Weekly Report 30 Oct 07

Post by Brad » Tue Oct 30, 2007 10:06 am

LAND BASED
There have been some nice Queenfish caught lately off Pallarenda beach on live baits with the odd barra also coming from around the old quarantine jetty. I also heard an interesting report in the last couple of days of a large cobia smashing up bait around Low's bridge in Ross creek with one keen angler reporting to of had it on for only a few seconds after it slurped down his soft plastic on his light bream rod. The break wall has been producing some nice Mangrove Jacks lately on lures with quite a few lures being ambushed by large cod. I have heard some of the large cods down there have quite a lure collection.

INSHORE
The grunter reports if anything seems to have improved so this weekend around the tops of the tide there should be some more quality grunter caught. The Bowling Green sand spit will probably be like Queen Street this weekend with the full moon tonight the grunter should be there in good numbers. It might pay to fish the deeper edges with the full moon the shallows don't seem to produce as many fish, as they tend to spook easily. There have been reports of some good grunter in the mouth of Alligator and Crocodile creeks. The reports of fingermark have also continued with some good fingermark coming from many of the deeper wholes in Morrissey and the Haughton River. The Burdekin, Barratta's and Crocodile creeks have been producing some great barra fishing lately. The Hinchinbrook channel has also been producing some great barra sessions recently. The shallow sand bars and mud bars on the incoming tide have been producing some good Blue Salmon recently also with most of the creeks in Cleveland bay and Bowling green bay producing the odd salmon recently. The mud crabs seem to be a little patchy at the moment, however I have had a few reports of quality mud crabs being caught by line with most coming in this fashion from deep wholes.

OFFSHORE & BAY

Reports from offshore and the bay practically non existent due to the strong wind, which however should change this weekend with the great conditions forecast for the next 4 to 5 days.
