Weekly Report 8 Jul 10

Post by Brad » Thu Jul 08, 2010 9:58 pm

The last week of the school holidays was a bit of a fizzer. The weather turned to Melbourne type conditions and no one but the keenest or the Eskimos among us would have ventured out. It hasn't exactly been typical Central Queensland winter weather however. We should be experiencing bright brisk sunny days with morning south-westerlies calming to a gentle afternoon easterly of less than 10 knots. We can only hope this sort of beautiful weather is late in arriving. But to the fishing scene.

Offshore hasn't been producing too many fish due to the adverse conditions most of the time. I've heard mixed reports from the estuaries. Some folks have been finding decent flathead, while others have really struggled for a feed. A few small schools of Blue salmon have been in Corio and Coorooman. Whiting have been scarce in most locations. The surprising bright point continues to be the number and quality of mud crabs crawling into pots. All usual haunts have been producing good numbers of crabs. They have moved right up the Fitzroy River into the city reach, but most are either jennies or undersized bucks so far. The odd decent King and Blue salmon are also working the upper reaches. Fingers crossed that the upper level troughs stop coming across the continent soon and the big high pressure systems move north and stall over
the Tropic of Capricorn.
