What a great week for being on the water! We have had light winds and lots of sunshine making for very favourable conditions to get out on the water trying to catch a feed.
Brett is on annual leave and no doubt trying for a feed for his family, so the fishing report has been left up to me this week.
Our houseboat customers have been having a great time this week and reporting good catches of muddies and flathead. Michael out on our houseboat, Dusk Breaker has sent a photo (see Below) of just one of the good sized Flatties he had caught while on charter this midweek. Seems most of the action has been up around the pin and Tiger Mullet channel areas.
If you have a boat and are thinking of trying your luck for some muddies this weekend, try setting your pots in the mouth of the North Arm of the Coomera, Pimpama River, Tipplers Passage, The Never Fails Islands, Whalleys Gutter, Tiger Mullet Channel and the Mouth of the Logan River. If you don’t have a boat, anywhere you can fish along the Coomera River is worth a go. Set your pots, throw in a line and you may get a bream or a flathead to go with the Crabs. You will have yourself a seafood smorgasbord.
Quality Bream are still being caught in good numbers, so as we head into winter it looks like a great season on the way for the Bream Fisherman and Fisherwomen. Jumpinpin and the Gold Coast Seaway are good spots to try.
Hope you all have a good weekend and get out for a fish, if you have any reports please let us know how you went.

At the time of writing this report the forecast looks like we will see a pretty good weekend on the way. A chance of rain on Saturday with some stronger than we would like SE winds before tending more ESE and winds easing a little for Sunday which at this stage is going to be the pick of the weekend days. Mid next week is also looking good with winds dropping very low for Tuesday and Wednesday, so they will be great days to head out for a fish. Just make sure you have the latest weather report before you head out on the water.
If you have any great catches to report or fishing photos please email them to email@example.com Good luck with the Fishing. Mike.

Being up to date with the rules and regulations when fishing in Queensland is very important if you are looking at keeping a feed of fish and crabs. We do recommend you take the time to be well informed on how big a fish should be, bag limits or what crabs you are legally allowed to keep before you go fishing. Follow the link to Queensland Fisheries website to view current regulations http://www.daff.qld.gov.au/fisheries/recreational/rules-regulations or you can also pick up a rule book from us at Coomera Bait & Tackle free of charge.
