Fishing Report January 14, 2016

We had 3 trips offshore this week with 1 trip a bit below average but some nice Fish were still landed on all trips. The current was quite strong making it more difficult to feel the bites. Sharks were again to the fore and caused many good fish to be lost. We mainly Fished the closer Reefs where current was a bit lighter, with our main catches consisting of Pearl & Moses Perch. Other species landed included Parrot, Squire, Sweetlip and Maori Cod. Holiday makers have had a Pearler of a week this week, but that looks like being short lived with Strong winds returning for the weekend putting paid to offshore activity. Hopefully next week & leading up to the Holiday weekend we will be back to some more great weather. 

Just before Finishing some of you may have seen the Hay convoy to the Western Qld Drought area shown on the TV News. At the end of the month we have another load of supplies leaving from Rainbow Beach, Tin Can Bay and Gympie area. We are still seeking Donations to fill this load, so if you can help please call below. Any Grocery items, Biscuits, Fruit Cakes, Toys, and Clothes would be most welcome as the drought enters its 5th year-Thankyou.
