Rainbow Beach Fishing Report

Werner from Gympie with a nice snapper

After some great snapper fishing in August, that species has become a little harder to locate. Fish in the 2-3 kilo range have been coming onboard which are the better eating size anyway.

The 5kg fish and over went off the boil, but maybe they will spawn after this moon in September.

Pearl perch have been one of our main catches, mostly from the close and mid-range reefs. Parrot have been another popular catch and if you can drift over the wider grounds they are in good numbers.

Moses perch cod, amberjack, sweetlip and lots of hussar, have made up the catch. Pelagics have been a bit quiet so far although we have come home with a few longtails. Hopefully the dolphin fish will turn up in October.

Till next month good fishing and stay safe.
