If you haven’t been fishing this month, you better have a really good excuse. With the warm weather and increased water temperatures, the northern bay is aging like a good red wine.
Fishing activity is always aplenty during the warmer months in our much-loved bay, which is attributed to the warm currents from up north flowing down into the many rivers and creeks that border the area. Also, the increased frequency of northerly winds around this time of the year greatly assists the water temperature change, making fish more active in their feeding.
This month has been great for the flathead anglers, with good numbers being found in the Pumicestone Passage, Caboolture River and the lower reaches of the Pine River. Sandgate foreshore has also produced some good catches, along with little-known sleeping giant Cabbage Tree Creek, keeping locals entertained on the ebbing tides.
