Shore fishing around that

Shore fishing around that time will be good. It will still be hot, and the barra are usually still around at that time. If it cools down earlier than expected and the barra go off the bite, you should definately have no problem tangling with Jacks at that time. Do you have a boat? If so, I would suggest using it even if you're planning on fishing the creeks as although you can fish them land based you have a lot more freedom in a boat.
Offshore you need to head out a fair way to catch Reds due to it's proximity to the shelf (most guys are going out 30 miles +) but inshore you can still get reasonable mackies, trout and northwest snapper.
Will be bit early for sailfish, I wouldn't really bother targeting them at that time.

PM me when you're up, maybe we can go for a fish.

Any more questions or if I've failed to cover something (I'm a bit busy at the moment so my post was rushed) fire away :)

You gotta be in it to win it
