No doubt a catch and release... minimum size for snapper is 30 cm's. whistlingdixie1

Great to see such a range of fish being cause in our waters now thumbsup1

Wonder if it’s climate change or simply the fact we’ll targeting particular species more think1

Combination of both...eastern Australian current has brought with it warm water species resulting in different techniques to catch em.

Next fish on the bucket list...the elusive YTK

Thanks mahimahi. You reckon the EAC has that much impact on FHB though think1

Definitely seen the impact and changes in water temp on the upper/mid East coast with the species we’ve been catching up there but that far south think1

Can see the currents bringing species like Mahi Mahi (laugh1) and YTK further south but snapper, thought they may of been a bit more residential.

In saying that, I grew up on the shores of FHB and have never caught a snapper in 40+ years so perhaps you’re right thumbsup1 cool1

Can take you to a few good cod holes if you’re interested embaress1

Nice work. seen a few of these smaller ones caught the last few weeks. Hope they breed up over winter and next year it is a better fishery.

Spoke to a fella at the dodges ferry ramp on the weekend, he said he landed a 70cm snapper not so long ago in the same area
