Weekly Report 15 May 11

Post by Brad » Sun May 15, 2011 9:34 am

Cool weather has really made it tough around the estuaries as the fish are running for cover and warmer pockets of water to relax in. Flathead are best targeted in the shallow areas in the middle of the day with soft plastics or small hardbodies lures like damiki's or smaller classics. The DOA 3" Prawn is accounting for some good fish including some trevally when worked slowly on the retrieve. Bream are around but just getting that bite period right can be frustrating. Fresh or live prawns, strips of chicken or yabbies have been accounting for the better numbers and there are still plenty of pickers around. Military Jetty has bream, pike, chopper tailor and the odd flathead about but come rugged up because as that sun rises you will freeze. The mullet are starting to jump about but the school are still scattered and offer the opportunity to get some fresh bait. Herrings are still about around Currimundi Lake and the pontoons and jetties within the Passage.

McKenzies bridge has an abundance of undersize moses perch and bream. Fishing the high tide in the middle of the evening can offer some nice catches of mulloway and the beauty about this area is that you can fish it in a boat or from the land. La Balsa park has bream and chopper tailor breaking the surface whilst chasing bait schools so take a very small 15g metal slug with you and have it ready to go if they smash the surface. Soft plastics will do the same job as long as you are ready to go. The rock wall at Mooloolaba still has the occassional tuna and tailor being taken from it but mostly bream are about.

Offshore has been difficult with the wind and waves out wider but that has not stopped the large schools of long tail tuna and mackerel smashing about further north around Coolum. A trip there on Saturday was just a fishing haven with bustups everywhere. Birds were working the same areas for 40 minutes and fighting amongst the fish for a feed. Still grassy sweetlip around the Gneerings and plenty of iodine bream and moses perch on Murphy's at the moment. Early morning trips to beat the wind are the best shots for fish but again get rugged up. There is no relief in sight from the strong south easterlies this week so take care. Have Fun!
