Report 22/07/14

Yeppoon
This week the winds pickup in strength and deterred the reef fisherman from going out to the wide ground like the Douglas Shoals, Karamea Banks, Moresby Banks and Goodwin Shoals and up to Flat and Perforated Islands. But those that fished the inner reefs like Finlays reef, Iron Pot Island just off the Roslyn Bay boat harbour, square rocks just off North Keppel and Ritamada around Emu Park reported good catches of mackerel. There were also good reports of the mulloway, grunter and cod being caught around this reefs and headlands.

Before you head out, please inform the Coast Guard of your destination and ETA of your return to port, and also check the weather at BOM and Seabreeze.

The beaches are alive with fish at the moment with the blue salmon, bream, and flathead, all these types of fish were caught along the beaches like Kinka Beach, Lammermoor Beach, main beach of Yeppoon and Farnborough and Nine mile beaches. It is pleasing to know that most of these beaches are in the yellow zone of the Great Barrier Reef marine park and they cannot be netted by the commercial fisherman. But when the fish enter into the estuaries, that is a different matter; the pros can and will net them until there are none left.

On the estuary scene there have been some salmon reported caught, and some of the regular bream, whiting and grunter have been caught as well. The estuaries are also producing plenty of good full mud crabs in areas like Corio Bay, Coorooman creek, Causeway Lake and the mouth of the Fitzroy River.

It was pleasing to have plenty of comment coming in about the rubbish left by a little minority of fisherman, I am sure that these people will be caught one day as there are a lot of concerned fisherman out there just waiting to catch them in the act.

If you have any good stories on fishing trip or a fish that you caught send it in to us at coucomscrabpots@gmail.com as we are always interested in great fishing stories.

Tides: The tides for the coming weekend are low tide around 3 to 3.30pm with the high tide around 9.00 to 9.30am they are on the make leading up to the new or black moon ideal for crabbing this weekend.

Tip of the Week: Take your kids fishing they will love it and so will you


Till next week from your local tackle shop in Yeppoon
