Local Fishing Report: Tuesday 2020-02-11

Offshore: Pretty good conditions today particularly early with winds northerly 10 to 15 knots turning northeasterly during the morning. Winds inshore northwesterly about 10 knots in the morning and seas are around 1 metre. Tomorrow's looking great with winds northerly 10 to 15 knots turning northeasterly during the morning and seas around 1 metre. It will be worth fishing along the line where the dirty water from the estuaries meets the clean ocean waters, where the fish could be feeding. Spanish mackerel, yellowfin tuna, sweetlip and maori cod from Sunshine Reef. Hall's Reefs have been producing spotty and spanish mackerel. Spanish mackerel from Currimundi Reef. Spotty and spanish mackerel from Coolum. A few good reef fish including the odd coral trout, snapper and sweetlip along with spotty and Spanish mackerel from the Gneerings, Caloundra 5 and 12 mile.
