Red dominates Rainbow
  |  First Published: October 2013



We have had a fantastic run of weather lately with many calm days and plenty of fish.

OFFSHORE

Fishing offshore has been very reliable with most trips returning home with big catches.

All species are biting well with some cracker pearlies coming on board; most getting caught on Berkley Gulp 7” soft plastics.

Real good catches of snapper are still on the list, particularly a few days before the full moon.

Out on the wider reefs we have caught quite a few reds around the 10kg mark and, in the same area, some huge Maori cod.

We have had a treat with some fresh patches full of fish, such as parrot, Moses perch and hundreds of hussar. And you just know that there are going to be some nice reds below them as well.

ON THE BEACH

Great quality whiting have been really active on all the beaches in this area.

Quite a few tailor have also been coming through and they are thick over on Fraser Island.

GREAT SANDY STRAITS

Whiting are also in big numbers in the Straits, as well as the beach. The best catches are coming off the bottom end of Fraser Island on live beach worms.

Bream are also biting well, particularly at night at Inskip Point and Carlo Point.

October will remain another good fishing month with snapper and pearl perch continuing to feed really well. It is also red emperor month!
