THE SOUTHEASTERS are back now but we were a bit spoilt, and had a great couple of weeks of fishing weather, over the school holidays.
The fishing was pretty good too with the reefies on the chew and plenty of mackerel, tuna and a fair number of billfish about.
With the southerlies now, it’s back to the waiting game for a chance to get out wide.
The lake was fishing really well too when we had the northerlies blowing but has slowed a little now with the cooler, windy conditions.
It’s a great moon phase at the moment with the full moon but the wind makes it a little hard to fish where you want, so it’s not really firing as it could be.
There are still some fish getting caught but you have to work for them.
I’m sure they’ll fire up as soon as the winds ease and the nights warm back up.
With the tides getting smaller later this week and over the weekend, the river and creeks will be the places to be if you’re chasing a barra before the closure starts, at the end of the month.
The Proserpine River will fish well but I think it will be pretty busy down there.
There should be a few threadies around too and there’s some good grunter around also.
With the wind, I think inshore and the rivers will be the places to be.
There is a little window of lighter winds for the weekend, so the islands may be an option too.
Good luck if you get out.
