Report 30/10/14

Post by Nicole Penfold » Wed Oct 29, 2014 9:50 pm

Recent strong northerly winds have hampered fishing for many anglers, the estuaries have been the only place to hide from the persistent winds let’s hope we have a break from them soon.

Burrum
The Burrum has seen a few flathead along the foreshore along with quality whiting taken at night. Further in the system mangrove jack have been very active, small hardbody lures worked in the snags has been very effective. Please remember that the Barramudi closure will be in effect from November 1 so any fish caught must be released unharmed as quickly as possible. Trevally have also been found in the deep holes along with queenfish running the flats.

Local Reefs
The local reefs should fire when the wind settles as there has not been any pressure on them for the past week. Sweetlip,cod, coral trout, blue parrot and school mackerel should be about.

Platypus Bay
School mackerel have begun to show up in Platypus Bay with some good quality fish found on the isolated reefs. Longtail tuna have also begun to turn up along with our run of small black marlin. Deeper in the water column big golden trevally have responded to micro jigs and soft plastics.

Urangan Pier
Mackerel had been a big drawcard off the pier before the northerly’s arrived, the dirty water will push them away but once it cleans up some good fishing will be had out in the second channel. Broad bar, Spanish and school mackerel were all being reported. Big Gt’s will also be active with live school mackerel being a favourite bait for targeting big GT’s.

Sandy Straits
Salmon have been going crazy in the Mary system at present, good captures of big fish have been reported from the Mouth of the Mary all the way to the town reach’s in Maryborough. Deep divers trolled along the deep rock bars has been effective along with working the shallows and drains with shallow running lures. The odd Barra has also been in the mix. Grunter, blue salmon, flathead and whiting have also been active taking soft plastics and baits. Down the straits salmon can also be found in the creeks of the Island and around Turkey Straits. Cod, parrot, sweetlip and the odd jew have been reported coming from the ledges on fresh cut and live baits.
