REEL LIFE

Well, with the holiday period over and things starting to quiet down on the water, we have started to see some more fish come in!

Summer holidays can be a hard time to fish and finding a quiet little gutter or creek can be near impossible at times with all the extra traffic out on the water, with things a lot quieter on the water, now is a good chance to find your favourite creek, gutter, hole or beach and chase the many prevalent summer species around the island.

Flathead has been showing up everywhere around the passage lately mostly around the 50cm mark with the occasional 60 to 65cm fish coming in, flathead are a great species to chase this time of year and most beaches, sandbars and gutters will have flathead hanging around waiting for a feed.

Whiting has not seemed to be around in numbers this summer but fishing the beaches from Red beach and around to Woorim has still been producing good catches of summer whiting. Bream are still being caught in good sizes and good numbers, look for areas with deeper holes or surrounding structure such as mangroves, oyster leases, rocks and in through the canals.

Sweet lip has been showing up regularly from the pylons around the bridge and channel markers in the passage.

Jewfish have been a little hit and miss over the last month but are still worth targeting around the deeper holes, bridge pylons and off the Bongaree jetty at night with live baits.

The recent rains have got the crabs on the move through the Pumicestone passage, so bring your pots if your thinking of spending the day out fishing. Offshore we are seeing some school and spotted mackerel around, the occasional snapper is still turning up too.

HOT TIP: Most productive baits over the last month have been worms, yabbies, and prawn for whiting and mullet, prawn and chicken for bream. Pilchard, mullet, and prawn for flathead. Happy fishing from the Tackle Inn crew!
