October & November 2021 Fishing Report and Newsletter

The past few months have seen some challenging conditions. Very unseasonal heavy rains and easterly wind flow for this time of year has made the pelagic scene tougher than it should be. Short term pain for long term gain will see the coming months fire up and will be better from the rains.

June & July Fishing Report and Newsletter

June and July brought some tough weather, with this winter one of the worst for wet and windy conditions for some time. We did see a couple of the nice winter glassout days but they were rare. Luckily the fishing on those days was excellent and we saw a fantastic start to our shallow water snapper season, with some big knobby’s landed.

April saw some great conditions for our guests, with glassouts and light winds for the best part of the month. May, on the other hand, brought some big south easterly blows and we lost a few days here and there to strong winds.

I hope that spring will see some better days ahead in these modern times. We have been busy here on the Fraser Coast, and are looking forward to borders opening soon so that our NSW guests can get up here and enjoy some fishing.
