Local Fishing Report: Saturday 2019-05-25


Good conditions today particularly closer inshore in the bays with winds south to southeasterly about 10 knots becoming easterly below 10 knots during the evening and seas below 1 metre. Tomorrow will have excellent conditions with winds variable about 10 knots, becoming west to northwesterly in the afternoon and seas below 0.5 metres. The weekends conditions are looking fantastic for offshore waters, particularly on Sunday with light southwesterly winds forecast. So be ready to go! Wild Thing 2 skipper Nat Turner, fished Sunshine Reef on Monday. Conditions were a bit average with 15 knots of southerly wind and a few rain squalls but that didn't bother our keen crew. We started off catching grass sweetlip, snapper and moses perch then the pelagics came on the chew. We ended up catching cobia, spotted mackerel, longtail tuna and were unlucky to be bitten off mid-fight several times by what we thought were Spanish Mackeral. There's Spanish mackerel feeding over the Jew Shoal. Big longtail and mac tuna caught in close off Mooloolaba. School and spotty mackerel from Currimundi Reef and the Caloundra 5 mile. North Reef had coral trout and quality pearl perch as well as snapper, gold spot cod and Moses perch. Spanish mackerel, tuna and snapper from the Blinker. There were cobia and good longtails and Spanish mackerel as well as nice Red Emperor at Double Island Point last week.
