Fishing Report – December 18, 2020

Hi everyone, the last couple of weeks have been a little slow, now that we’ve had some rain I expect it to get better. Still plenty of Whiting with the flats around Sandstone Point, Red Beach and Woorim producing some good catches. Live blood worms are by far the best baits. Drifting for these across shallow banks produces the best results. There’s been quite a mixed bag lately some really good Painted Sweetlip have turned up along the edge of the passage. Big Dan got this quality fish on fresh squid through the week. A few grassy Sweetlip are getting caught around the pylons of the Bribie Bridge and the odd nice sized Estuary Cod caught mainly at night. Floating Herring, strip baits and fresh squid is doing the trick, going as light as possible with the sinker depending on the current. Plenty of Mackerel around the channel markers as they seem to be feeding on small Frogmouth pilchards with the top and bottom of the tide being the best times. Buckley’s Hole has produced a few Flathead, walking the flats with soft plastics on an incoming tide and some big eye Trevally caught on surface lures have been taken there as well. Looking for last-minute Xmas ideas? Head down to the shop, we have all new Bribie bait and tackle fishing shirts and rod and reel combos, so you best get in before they are sold out!. That’s all for now, remember to only take what you need and please throwback all undersize fish and crabs. Hopefully, you get time to wet a line and relax.
