There has been an unseasonal run of bream brought on by last month’s rain.

The Logan and Brisbane rivers are producing the best catches however they are being caught in most waterways.

There’s also been good numbers of whiting caught on sand areas, the best catches have come from the Nerang River around the Council Chambers and Ageston Sands in the Logan River.

Flathead have been best towards the mouth of most waterways and close to bar entrances.

Trolling lures around canal estate rock walls has turned up mangrove jack, estuary cod and a few trevally.

There are a few prawns around, mostly school prawns but a few bananas were found in deeper holes in northern Jumpinpin and southern Bay areas.

Mud crabs have been a little illusive, best catches have been in the upper reaches of rivers and creeks, however there has been no sand crabs of any numbers reported.

There has been very good numbers of mackerel in the Bay, most have been around Green and Mud across to South Passage.

Fishing the bottom around artificial reefs has turned up mainly small snapper, nothing big reported.

Offshore the main target is still mackerel although catches were down this week with most people struggling to find any numbers.

There’s been a lot of small black marlin around, many being hooked by those chasing mackerel.

Fishing the bottom has produced small snapper, Moses perch and tuskfish and there are still plenty of dolphinfish around, most hanging off beacons and FADs.

In the freshwater catches are improving, especially in Hinze and North Pine Dam.

Catches in Somerset and Wivenhoe have still been a little slow, the secret has been to find the bass on your sounder.

There’s been schools of small fish in very shallow snags and rocky areas, still no numbers of yellowbelly from the timbers in the Stanley River arm.
