There have been some good mixed bags caught by anglers trolling lures through the estuaries.
Trevally and chopper tailor have made up the majority of the catch with a few mangrove jack and estuary cod thrown in, especially in the early evening.
The technique is to troll hard body lures along canal rock walls in the late afternoon and into the night.
At this time of year, whiting can be relied on as an easy feed and some fun on light gear and this week was no exception with some great catches in the Nerang between the Sundale Bridge and Chevron Island Bridge on the run-out tide.
At Jumpinpin there have been some good catches in the Slipping Sand straight from Canapia Passage to the huts and around the corner on the sandy banks in the wide channel between Crusoe Island and North Stradbroke.
Even the Logan River at Ageston Sand, around the green beacons, has turned up some better catches.
Further north there have been good catches in Tingalpa Creek, King Island and the foreshores nearby and in Pumicestone Passage.
Mulloway catches slowed up a little this week, the beach anglers have had the most fun, some reporting a dozen fish in a tide last week but down to only a few fish this week.
Surprisingly the best bait has been a big bunch of beach worms fished in a deep hole within site of a bar entrance - a deadly combination at the moment.
Anglers fishing live baits have caught a lot less fish this week but some of the better quality including a few fish over 10 kilos.
Offshore, dolphinfish have turned up in big numbers on most of the wider reefs, FADs and wave rider buoys.
Those dropping baits on the bottom reported an increase in size and quantity of snapper, especially on the wider reefs when the current backs off enough to fish them.
There's also been quality trag on most of the shallow reefs, especially at night.
On the freshwater scene, Somerset and Wivenhoe dams are producing some great catches of bass at the moment.
