Weekly Report 1 May 11

Post by Brad » Sun May 01, 2011 11:20 am

The possibility of a mid week adventure to the outer reefs has finally got the blood pumping after what has been too long between bent rods. Offshore has little in the way of reports because of obvious reasons however the estuaries are certainly enjoying a boost in popularity. The bread and butter varieites flathead, bream and whiting are most sort after in the Maroochy River and Pumistone Passage areas and they have not disappointed. It is still a little while before we will enjoy the fruits of winter as far as big bream go but they are around and live prawns or yabbies are the way to make them take a look. The rocky areas and bridge pylons still hold a few surprises in mangrove jack, cod and chopper tailor. Evening fishing with live mullet in the deeper channels and around the mouths is the way to go for mulloway, trevally and tailor. The area surrounding McKenzies Bridge is a great spot to take the kids for some whiting, moses perch or bream and it is a top spot to spend the day with a picnic as is the Boardwalk and Happy Valley area in Caloundra.

Work the bottom of the tide and fish the holes on the beach for bream and whiting along with plenty of undersized dart at the moment. Beach access along the Wurtulla strip allows plenty of scope to find a nice hole and target it before the rips set in. Prawns and fish flesh are gun baits in these areas including off the rocks at Point Cartwright down to Shelly's & Kings beaches. Moffat beach is still a little quiet but a few sweetlip have been taken after dark and Kings is the spot for whiting but you will have to work around the protected areas to have a chance. Have Fun!
