Local Fishing Report: Friday 2018-06-08


Best to stay inshore early today while conditions settle down, with winds southeasterly 15 to 20 knots decreasing to about 10 knots in the late evening with seas 1 to 2 metres, decreasing to 1 metre around midday. Tomorrow conditions ease right back with winds easterly 10 to 15 knots turning south to southeasterly below 10 knots during the morning and seas below 1 metre. Looking like great conditions all weekend with lighter winds a seas forecast, so keep your fingers crossed and as conditions are right be ready to go to Sunshine and North Reef where they have had coral trout, Spanish mackerel, yellow tail kingfish, snapper and grass sweetlip and also a few cobia. Snapper, pearl perch, nice tusk fish and cod from Caloundra 12 Mile. Snapper and sweetlip from Caloundra 5 mile. Jew and sweetlip from Currimundi. has had good snapper and cobia showing up.
