Weekly Report 29 Mar 13

Post by Brad » Fri Mar 29, 2013 7:35 am

G'day every one, rain or shine fishing is always fine. It has been great conditions for fishing early mornings. The wind picking up from the storm late afternoon Saturday didn't stop excellent fishing results. On Friday when one of the locals went out & did some fishing in the bay he bought back a couple of 3kg Sweet Lip on 2in Bass Assassins. It was also the first fish displayed on our Angler Board. The boys & I went out in the boat Sunday, looking for fresh prawns first which produced about a bucketful from the moored boats at Redland Bay.

From there we headed out to North Western side of Peel Island, the birds were hovering & we found large schools of whitebait & it wasn't long before the Tuna/Bonito showed up smashing the surface, jumping out of the water. We were all rigged up ready to go with Lazer pro spinners 20g blue & we caught about 15 great fun on light gear. The trick is when you find them, try to anticipate which direction they are heading then try to be in front of the school but keep about 20 metres or so they can swim straight pass the boat. Try to throw the slug past the school then wind back through the school at a fast rate of knots the tunas instinct is to eat then ask questions later.

We also dropped a couple of marinated pillys down at the mouth of Rous Chanel and picked up a few plate size Snapper for dinner, we went through 1kg of pillys in 1 hour they were on the bite, Snapper have also been caught up at Harry Atkinsons & around Peel Island. Crabs, crabs & more crabs, anywhere & everywhere close to the banks around the islands & main land as long as you don't leave them out too long or keep an eye on them. Also remember to clearly mark your floats and your pots. Had a report of a few boys catching reef fish off shore near Shag Rock, Snapper, Sweet Lip, Gold Spotted Wrasse and a few Pearly as well. Whiting have been caught off the jetty at Victoria Point. There are plenty around & they are loving the blood worms as well. I hope u can get out over the week, from the crew at VP bait & Tackle, Frandon, Jo & Justin.
