Offshore: Pretty good conditions today particularly early with winds northerly 10 to 15 knots turning northeasterly in the late morning and afternoon and seas are around 1 metre. Tomorrow's looking okay but could be a bit choppy with winds north to northeasterly 10 to 15 knots turning easterly 15 to 20 knots during the morning. inshore winds tending southeasterly in the morning and seas around 1 metre, increasing to 1 to 1.5 metres offshore during the morning. 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.

Mark Horton Stephens Bass Borumba 

Marc Horton-Stephens, caught this bass early morning on Lake Borumba with his son while fishing the lake’s sunken trees, sinking Berkley Gulp Minnow grubs and winding them up quickly. After a cracking battle, this beast was boat side and measured 48cm to the tail. Released to grow bigger!" see,
