Mat with a nice gold spot cod
July has been a great month for Rainbow Beach Fishing along with some nice weather. Close in reefs have really picked up with consistent bag outs on squire, snapper and pearl perch along with the typical other reef species.
Out wider really fired up with some great quality fish and good numbers consisting of red emperor; one at 12kgs, sweetlip up to 7 kilo and good numbers of 3-4kg sweetlip, snapper, pearl perch and parrot.
Plenty of large spangled emperor have also been a regular catch along with cod, cobia, scarlet sea perch and trout.
Plastics have been working well and producing quality fish, slow sinking strip baits have also been winners for those bigger predators.
‘Til next month, safe boating and happy fishing – cheers, Mat.
