New Member Interested In Fishing Moreton Bay

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just joined. Based on Brisbane Northside. Just sold a 35 foot flybridge cruiser (thank goodness - never again) and have ordered a Stejcraft ss64. Not sure of delivery date yet but probably within two months. I am looking for a group/club interested in fishing Moreton Bay, or any tips/spots etc. Although I have been fishing the bay for close on forty years I now have more time on my hands, and intend to spend much more time out there.

Welcome to the forum mate. I just googled your Stejcraft - that's one slick looking rig, enjoy when it arrives!!  @Doyley may be able to advise on a northside fishing club that may be beneficial for you - I know he is part of one (Toorbul from memory) but not sure if you're after estuary fishing or more out in the bay (the latter I suspect).

Depending on where you launch from/intend to fish, it may also pay to keep an eye on these rolling reports

  They are mainly for the central bay area around Green Island/Peel Island/Rous Channel but also the Sandhills area for whiting and school mackerel.

Thanks KM. Much appreciated. I will keep an eye on those fishing reports. Although, given the amount of wind we’ve been getting lately, I imagine they’ll be pretty succinct. 
With regard to the stejcraft, I decided to go with the new Mercury 200hp Pro XS, which should be a bit of a beast. V8. lol

Thanks for the heads up. I’m afraid the boat is going to have to put up with getting dirty at times. Hopefully it will mean I’m bringing a few keepers in. I used to fish Bribie passage and Moreton a lot when I was younger. I lived on Bribie for about 5 years. My house used to back onto Dux Creek before the marina even went in.
