Weekly Report 16 Aug 11

Post by Brad » Tue Aug 16, 2011 7:38 am

Mixed reports from the weekend just passed with very few reefies of any size being taken. It seems much the same as the week before where fish showed on the sounder but very few took a biat or plastic. The good news is the amount of pelagics and tuna out the front of Mooloolaba. Yesterday (Monday) mutton birds and gulls where around in their hundres as the food chain produced its normal spectacle. We spent a couple of hours trolling and casting to breaking schools but did not strike anything until we moved to a cobia spot and nailed around 15 cobia for the afternoon. The biggest fish went 21kg caught by yours truely and most of the other species that were caught and released topped the 10kg mark comfortably. The conditions were poor but as the afternoon went on things settled just a little. To top off our day three whales circled the boat for a good half hour showing off their new calf. They were so close at times it was amazing despite our best efforts to move away they wanted to get up close and personel. I will post some photos next week.

There are still drummer around the Boardwalk in Caloundra, no where near as many as a couple of weeks ago but some blokes are still getting their limit each tide change. Bream are still plentiful around the pontoons and bridges along with trevally which seem to be congregating within the canals at Pelican Waters. Herring & pike are again thick so bag a few of these great live baits. The pike are exceptionally good bait for the tailor that are cruizine around the deeper channels but remember to use plenty of weight to hold the bait steady. Whiting can be caught in the shallow down near the sialing club and along the Esplanade strip down towards Golden Beach. Just walk the sand bars casting into the shallows with either poppers or bait for best results. Weather wise it is a little up and down but the fishing over the next couple of days should really improve considering the moon phase. Try fishing around the closer reefs for snapper and pearl perch on the evening tide for best results. Have Fun!

Brad,
Is it to much to ask the approximate area for the Cobia : ) For my two boys 14,12 to have some good weighted fishing. Cheers
