April – November 2010
WINTER: Cold, Windy, Rainy, Miserable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NOT ON THE BEAUTIFUL GOLD COAST
Warm, crystal clear days, blue skies, light winds and calm seas makes up the majority of our weather at this glorious time of year.
This is reef fishing season, no doubt about it, with many species in great numbers at this time of year including, Snapper, Pearl Perch, Parrot, Rosie Job Fish, Morwong, Yellowtail Kingfish, Amberjack, Samson, Cobia (Black Kingfish), Teraglin (Trag Jew), Tailor, Shark, Cod, Tuna and many more.
Anything can happen fishing the reefs through winter. Many lucky anglers will encounter the long fight of a big Cobia or Kingfish or maybe the characteristic head shakes of a nice big Snapper, sometimes the anglers win the battle, and sometimes they remember the shear power and strength of an unstoppable fish. For many, they will be just happy to catch their first fish, big or small on their first trip offshore, everyday is different, and that’s what keeps me excited about the fishing here.
Species that can be encountered on the half and full days do vary. On the half days we can encounter, Tailor, Trag Jew, Snapper, Tuna, Cobia, Flathead, Parrot, Cod, Trevally, Wahoo and Shark.
On the full days we can encounter Snapper, Pearl Perch, Parrot, Rosie Job Fish, Morwong, Yellowtail Kingfish, Amberjack, Samson, Cobia, Trag Jew, Tailor, Shark, Cod, Tuna, Wahoo, Flathead and many more.
Humpback whales are prolific May – October with sightings on 90% of all charters. These beautiful mammals never cease to amaze me with the strength to propel themselves almost completely clear of the water as they play on there annual migration north.
Many of our customers tell me I have one of the best jobs on earth. When I’m watching the sunrise on a clear winter’s day over a glassy smooth ocean with a backdrop like the Gold Coast, I guess I’d have to agree.
We look forward to welcoming you aboard to share the great experience of deep sea offshore fishing, remember – Don’t forget your camera!
Excellent fishing to you all,
