QLD Fishing Report

Plenty of sunshine and moderate winds is what anglers have had recently which has allowed the keen ones back out to the inner reefs and shipping channel. Trout and sweetlip from the spurs of Chauvel, Coles, Prince and Alarm reefs while those who had marks on shipping containers and the like out in the shipping channel did well on largemouth nannygai, red emperor, and cod, once again sharks had anglers moving around so as to maximise catches. Flat fall jigs with double assist hooks had it over the bait this time. If we get the weather to hold the Beverley Group of Islands of Sarina presents good anchorages so well worth an overnight trip for trout, sweetlip, Spanish mackerel and queenfish of Double Island. Inshore, the water clarity from recent rain is on the improve however a bit more improvement will see us return to the trevally, cod and mixed bags that we are use to. While the dirty water is still flowing out of the creeks it’s still worth a trip into Constant, Murray, Reliance, Sandy and Rocky Dam Creeks for a feed of king salmon on strip bait or soft plastic reflextion lures or Yakamito soft vibes, favour the darker colours. Don’t be afraid to use those lures around the snags while on your salmon hunt as the mangrove jack are on the move. Keep the crabpots working, there’re still good numbers around the mudflats. While there’s a metre of water over the weeds in Kinchant and Teemburra Dams get the frog lures out and give them a swim, barra love them.

Good Luck.
