the canals at Raby Bay as well as close inshore around Cleveland Point hold small queenfish,tarpon and some good bream,a good bloke to talk to is Duncan down at Fishead in Redland bay for whats usually happening locally.
If you have the energy the top end of Peel Island is a good place to chase Snapper on soft plastics,just remember to stay out of the exclusion zone.
Nice barra m8, ya could have asked her to towel off a bit before giving her a cuddle tho. :wink:
A few nice options down that way, wello shallows produces some nice fish, and the other options mentioned could be worth a look, you'll be up to that peel trip in no time. I know I used to thing a 4Km round trip a lot of paddling and now 12Ks is no problem. When I get the scupper I expect places like peel will be well within my sites, particularly with all the storage space below decks, I reckon a tent, sleeping back and a few days worth of food would easily go in the hull, I might need to lose a few Kgs though.
