Report 09/09/14

Post by Nicole Penfold » Tue Sep 09, 2014 9:18 am

Terrible condtions early in the week have made for some better weather for boaties and anglers. Local estuaries were the pick of places to hide from the wind with the smaller systems being a popular choice. This weekend better conditions are expected not perfect but good enough for a early morning outing.

Burrum
The Burrum River has produced loads of tarpon for light tackle sport fisherman, they have been taken on the surface along with down deeper in the water column on vibes, plastics and hard body lures. A few fingermark have been reported with live baits getting the most attention. It won’t be long before the jacks fire up and hopefully we will get some warm stable weather to help get them going. Out the front mackerel have been taken n the 8 mile with the odd squire also about.

Urangan Pier
The Urangan Pier has seen a run of Spanish mackerel of late in the second channel, live baits have been working well under balloons with the odd one taking a metal spoon. Golden trevally, tailor,whiting,fathead to 3kg and bream have also been reported.

Wide Grounds
Limited reports have come the wide grounds due to the weather but all the usual suspects should be on offer. Spanish mackerel have also been taken wide with good numbers over break sea spit, black marlin are also about with slow trolled live baits working the best.

Local Reefs
As we move into the warmer season our local reefs will begin to come to life with the usual summer species, grass sweetlips, blue parrot, coral trout and cod are highly popular among local anglers. The grounds around the channel hole, outer banks and Sammy’s are good areas to start looking. The shallow reefs around point Vernon will also be worth a look for reef species with lightly rigged cut baits fished early working well.

Sandy Straits
The straits have produced some chopper tailor in the shipping channels and around the beacons, spinning lures has worked well with strip baits also effective on fussy fish. Whiting have been in good numbers over the recent big tides with Boral flats and the western side of Fraser island both producing. Flathead can be found on the weed beds and mangrove fringes with soft plastics working well. Mud crabs can be found in the creeks and should be more active over the coming months.
