Estuary waters are slowly clearing after last month's rain, and we are seeing plenty of fish caught as a result.
There has been an unseasonal run of bream, tarwhine and grunter in most estuary waters. They are mainly taking baits like live yabbies but a few have also been caught on small lures in the cleaner water areas.
Whiting have been in good numbers in the larger waterways like the Broadwater and Jumpinpin, however they have been harder to find in the upper reaches of rivers and creeks that are discoloured.
There has been quite a few smaller mulloway caught by those using banana prawns for bait.
Most have been about the 80cm mark but there has been the odd much bigger fish for those using live bait.
Marks Rocks in the Logan is one location that has turned up a few big fish, even in that dirty water. There has also been a few caught just inside the Pin Bar and in the Southport Seaway.
Flathead have been a little harder to find. Most have been caught by anglers throwing hard body lures and plastics up into the shallows and working them into deeper water.
Nudgee has been the hot spot for prawns again this week but they are far from being a certainty. Catches vary day to day.
They have also been caught in the usual spots including deeper holes in the Pine and Caboolture rivers, in the southern bay and around the mouth of the Logan River.
It is worth putting pots in for a mud crab, especially in the northern Broadwater and there has been good catches of sandies in the bay off Wellington Point, around the southern bay islands and the edges of the Rainbow Channel.
Most of the offshore anglers have been chasing Spanish and spotty mackerel however tuna are making up most of the catch. Some of the tuna caught this week tipped the scales at more than 10kg and there has been smaller bonito in numbers as well.
There has been plenty of small marlin caught over the past few weeks for those going after them.
