WINTER has come! This statement might arouse parts of the community in different ways. For us, the cold weather means cold water fish.
Normally snapper (my favourite fish all year round) hang out deep in the cooler water but at the moment you only need to go offshore 2-3km to bag out on these beauties. One of the best places to find snapper of late is the local reefs off Caloundra.
The coffee rock, Brays Rock and Inner Gneerings are producing great catches of snapper, reds and parrot. This is great for two reasons. First, these close reefs make it quick and easy to go and catch great fish and get home before lunch.
Second, it gives many people just getting into deepwater fishing an opportunity to test their open water skills without losing sight of land. If you’ve just started out and you’re looking for an open water fishing boat, a couple of models in the Quintrex Trident and Yellowfin ranges currently represent great value for money for both the family fisher and hard-core angler.
E-TEC-powered Quintrex models are eligible for $10 per horsepower factory cash back on 40-130hp-powered boats. And if that’s not reason enough to get your interest, Caloundra Marine has an exclusive offer to double the factory cash back during the boat show season. That means you can potentially get back up to $2600 off the already excellent boat show pricing.
So what are you waiting for?
Get out on the water and catch yourself a big one.
