FISHING TAILS: Mackerel still out and about
FOR offshore fishing this week you'd better be quick and get out today if you can, with a change in weather due tomorrow.
The mackerel have been around in numbers still, with more spotty mackerel in at the closer marks up and down the coastline and out around the islands.
Spanish mackerel have been holding wider as usual, with a few good fish caught out 25km plus east.
A few grunters have been on the bite around the pinnacles area at night and also a few nannygai have been spotted surrounding marks to the north-east.
Estuary fishing will be the place to be this week as strong winds and smaller tides are forecast.
Keen anglers should be hitting the estuary for fingermark, mangrove jack and salmon by working the rock structures through the tide with good live bait or lures.
You'll find certain parts of the tide are better for this as sometimes it can be the last of the run out and other times around high tide.
A few crabs have started to show up in Coorooman Creek but they're not great quality yet, while the port is producing some good crab at present, with multiple reports of 10 each for the day.
The Treehouse Tavern Family Fishing Club will be holding its 2015 club presentation day and Christmas party from noon to 4pm on Saturday, December 5, at the Treehouse Tavern in Cawarral.
