Weekly Report 21 Mar 11

Post by Brad » Mon Mar 21, 2011 1:12 pm

Outstanding reports from all aspects of fishing over the past week with some extraodinary fish being taken. Big spaniards around the Caloundra 12 mile area and out as far as Wide Caloundra. Hutchinson Shoal has good size cobia around and the deeper reefs are giving up fish to eager fishermen who love to jig. Kingfish have been really hungry of late so try a jig next time you are out. Mahi mahi and wahoo are all being taken in close on trolled skirts and both deep and shallow diving hard bodies. Floating baits are still accounting for more mackerel around the traps particularly North Reef and around the Gneerings area. Even good size marlin have been on the chew but for those that hit the inner reefs over the past days they have been rewarded with plenty of sweetlip, red throat emperor, cod, pearl perch, snapper and mowong. The grassies are really running hot at the moment and a simple paternosta rig will get you your fair share. Try Murphy's for an evening fish this week as there should be some brilliant fishing going into the evening. The Caloundra 5 & 7 mile reefs were also packed with mackerel hunters and between spotties and a few spaniards there were cobia taking the lines.

The estuaries did not match the excitment outside but there are still bream and flathead around Happy Valley and Military Jetty. Fish the Cod Hold late in the evening for bigger bream or mulloway. Live prawns are the absolute best on these species. The Maroochy River has mulloway around the Cod Hole and the entrance with bream running along the rock walls heading to BLi BLi bridge. The boardwalk in Caloundra will be the spot to target over the coming days for all your bread and butter varieties. Still plenty of live bait around so use it where you can.

The middle of this week will be the time to take a sickie because the weather will be outstanding offshore. Target the known outer reefs at the Barwon Banks and WIde Caloundra for best results or fish the closer reefs in the very early mornings or late evenings for the bigger fish. Live bait will serve you well offshore. Next week some great pics of snapper that they are catching at Lakes Entrance at the moment.
