Fish starting to move
FISHING has shown a slight turn for the better this week, however the adverse weather has given us time to look at the basics such as our trailers.
For those of us who travel three hour round trip for a days boating, we need to remember the importance of wheel bearings and the lights on our rigs.
Apart from the infringement notice that can be served, reliability and safety is far more important for an enjoyable day.
It’s only about a two hour job but well worth the effort.
Around the grounds.
Moreton Bay is picking up with Mackerel taken in the Rous Channel and around the leads to the Brisbane River.
The southern end of Moreton Bay is also fishing ok with small Grassy Sweetlip and Squire from around the sunken structures of Coochiemudlo Island and Peels Island but be vary mindful of the Green Zones around Peel Is.
In the Jumpinpin area, Chopper Tailor are being taken on “pillies” from inside the Jumpinpin Bar and in the channels around this area.
Whiting and Bream are showing up in the usual spots such as Golden Bank and Slipping Sands and are good fun but remember the size and bag limits. Some Mud Crabs also reported in the feeder creeks but be patient.
Coomera River to Broadwater areas have reports of Mud Crabs in the creeks and Mangrove Jack at night also in these waterways such as the Pimpama River.
Bream and Whiting are being caught in the canals and the banks around the Broadwater.
