    Mackerel seemed to have arrived in the southern Gulf

    Most people I have been talking to say that I am more likely to see Spainiards in number for a few months yet. Over the past few weekends I have been seeing them free jumping all over the place. The wife got a good specimen a couple of weeks ago bottom fishing with Plastics. This fella took a blue and silver Halco laser pro. Solid fish at 1500mm and a proud
    PB.

    Hahaha it is the tip of a little spin rod sitting in a rod holder. Funny a couple of locals were talking about when Indo boats were coming down in 2009 about 10 of 60 that got between Gove and Weipa landed on the island. They got a shock when our mob were out chasing turtles etc with spears.

    Have any SM shown up off Moreton yet? We are from Brissy and can't tell you how much time and effort I have put in chasing these from Moreton to the Goldie for no huge success. I feel like I am finally reaping the rewards for time spent by getting to fish up here. Was eyeing off Sunday arvo but now it looks like we are fair chance of cyclone.

    Not in any big numbers yet. Won't be chasing them while the prawns are as thick as they are at the moment!

    There have been plenty being caught by my kayak mates off the Sunny Coast. Best I have seen this season went 1.76m and 35kg at Sunshine Reef. Not a bad effort in a yak.
