Weekly Report 12 Nov 13

Post by Brad » Tue Nov 12, 2013 11:01 am

G'day every one, rain or shine fishing is always fine. Jack season is among us my fishermen friends with reports coming from all over. Coomera river highway bridges
are fishing well so is the Pimpama river, Behms creek & any of the islands where there are drop off at the edge or mangroves over hanging the edge. Jacks also like sand and rocks together, trolling hard bodies you can cover a lot more ground or live bait with a mullet on anchor is a good way to pass the time. Whiting are coming from the banks near the Pin, the mouth of the logan, Ageston sand, St Claire Is, Pelican banks, up to Rous, all have been in there 20 to 30 cm with a few in the 35+ blood worms are working the best.

There has been reports of Mackerel in and around south passage bar but they are schoolies, so the spotties won't be far away with fish being boated up the top of Moreton, Wahoo, Spanish mackerel and Spottys, and dolphinfish off the fads as well. Snapper are out in force just not in size, the average is 35 cm one local caught a 52 cm of Tommos beach on prawns. All the islands are fishing well as are the reefs just no size to them. Jew are on the chew, Peel Is has been holding fish in big numbers with a few locals who have been working slugs dropping them to the bottom jigging twice then dropping to bottom 10 fish to a session, the biggest was about 1m, Lazer pros in the white 40 grams or 7 inch bass assassins white.

The Pin, Short Is, Canaipa Passage, Macleay, the salt works and Potts point are all holding fish in numbers. Locate the fish on the sounder then work that one spot. There has been some squid still hanging around Peel, Coochie, Potts Point & Mud Is. Mud crabs are starting to come out, work the big tides up the drowns, little tides work the deep or drop off, Snadcrabs on the other hand are in the deep, spread your pots out at least 1 to 3 km apart then check in a hour or two, if u find them move your pots to that one spot as they are a school crab. They have been thick with report of 5 keepers to one pot. There has been a few Tailor coming through the Pin with the bigger ones at the end of South Straddy at the bar.

Every day is a good day for fishing, concentrate on catching one fish at a time, don't count your fish until on dry land, do not depend upon luck, keep your equipment clean & in good working order, make sure your hooks are sharp, tying a knot is one of the most important things required for a successful days fishing, select a rod by how it feels in your hand, the most important thing to remember when fly fishing is cast the line not the fly, share your knowledge & skills with other anglers, be versatile, keep only the fish you can use, experiment; try different lures colours shapes & sizes, try new fishing spots, bait the hook well & the fish will bite, without patience the hasty angler loses the fish, going fishing without beer makes the day last a year, remember the fish that escapes is the biggest fish of all & be confident."
