Local Fishing Report: Thursday 2019-05-23


Good workable conditions particularly closer inshore with winds east to southeasterly 10 to 15 knots. Lighter southerly winds inshore during the morning and seas around 1 metre. Tomorrow will have good conditions particularly in the afternoon with winds southeasterly 10 to 15 knots, tending south to southeasterly about 10 knots in the afternoon and seas around 1 metre. The weekends conditions are looking fantastic for offshore waters, particularly on Sunday with light southwesterly winds forecast. So be ready to go! 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.
