Fishing Report January 2018


To all those who like reading fishing reports, sorry for the lack of them over the last year, while i do a monthly report in the paper i have been unable to publish on this site, problem fixed now and will keep regular reports.

So a bit of a catch up on Sept 2017 - Jan 2018.  The last 3 months has produced some amazing fishing with several trips putting quality big Red Emperor into the box and big smiles on peoples faces, some of these amazing big Reds have been 14-15kg fish with quite a lot in the 12kg area.  Snapper in the 6-8kg range have also been common however not in such great numbers, we had a couple of bag out days but thankfully other species have been great.  Pearl Perch have been awesome with good numbers and great size, plenty of days bagged out and many in the 3kg area and several around 5-6kgs which are monster pearlies, have a scroll back thru face book to see photos of all these fish.  Out wide has been full of surprises with Coral Trout to 6kg, large Wrass and Parrot, Husser galore, Cod, Sweetlip, Moses, Perch, Goldban Snapper, Cobia, Tuna, AJ'S and lots of action with Mahi Mahi (Dolphin Fish).  New electronics and searching heaps for new grounds has been working well and it's a big ocean so happy days ahead.

Cheers Mat
