WEATHER CONDITIONS

Thursday December 3; The weather on the Sunshine Coast is not looking great for this weekend. Extreme winds are expected to see the swell increase to well over the 3m mark making deep sea fishing not only impossible but potentially dangerous 🙁 . This unsettled weather looks to be with us until Tuesday of next week at least. Pity because the fishing has been awesome for most trips of late! It would seem the slow season changeover we usually see in November has indeed finished and we are now in full swing of the Summer fishing! Cobia have been in full force as have yellow tail. Don’t forget our year round fish such as Cod, Red Throat, Red Emperor  and Amberjack though as they have been in good numbers as well.

We are rapidly approaching the “Silly Season” which can make it difficult to get on a charter if you leave it until the last minute. Give us a call and book your trip as early as possible. Remember that summer weather is far less predictable than winter weather so if you are looking to head out during your break, book it in towards the start of your break. That way if the weather forces the trip to be cancelled you still have a chance to head out later in your holiday!

Have a look at our Facebook site to see live updates as the fish are caught aboard Crusader 1!

Sound interesting? Give us a call or book online and let us show you how a fishing charter can be done better!
