem to be the best baits to be using this winter.
