Weekly Report 5 Jul 11

Post by Brad » Tue Jul 05, 2011 8:04 pm

A great couple of days offshore has produced plenty of cobia near the shallow reef systems and all the pinnacles around Wide Caloundra and the Noosa Wreck. Fish exceeding 30kg have been caught using live yakkas or slimies and some lucky fishermen have even nailed them on old pilchards. The reefies have also been on the chew with snapper, red throat and grassy sweetlip have all fallen victim to baits but there are a few that have been caught using 7" soft plastics particularly in the white colour. Pearl perch and parrot are certainly about and the areas around the bottom of the Barwon Banks around the rock area are producing well. Red emperor are reported around Old Women's Island along with some squire so that will be worth a shot in the south westerlies.

The estuaries are slow but full of smaller fish like bream and whiting however there is a feed for anglers if you are prepared to move around and work for your catch. The area around Military Jetty has been popular over the past week along with Pelican Waters bridge and the pontoon at Gemini Towers. The sand flats out from Bell's Creek holds whiting and some smaller flathead but around the back of Bell's is really quite dead at the moment.Currimundi Lake is rated about the same and it is my guess that it is time council got off its butt and opened the entrance. There is some good weather coming in a week or so which should be enough time to see the fish absolutely starving for a good bait. Have Fun!
