OFFSHORE – Spotted mackeral are still on the chew in good numbers all the way up the coast. sunshine, perigian, coolum, reefs all producing fish. spotties also around inner gnerings and old woman island . the boys getting the spanish this week have been slow trolling livies and slimies a bit deeper.
Nick from TOP CATCH CHARTERS has been getting the punters into dolphin fish up to 22kg some great wahoo to 12kg. the 9 mile and banks have been a little patchy for better reef fish but the parrot are still getting hooked. the banks are crawling with under size red throat emperor its great to see but remember the legal size and bag limit for these fish is 38cm and a limit of 8 per person. seems like the pelagic fish is your better option. for any charters call nick from top catch charters on 0429 013 012
