Well, another year is nearly past and it has been good fishing all year. We couldn’t have asked for better weather, fishing and customers and I’m delighted once again to have been a part of a great year in Rainbow Beach.
Bottom fishing continues to be consistent with a good flow of pearl perch coming aboard and some quality snapper having a good chew, making for great pearly by-catch.
There are still plenty of amberjack around with some cobia in amongst them. Live bait and soft plastics are working very well on most of the pelagics.
Other species we are consistently bringing home are tuskfish, hussar, Moses perch, cod and a few very big red emperor.
December is usually an action month with the return of Spanish and spotted mackerel. Nothing like screaming reels to get all the fishers pumped up.
Last December the bottom fishing was also very good in close offshore.
We would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a big thanks to my clients who have supported us through the year. Have fun and stay safe on the water.Reads: 397
