Report 31/10/14

Post by Nicole Penfold » Fri Oct 31, 2014 10:38 am

We have been recently blessed with calm seas and it looks as though there is still a little more to come and with this the reef has been the place to be, so majority of the reports coming in have been to match.

Those fishing the outside edges of the reefs have been seeing success, catching plenty of trout, nannygai and red throats, and the odd nice red emperor thrown in the mix at night time as well. Cuttlefish heads are a good tough bait that will keep the smaller fish interested until that bigger one comes along.
Those trolling around the reefs for pelagics have also been having a ball, catching plenty of mackerel (some upwards of 25kg+), dolphinfish, yellowfin tuna, and wahoo have also been in numbers out just a little bit wider. Skirted lures, bibbed minnows and bibless high speed lures have all been working nicely. For the heavy tackle game fisherman, out towards the shelf the odd giant black marlin has been raised, hooked or tagged, taking both big lures and baits.
Don’t dismiss the creeks this weekend, even though the weather is good enough to hit up the reef again, with the close of the barra season creeping up, there is one last chance to catch a barramundi with some quality fish getting around, look towards the mouths of the creeks and trolling lures is a good way to work slightly deeper water.

SUGGESTED SPOTS THIS WEEKEND
The choice is endless so whatever style of fishing your into be it bottom bashing for coral trout, trolling a lure offshore for mackerel or jigging the wrecks to flicking a lure or soaking a bait up the creek this weekend is one of those cracker fishing weekends.
