Hi everyone, Happy New Year! We hope you all survived. So, there is not a lot of reports coming in over the last couple of weeks due to the weather and massive amounts of traffic on the waterways. There are still a few dedicated people getting out to get some decent fish and crabs. Finally, a few good-sized mud crabs are getting caught up in the canals and upper reaches of the creeks. Coochin Creek and Elimbah Creek are producing good size bucks. With the wind and rain, a lot of people have been fishing in the protected waters of the creeks and canals. With the prawns starting to move around, some good Grassy Sweetlip and Mangrove Jack have turned up in the canals, mainly caught on live baits such as Herring and Poddy Mullet. Plenty of Bream is feeding around the mouths of the creeks, a great way to target these are with surface lures like the Bassday Sugarpen. Also, it is definitely worth throwing some soft plastics out. Paul caught this nice little Estuary Cod on a Zerek prawn. Some really good catches of School and Spotted Mackerel are getting caught around the channel markers out in the bay and towards Moreton Island with small slugs and live baits working well. Once the water starts to clear up a bit, I am sure the fishing will improve dramatically! That is all to report for now, remember the shop will remain open through the covid crisis if you to get some exercise or fishing in, so come down and see us. Stay safe, wet a line, and relax.
