Weekly Report 29 Jul 11

Post by Brad » Fri Jul 29, 2011 7:41 am

Earlier this week saw a few days of excellent weather which allowed a few boats to go offshore. Those lucky enough to get the time off to head out were well rewarded. There were some big red emperor caught as well as some coral trout, sweetlip, cod, and tusk fish. Some big cobia and spanish mackerel have also been caught in these areas. Some of the boat wrecks such as the Barjon and Karma have also been producing some great fishing with squire and sweetlip both being caught on them. There has also been a few cobia, and the trevally are thick and are great sport fish. Throwing chrome lures to the bottom then using a quick retrieve should see you into some red hot pelagic action.

Back to the rivers – most of our local creeks and rivers are firing with the usual bream, whiting and flathead and the salmon are still moving about the Burnett River. A few guys have them worked out on lures and are having a ball, with lures such as Blades and Thready Busters being favourites. At the moment there seems to be a run of fish along the local beaches. Whiting, dart and tailor have been the most common catches but for those willing to put in some time, the night time high tides have been producing some big jew with tailor or mullet fillets being best baits for these fish. There is still a good run of prawns about, so it is worth putting the cast net in and having a go.

The bass are still on the chew in the Isis Impoundment (Lake Gregory). A lot of the fish are schooling up, so jigging plastics and blades will be the best method to catch a big bass.
Till next time, Tim Mulhall
