Local Fishing Report: Monday 2020-01-13

Offshore: Strong Wind Warning for Monday for Sunshine Coast Waters.

Conditions tomorrow will improve through the day with winds and seas 1 to 1.5 metres. Cougar One skipper Nat Turner ran a charter to Double Island Point on Saturday. Conditions were great with a light north easterly breeze and slight current to the south. We had to move around a bit with the fish being a little shy, but we ended up with a great mixed bag of fish including some real trophies. We caught mahi mahi, large and small mouth nannygai, pearl perch, mulloway or jewfish, gold spot cod and moses perch. Sunshine Reef had big Spanish Mackerel to 127cm.
