Report 20/11/14

Post by subeditor » Thu Nov 20, 2014 11:48 am

Please remember our next coral fin closure is coming up on 19th to the 23rd November, it is important that we look after our fish stocks for future generations. While on closures remember that the barra seasons closes on the 1st November 2104 and reopens in February 2015.
Now the closure want effect the mackerel fishing and over the past week there have been plenty reports coming in from fishermen catching mackerel in the bay and off the beach. There have been the others that have fish the 40 acre paddock between the Keppel islands and Roslyn Bay harbour and have caught mackerel, not big numbers but they caught a good feed.
On the reef fishing there were plenty reporting in that fished the offshore areas like Douglas Shoal, ferns and Karama Banks and Perforated and Flat islands, they reported that the fishing was good with some big grunter and other reef fish caught and they bagged out. It was pleasing to hear plenty of positive reports coming in as we enter the Christmas and holiday time of the year.
In the close reefs and islands like Finlay’s and Keppel islands and Ritamada as well as the old barge plenty of grunter and mackerel and the usual reef fish, they also reported plenty of sharks around.
The beaches are still fishing well with most of the fishermen that ventured out on the beaches like Nine Mile, Kinka, Lammermoor and Farnborough beaches catching a good feed of whiting and bream as well as those odd reports of mackerel.
Plenty of fishermen fished the estuaries and headland and were rewarded with some good grunter, whiting, and bream and there was a couple reported the odd salmon. Over at the Causeway Lake some reported catching mangrove jack using local prawns. Now we are going through a period of no mud crabs, with all the crabbers not going out until it rains, and let’s hope that this is soon.
The weather this week is looking good with light winds for most of the week, the tides for the coming weekend high tides are 9 and 9.30 o’clock and low water will be around 3 and 3.30 o’clock. They would be good tides for crabbing, but you will have to fish the side creeks to get out of the run, there will be a run through at the causeway lake.
There has been a change in the Crab Shock Classic crabbing competition for the Capricorn Coast, the dates have been bought forward to June the 26th 27th and 28th 2015, if you would like to know more please email or ring the shop for more detail.
Any photos or information about fishing that you feel others need to know about it can be dropped in or email them to coucomscrabpots@gmail.com we are also on face book at Coucom crabpots look us up there as well.
Al’s tip of the week: Please check the weather before leaving we are now in the storm season.

Till next week
