With good weather conditions, January will be a good action month.
Our reef fishing has remained nice and consistent. We are still getting a good run of pearl perch, snapper, cod and parrot on our close grounds. This is great to find the quality fish in close as strong currents are a bit of a pest out wide.
Cobia are also on the chew, falling prey to soft plastics and live bait.
As well as the good reef fishing, we have seen our first run of spotted an Spanish mackerel. The Spanish are small at the moment, but the spotties are good size, around 4-5kg.
There are also mahi mahi of good size showing up in the area.
There has been a good run of bream around Carlo Point with live yabbies working very well. I have also had numerous reports of mangrove jack being caught in the same area.
Whiting have been an easy target with very good hauls coming from the bottom end of Fraser Island.
Mud crabs have become active around Bullock Point, just keep an eye on your pots as I have had reports of other people checking them for you.
We have had our fair share of windy conditions lately which has hindered the beach fishos.
The best fishing in this instance, has been down at the lagoon at Double Island Point where whiting and flathead are being caught in the calmer waters.
Let's hope the weather is favourable for this month as I am sure we are in for another cracker of a mackerel season.
