Hi everyone, with a lot of the freshwater from recent rains clearing in the passage, fishing has certainly picked up. Recent reports have been very positive. Plenty of Chopper Tailor has moved in the passage as well as a few Mackerel and the odd Longtail Tuna. These can be caught with floating live baits or pilchards. Lots of Flatheads are turning up around Buckley’s Hole, drifting the flats with strip baits or trolling small hardbody lures. Also great for land-based anglers wading the flats on an incoming tide. There has been a lot of Longtail Tuna out in the bay and off Woorim Beach, small metal slugs and a high speed retrieve are working well on these. The Bribie Bridge is starting to fish well some nice grassy Sweetlip, squire and Mulloway being caught live or fresh herring have been the best bait. The winter Whiting season is approaching, some nice catches are showing up around the southern end of the Island, live bloodworms is preferred bait for these. Plenty of Bream in the canals, fresh prawns, Mullet fillets and hardiheads are producing some good Bream. Plenty of mud and sand crabs around the stretch in front of Sandstone Point. It has been great for the sand crabs and the upper reaches of Ningi Creek and Elimbah have seen some nice mud crabs caught. Hopefully, with a bit more clearer weather and some nice days coming up heading into winter we should see some great catches coming in. Anyway that’s all for now relax and wet a line.
