This is the time of the year that the sand and yellowfin whiting really start to kick into gear. There have been plenty of sand whiting in the Southport Broadwater for the landbased angler of late. There have been quite a few bream mixed in with them as well. These ones were from a couple of hours last night using surf worms for bait with the best fish of 36 cm. You don't need a boat to consistently get a feed of fish.
August is always a pretty good month to chase sand whiting at many locations around Moreton Bay and there have been a few fish nosing about the Southport Broadwater for me landbased after work for a couple of nights this week. Nothing over 40 cm so far, but a couple of reasonable fish. Bait choice hasn't seemed to make much difference with fish being caught on yabbies, surf worms and Cribb Island worms. Light leads (00 or 000) in less than a metre of water has been the go. These were caught from the beaches at Runaway Bay.
Heading down to Southport this weekend for 2 nights fishing the Southport Broadwater and offshore from there as well going to chase Jewfish and tailor inshore and snapper offshore will be staying in the anchorage on the northern side of Wave Break Island.
