Rainbow Beach Fishing Report

Hi all, well it’s been a tough month with weather and have only managed a handful of trips in. Those trips have been very productive with a great variety of Rainbow Beach reef fish and good quality.

Pearl perch have been solid as they were also this time last year. Snapper have slowed a little, however still finding patches holding good size and numbers, sweetlip, Moses Perch, parrot, husser and good size cod have been the majority of the catches along with the odd Red Emperor and trout.

Cobia have also been giving punters a bit of arm-stretching fun. Well, it should be any time now for the Mahi Mahi to start showing up, we caught some crackers last summer; so looking forward to some real sport with these guys.

In the straits, flathead have been in great numbers and size and absolutely loving the plastics, Jacks are also really starting to fire up.  That’s about it for this month, take care on the water.

Cheers Mat
