December 6 Weekend Fishing Report
Should be a good weekend weather wise with Sunday the pick of days if you are heading out.
Fairly big tides this weekend.
On Saturday the tidal flow will be between 60 - 70% of the year’s biggest tide.
On Sunday it drops off slightly, much more manageable at around 50 - 60% of the year’s biggest tide.
Solunar peaks are 75% on Saturday at 3.20am and 3.40pm. On Sunday they drop off to 50% and fall at 4.15am and 4.35pm.
Whiting catches have been consistent in all rivers and creeks.
The Nerang River is easily producing a feed for those fishing the run out tide at night using blood worms but anglers trying during daylight hours won’t go home empty handed.
At Jumpinpin there has been good catches opposite Slipping Sands, Tabby Island and the southern end of Russell Island.
They have also been caught at Ageston Sands in the Logan River and further north at along the Manly foreshores, King Island and in Pumicestone Passage.

After a few days of broken lines, broken rods and stripped reels, Harro realised this fish was, at the larger end of its size, truly unstoppable.
Before the first fish was landed, Harro had upgraded to heavy tackle game fishing gear, and was tightening the drag ...
