Windy, but still brilliant fishing
  |  First Published: July 2017



The weather has been a bit windy, but the fishing remains brilliant. Offshore we have had another fantastic fishing month with stacks of pearl perch, huge catches of tuskfish, hussar and Moses perch.

There are plenty of small snapper on the bite. It has been very easy to bag out on these fish and I would say the bigger fish are on their way this month.

Out wide some big red and spangled emperor are on the chew and using live bait is a huge advantage on these fish at the moment.

The beach has been providing the best flathead fishing I’ve seen in years. Soft plastics, hardbody lures and unweighted pilchards are all working well. Nice-size bream and tailor are also in good numbers on the beach.

There has been plenty of action in the Great Sandy Straits. Winter whiting have been as thick as thieves and big schools of longtail tuna have been a lot of fun around Inskip Point.

July is always a great month to catch a fish. Snapper should become very active soon, so it’s time to get out the soft plastics.
