WeeklyReport 13 Jun 08

Looks like a burst of winter on the way, complete with blustery SW winds. In the short term that might curtail some fishing activities over the coming weekend, but we need the water temperature to drop a few degrees to bring on the winter species. There are reports of some decent snapper out about 40kms, but we will need some cooler water to bring them closer in around the Keppels. Even though we've had some really calm offshore conditions, fishing has only been average at best in most places. The usual coral trout have come from the Keppels and red fish out wider, but so far few mackerel have made an appearance in the bay.

The estuaries have been fairly quiet in the main, with no real flathead run so far. Maybe once we get a week or so of cold weather, that will all change? Hope so. A few good sized bream have been taken though, so expect them to become more common in the coming weeks as well. I haven't heard of any significant schools of Blue threadies in Coorooman Creek yet, but same story with them - need some cold weather. There are a few dart along the beaches north of Yeppoon, with some quality fish among them. Keep an eye out for bait schools along the coast once the winds turn offshore. That will be the trigger for threadies, steelies and mackeral to make an apperance in close. The Fitzroy River might be worth a try for a bream or two along the stone walls and there should be a few salmon below Nerimbera.
