Two Days Fishing Moreton Bay

Two Days Fishing Moreton Bay

I recently managed to escape the latest Sydney lockdown by flying into Brisbane two weeks prior to our planned Keppel Island vacation. That said, it wasn’t all plain sailing, and we were forced into 14 days of lockdown having been in NSW after the outbreak. Thankfully we were still allowed out to exercise, which happened to include fishing, so this is exactly what we did.

Over the course of our lockdown Nick and I took the boat our twice, both times on Moreton Bay, focusing in on the Peel Island area. We drifted bait over structure, picking up a handful of species including snapper, sweet lips, cod, tuskfish, and so many more. We also took the opportunity to tag some fish, giving back to the fishing community.

We may not have landed any beasts, but it was great to be out on the water. Especially considering the alternative was to be stuck in lockdown.
