Bream numbers continue to build with excellent quality and quantity close to bar entrances.
Short Island to the Pin Bar and Wave Break Island to the Seaway are the main areas where the fish are schooled up however they are being caught throughout all rivers and creeks, especially around rocks, marinas, bridge pylons and jetties.
There are a lot of chopper tailor moving through estuaries, unfortunately most are undersize.
The beaches have produced better quality, especially if you're fishing daylight and dusk.
Reports indicate the bigger tailor are further south, northern NSW beaches have had the lion's share over the past few weeks.
There are a few luderick around, just that not many people fish for them these days.
Tweed River is the best luderick system we have, less fish but still a few to be caught in the Broadwater and Jumpinpin.
Anglers fishing Moreton Bay are catching quite a few snapper from the artificial reefs, wrecks and shallows around the Bay islands and in the Brisbane River.
Reports are coming from a variety of different locations including the ledges along the western shoreline of Moreton Island, especially off Cowan and Bulwar and the Harry Atkinson as well as the newer artificial reefs in the southern Bay.
The shallows around the Bay islands have a lot of bream feeding making it harder to catch the snapper but those persevering have had good results between a feed of quality bream.
Squid and diver whiting are some of the better baits at this time of year as well pilchards and fish flesh.
Diver whiting are being caught on most banks throughout the Bay however the better catches this week came from Cockle Banks south of Bribie and the banks outside the green zone just north of Peel Island.
There have been great catches of squid around Victoria Point and Wynnum T jetty just after dark. Pick a day that has a high tide after dark and target them over the grassy banks.
Small squid jigs are working better than the large ones.
Offshore, as well as snapper, small kingfish and cobia are a consistent catch for those targeting them with live baits on the Gold Coast bait grounds, the Dragon wreck off the Jumpinpin Bar and the many wrecks and artificial reefs north of Cape Moreton.
