Span­ish mack­erel have been in good Johnstone num­bers around River the is­lands and reef edges, on floated pilchards and live baits along with slow-trolled wolf her­ring. A few have also been caught on high speed me­tal jigs on the struc­ture hold­ing bait. Off­shore a few dol­phin fish and yel­lowfin tuna have been taken trolling skirted lures on the drop-off. River fish­ing has seen man­grove jacks tak­ing lures in the Maria and Hull Rivers. The river mouths are pro­duc­ing nice grunter. Con­tact: The Tin­nie Shack, Mis­sion Beach, ph 4088 6125.
