Strong Wind Warning for late today in Sunshine Coast Waters, in the bays and close inshore behind the breakers, will be okay with winds south to southwesterly 20 to 25 knots, reaching up to 30 knots south of Maroochydore early in the morning. Winds turning southerly in the late morning and seas 2 to 2.5 metres. Tomorrow's conditions will begin to ease back with winds southeasterly 15 to 20 knots and seas 1.5 to 2 metres. Befor the strong winds the following fish were caught. Keen local angler, Nathan Greig took home a monster snapper, off Mooloolaba at one of his favourite reefs on Saturday. Jet ski anglers, Rob Grace and Mike Duncan picked up a 9.8kg longtail tuna and a 10kg Spanish mackerel while trolling whole garfish baits around the Hall's Reef stretch on Sunday.
