    Cape Moreton 9/1/16 trip report

    We headed to the cape to try for some Marlin or mahi mahi after leaving Wynnum at 4am we were fishing in 80-100m for nothing until 9am.
    so change of plan in closer to hutchies for some mackerel could see them we were trolling and floating for a couple of hours for sip.
    I was thinking I was getting a donut but then I found a school right at the cape in 22m
    we could see the mackerel trailing the lures and nothing so the frustration was getting high
    last attempt unweighted pilly in umugst a couple of cut up ones thrown over at the same time
    then finally on the elation big head shakes and a cracking snappa was boated 93cm

    You're not supposed to catch snapper in the middle of the day in summer in the shallows. Well done for turning a donut into a memorable trip

    Well done mate, trolling around Moreton seemed pretty slow that day, so good choice in putting the lures away.
