Weekly Report 27 May 11

Post by Brad » Fri May 27, 2011 11:20 am

Opportunities galore this coming week for successful outside reef trips so get ready to rock. Target the inner reefs in the evenings for snapper, pearl perch, moses perch and iodine bream and in the middle of the day hit the deeper spots and target the cobia, amberjack and pearlies. Wide Caloundra will be a top spot to target these species and a careful eye should be kept out for birds working bait schools because there is bound to be tuna and mackerel around. There has been plenty of small snapper to 50cm around the Gneerings Shoal over th past days but loads of pickers are really making it hard on Murphy's at the moment. Old Womens Island will be the go for squid this coming week and late night trips will be in order but remember to rug up. A great fish on SUnday with mack tuna around Old Womens Island and plenty of grassy sweetlip on the bottom. The Outer Gneering also produced some quality snapper on floating baits.

The estuaries have good bream with some monsters over the 40cm mark being taken from the Boardwalk in Caloundra recently. The average size is a very good 31-35cm so it looks like a good season ahead. Still plenty of bait about and pike available to catch around the pontoons and jetties before first light and just after the tide change. Whiting are sparce but when you find them working the shallows stay with them for a feed. Coochin Creek is producing the best catches of whiting and small yabbies and blood worms are the best baits. Tarwhine are about the rocks near Happy Valley and a few whiting on the very low tides.

Dont froget the Shane Stewart Memorial Fishing Competition is being held June 10 – 12 (Queens Birthday Long Weekend) and you can register with Caloundra Coast Guard or go online to the web site and download the entry form. This is a great competition and is usually well supported by local and anglers from afar. Good Luck! www.shanestewartfishingcompetition.com.au
