Whiting catches have been excellent in the Tweed River, Tallebudgera Creek, Nerang River and further north in both arms of the Coomera River.
At Jumpinpin, the top spots are Tabby Island, Tiger Mullet Channel, Middle Banks between Crusoe and North Stradbroke and in the channel at the bottom end of Russell Island down to the Cabbage Tree boat ramp.
In the bay, Tingalpa Creek and the sandbanks off Wynnum, Manly and King Island have produced results.
There's still plenty of flathead around, although trolling for them has been difficult in some areas because of the weed. The better locations have been the northern Broadwater around Crab Island and the mouth of the Coomera and Pimpama rivers. At Jumpinpin, from Slipping Sands to Squire Island, the sandbank off the southern tip of Cobby Island and the sandbanks between Crusoe Island and North Stradbroke Island leading towards the Pin Bar.
The Logan River has turned up a few fish at Ageston Sand and there have been a few good catches from Little Rocky Point north on the sandbanks along the western side of Russell Island up to Giants Grave.
Mud crabs are still slow but recent rain should improve results. Sand crabs have been a better proposition, with good catches in the eastern Bay along North Stradbroke Island around Deanbilla Bay to Canapia Passage.
In Moreton Bay, there has been snapper and sweetlip in the shallows around Mud, Green and Peel islands, especially in the very early morning. Once the sun gets up, the Harry Atkinson artificial reef is a better location. One of the hot spots has been the Brisbane River with good snapper and mulloway around the mouth along the reclamation pond walls and wharves and threadfin salmon off the City Cat jetties further up river at night.
Offshore, small snapper is the main species on the bite, and there have been a few big cobia caught on live baits fished over bait schools or on wrecks. In the freshwater, Awoonga, Lenthalls, Peter Faust, Eungella dams are all coming into prime time and a good chance of producing you a big barra.
