Weekly Report 27 Jun 11

Post by Brad » Mon Jun 27, 2011 7:42 am

School holidays are hear again so welcome to all our visitors on the Sunshine Coast. This week weather wise it will be safer to have a crack around the estuarys like Noosa, Maroochydore and Caloundra. If there is a chance to get out early morning before the wind blows in then target reefs like the Caloundra 5, 7 &12 Mile for snapper and pearl perch. Cobia are also worth targeting around the shallow reefs at the mentioned reefs and live yakkas are deadly on them. If you want to stay in closer then Murphy's and the Gneerings should be the next option. There have been plenty of quality snapper taken in this area particularly on sunrise when the tide is at the change. Of course dusk always produces more fish but you have to be able to work around the weather.

Old Womens Island on the northern side will be well protected and out of the wind so it is also worth a shot. There are many scattered pieces of reef close to it and further out so sound around until you either find a bait school or fish on the sounder. Coming home stick close to the beach so that you are semi protected from the south westerlies. Best baits for snapper and pearlies has been squid and fresh fillets of yakkas or other species including mullet. The Coffee Rock on the northern tip of Bribie Island just south from the lighthouse is a great area to try for cobia and mulloway. Live bait can be sourced from around the channel markers near by.

The estuaries will be the safest bet this week and there are still plenty of opportunities particularly around the mouth or bar areas. Maroochy River mouth is the place to target tailor, mulloway and big bream or head back around to the cod hole for better protection. The area around La Balsa park in near the rock wall at Mooloolaba is full of legal bream and so to are all spots along the wall. The Pumistone Passage offers plenty of areas that are also protected but if it is whiting you are after then you will need to be out in the wind.

South of Bells Creek is the spot adjacent to the weed beds on the southern side for the whiting and the occassional good size bream. The Boardwallk in Caloundra has bream, pike and tarwhine around but don't dismiss walking along the beach from the lifesavers hut through to Happy Valley to pick up a feed of the same. Still some flathead about and if you are using soft plastics you will need to work hard and blonk it right next to their mouths to get them interested at the moment. Small chopper tailor are everywhere in the passage and when you see them busting up bait scholls lob a plastic in amongst them and hang on. The pontoons and Military Jetty are good spots for bream and flathead not to mention mulloway deep in to the night. LIve herring are a gun bait for all if you have a cast net but if not dead ones will work.

The beaches like Kings and Moffat will be the pick provided the weed stays away. Bream, sharks, tarwhine, sweetlip and tailor are all a chance at the moment. I would suggest a good look through the day and fish the holes on the low tide and the gutters during the high. There are a few good holes along the Wurtulla Strip but the fish are not around in big numbers except for dart. Enjoy you holiday fishing and have fun.
