Report 12/2/15

Post by subeditor » Thu Feb 12, 2015 2:14 pm

With the weather forcasts not looking the kindest for off shore pusuits this weekend it might pay to look for fishing options out of the wind.
There are many options still available to anglers, canals, river systems and even behind bay islands can give anglers refuge from the wind.
The Gold Coast canals are a great place to fish at the moment with good reports of bream on both lures and bait being reported.

If you have access to a boat you will be at an advantage as you can search for protected areas more easily. Small diving crank baits like the Atomic Hardz 38 or the Ecogear SX40 are great for canals as they will often fool larger bream and bicatch like trevally, flathead, cod and mangrove jacks love them too.
You can also try baits of sea worms, prawns and bread in the canals when the bite is a little slow. Light weights and the use of a float can help especially if fishing with kids.

Mangrove jacks are also prevalent at the moment with good catches being reported from Soverign Island, Hope Island and even the Gold Coast Sea Way.
Most anglers are specifically targetting them during the day with lures like Jackall Transams, Lucky Craft Pointers and paddle tail soft plastics. casting at pontoons and bridge pylons is highly effective but some anglers are picking up a few trolling the deeper parts of the systems. If fishing at night try using baits of mullet fillet or livebaits. Try not to weight it to heavily as you want the bait to move around in the current for better results.

There is plently of shelter from bank vegitation in the upper river systems and the bass are still on the chew. The upper Brisbane river through Fernvale and Twin Bridges is fishing well early in the mornings with small surface lures and spinnerbaits. There are a few Yellowbelly being caught and these are falling for deeper divers like the Jackall Geronimo or Ecogear ZX blades. The upper Nerang is a little more consistant but it is still dirty from all the rain so darker coloured lures or baits of worms would be better choices.
