Report 29/06/14

Rain or shine, fishing is always fine. The Whiting are biting, but where? Many reported catches in the Bay from the jetties at Victoria Point & Redland Bay through to Pelican & Chain Banks, Rous Channel & around Harrys Atkinson's. Ageston Sands in the Logan River & many other little sandbanks on the run in tide. They love the beach or bloodworms, but squid works just as well. I have also been using little Zman Grubz to chase them or any other worms styled soft plastic as small bubble poppers work well on the shallow banks & move around if not getting bites. The larger Summer whiting are proving more elusive but still a few hanging around the winter whiting are in full swing.

Flattys are still on the menu the mouth of the logan head towards Redland Bay Channel, but as it gets colder they will drop off. However, the bream are very active. Dylan got his pb last week with a 43 and 44cm in the logan at night of the bank, he released them for another day as they would have been over 30 years old with a lot of bream coming in from crab pots as well.

Tailor have been chopping down the pin with a few larger fish in the mixes with schools coming in on the run in tide then heading along the sand bank that leads to the crossover beacon at the top of short island. Anchor your boat up on the edge & throw your unweighted baits in the deep. They have also been in front of Redland bays ferries, Long Is, Pannikin, garden island & snipe island as well.

There have been quite a few squire starting to bite the last couple of weeks with good reports coming from central banks, captain Nelson, curtain, 4 beacons, Harry's, the start of Rous, Wellington point ledge, Cleveland point ledge, Coochie reef, Potts point, iron stern, Blakeleys, most are on the plain old pilly.

There have been some nice Jew in the 25 to 35 kg in the last two weeks from the mouth of the bars, Southport, Jumpin pin, south passage all on livies. They will start to congregate in numbers so if you have a good Jew spot now is the time to target them. Livies is a must, pike, mullet, Silver bitties, herring, gar, big tailor, yakkas & slimys, as a rule use what is in your area so if fishing in the river use, herring or mullet or silver bitties & if fishing in the bay use gar, pike, yakkas, if fishing the bar use sea mullet, tailor, pike & slimies.

Squid are all over the jetties & usual hangouts in the shallow rocky bottoms throughout the Bay area. We spent a few nights chasing them, we could clearly see them & no matter what size or colour squid jig they just weren't interested in biting. So we used the cast net to catch a feed.

Sandcrabs & Mudcrabs are hanging around in large numbers in the Logan River mouth. Sandies love whiting frames and tuna frames and the muddies love roo tail, chicken frames, sand crabs and any fish but catfish is one of the best they have been caught regardless of the old wive's tale. Had a few Octopus in the pots as well which was odd as they always get out before day light the water temperature will drop soon & the crabs probably will too.

There have been reports of people catching Pike last few weeks, so I went out myself using Rapala hardbodies down the Seaway on high tide. We manage to catch a few pike but also got Flattys, Sargent baker, tailor, queen fish. There has been a lot pike around Coochie, goat & Peel but a lot are being caught on plastics meant for squire.

Best thing about fishing is just managing to find the time to go out & thoroughly enjoy it, fish or no fish, which I have been able to do a fair bit this month. I went offshore a few times to the Cathedrals, Point Lookout,36 & managed to land a few reef fish, parrot, squire , Maori cod, pearl perch, Trevally, coral cod, tuna, some big yellow tail kingfish on livies & squid, pilchards, octopus, whiting & mac tuna fillets as well. It took me a while to drive around a few of my GPS marks till i seen fish hanging around & where they are biting, had to move a couple of times. Before leaving I couldn't help myself but have a quick look for some whales. Overall we had an excellent few days here & there with heaps of fish. A bad days fishing is better than a good days work.

I hope u can get out over the week. From the crew at Victoria Point Bait & Tackle, Like our page on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/VictoriaPointBaitTackle
