See below for more details on how you can WIN this boat package full of great gear from the crew at Pure Fishing worth over $29,000!!
Due to time constraints and so little worth writing about, this week’s fishing report will be a very brief one. We will let the pictures do the talking this week and hopefully something more interesting for you next week.
Weekend Weather Hard to Predict
A quick glance at a couple of online weather sites might leave you a little confused as to what is on the cards for this weekend. Due to the unpredictability of the movements of a trough and deepening low pressure system off our coastline, things could get a little wet and windy Saturday, or it might only be light showers and moderate winds.
One thing is for sure, the wind is going to swing around all points of the compass over the coming few days as the low drifts south. Sunday will likely see an early westerly wind followed by a stiffening northerly in the afternoon. All in all, the weekend looks quite ordinary, though our region offers plenty of sheltered locations to escape the wind and fish in comfort if you are keen.
Lighter winds throughout the working week look great for anyone lucky enough to have time off. We might see a few showers over the next day or two, but our next real chance of any rain is possibly towards the end of next week as the onshore breeze strengthens.
Saturday’s first quarter moon phase means neap tides, and they are particularly small on this quarter. As the tides build towards the following weekend’s full moon there will undoubtedly be a good bite from a range of species that we can tell you all about next week.
Pictorial Overview of What’s on the Bite
So, with little to report on that we haven’t covered in recent weeks, check out the piccies below and you will get an idea of what you can go target locally. You can always refer back to previous reports if you need a bit more info on how, what where and when.
By the way, we are always on the hunt for pics to use in our weekly fishing reports. If you have any happy snaps you would like to share with the Fisho’s community, be they proud mum/dad moments, PB’s of your own, funny photos or just great all-round pics, then feel free to send them to us c/- our facebook page (www.facebook.com/fishostackleworldherveybay) or c/- our email email@example.com
Good luck out there y’all.

This big Mowong would have put up a great fight in relatively shallow water on 6lb braid! Bobby from Hot Reels Pro Fish Charters has been getting great results for his clients on the Aussie Made range of soft plastics from Gobblers Lure, drop in store and check them out.
Bobby from Hot Reels Pro Fish Charters sent us this photo of a big moses perch caught on a recent reef trip, much bigger than the average size you encounter.
Windy and wet but Hervey Bay Fly & Sportfishing still managed to get some smiles from the crew with this double hook up of mac tuna.
You never know what pelagics will be hanging around the tuna schools, from trevally and mackerel to cobia and queenfish. Pic: Hervey Bay Fly & Sportfishing
