Consistent bottom fishing
  |  First Published: April 2017

We are continuing to enjoy reasonably good weather, allowing for a few offshore trips.

Bottom fishing continues to be fairly consistent, with snapper and pearl perch making up the majority of catches. We haven’t had to travel too far to round up a great feed of fish.

Large estuary cod and cobia have provided some full-on entertainment and a bit of an arm-stretching. Live bait has tricked these guys.

Other nice reefies being caught in close are tuskfish, Moses perch and hussar.


Whiting are still the prominent species being caught off the beach in the shallow drains. Out the back in the deeper water, some quality dart are on offer.


Mangrove jack are still on fire as the weather remains hot and steamy. They are being caught everywhere, from right at the boat ramp all the way into all the main creeks.

I’ve had mixed reports on mud crabs, but I reckon things are fairly good considering we have had no rain.

All up, April is a great month for fishing and last year we did quite a few trips with great results, especially on pearl perch and coral trout.
