Police have found a semi-submerged boat belonging to two Brisbane men still missing from a fishing trip in rough seas.

Carwyn Massey, 25, and Timothy Maher, 31, phoned their family about 10.15pm on Saturday saying they were coming home.

They never arrived.

Their car and boat trailer were discovered at the Whyte Island Boat Ramp.

Their 3.3-metre blue aluminium dinghy was found in waters near nearby Green Island late on Sunday afternoon.

Brisbane Water Police are continuing to search the central Moreton Bay area on Monday, with officers scouring mangroves on St Helena Island and Green Island.

Helicopters will also continue an aerial search, with 18 vessels including the Coast Guard and Volunteer Marine Rescue on the water.

Police say improved weather conditions should assist search operations.
