Local Fishing Report: Wednesday 2019-06-12


It's looking like great offshore fishing conditions all week particularly on Thursday and Friday, if you can pull a day off to wet a line it will be well worth your while. Winds today will be Southeasterly 10 to 15 knots turning easterly in the morning. Winds tending south to southwesterly inshore during the early morning with seas around 1 metre. Tomorrow's condition will be fantastic as well, with winds variable below 10 knots becoming northerly 10 to 15 knots during the evening and seas below 1 metre. The Winter Snapper season is off to a good start with good catches on local reefs. North Reef has also had good snapper, sweetlip, Moses perch, cobia, tusk fish and gold band snapper. Jason Mills from Peregian Beach decided to give Hall's Reef a go and landed a 26kg longtail tuna. A couple of spotty mackerel also filled out the keeper bag. Sunshine Reef has had coral trout, snapper, spanish mackerel and a few good sweetlip. Mac tuna and Spanish mackerel around the Blinker.
