Snapper on the bite

WELCOME to a wet and windy fishing report from Rainbow Beach.

The wind did actually drop to allow us offshore for three days last weekend, but has recently picked up, making decisions for this weekend difficult.

It will be a wait-and-see for Saturday and this pattern could continue through next week as well.

The fishing over the three days was excellent although Saturday was a bit tougher.

Snapper have again made up the bulk of our catch, and let's hope everyone is complying with the regulations of just one each over 70cm.

Reports do filter back that upgrading does happen and that is disgusting.

Other species landed included gold spot cod to 20kg, moses perch, parrot, hussar, gold spot wrasse and a lot more pearlies than the previous week.

No legal reds were landed but there is a plague of undersized ones out there.

Well, hopefully the winds will abate soon as inquiries have been excellent, and with luck we will get you out there.
