Stay up to date with the latest fishing reports, best fishing spots and tide times for the Bribie Island and Moreton Bay areas.
It has been good to have such great weather over the past few weeks; the Island has been very busy with different events occurring. The fishing has been full-on with lots being caught throughout the passage and on the surfside. We are seeing a lot of dolphins playing and frolicking in the passage, while they are about chasing a good feed we don’t get to catch much.
However, if you head up the surfside, we are seeing a lot of Mackerel, Flathead, Dart, and Whiting at the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Lagoons you can try the campsites as well. Our local angler was at Lime Pocket getting a good feed of Sand crabs they are also in the Passage and at several points in Bellara, Bongaree and Sandstone Point, we have also seen mud crabs in Ningi creek, Toorbul, Gallagher’s campsite, Donnybrook, and Banksia Beach Canals.
The flatheads are on the bite at Poverty Creek, Bellara, Toorbul, and Bongaree we had one angler catch an 80cm Flathead off the jetty. The passage is certainly the place to catch a feed of Bream and Squire and the best places are Turners Camp, The Ripples, Red Beach, Ningi Creek, and Poverty Creek.
The Bird Cage in the shipping channel is proving to catch some good size Mackerel. The winds have come up over the past few days making it very difficult for any fishing. Just remember when fishing and netting on the Bribie Bridge make sure you take your rubbish and please don’t leave any dead fish and eels on the roadway, place them back in the water.
The weather is looking pretty good for the upcoming weekend, so if you mention this add we will give you a 10% discount on all purchases over $20 at Gateway Bribie Adventures. Make sure you go and see Nev our Master Baiter at the shop for all your fishing and bait tips.
Best time to catch crabs Crabbing 1-2 hours before high tide all the way through 1-2 hours after high tide the water will have good movement and this is when you have the best chance to catch the crabs.
