The beginning of October to the last week of this month will be vastly different from the last two months. For a start daylight savings kicks in, it should be near the end of the westerly influence, the water temperature is rising slightly, and fish are on the verge of migrating in larger numbers.

It seems miles off at this stage, but some seriously encouraging numbers of juvenile black marlin being tagged in northern Queensland (150 plus in one tournament alone) suggests we might have a boomer black season here this coming summer. Of course, this is dependent on suitable current, bait, wind, rain (or lack thereof), and a number of other factors — like a useable boat ramp. Meanwhile, winter continues to linger here, with some welcome precipitation turning up to give the creeks a decent flush out in August — the best drop since March in fact.
It can be very hard to decide what species to chase in October. Maybe whiting off the beaches or the sand flats? Bream on surface lures or bait fishing in the channels? Maybe snapper on the close offshore reefs and rock platforms? Squid could be in with a chance over the kelp and weed beds or maybe the artificial reefs, and what about mulloway with soft plastics or baits in the deep water. Decisions, decisions, what to do?
