Weekly Report 21 Aug 11

Post by Brad » Sun Aug 21, 2011 3:12 pm

A fairly less than average week ahead weather wise but the rain will make a good difference particularly around the creeks and waterways. Once everything settles there should be a good post winter run of crabs around the Mooloolah and Maroochy Rivers bringing on some of the more predatory species. Mulloway have been around in good numbers but you still need to put in the time to get the results. The deeper channels are the better areas to fish for them and a variety of large green prawns, worms and live pike or herring will steer you in the right direction. Trevally have been fairly active over the past month only slowing on the cooler days. They have been taken on baits, a number of 5" soft plastics and smaller hard bodied lures. The bream this month have improved with strong catches around the Pumistone Passage and Maroochy River system. Quality fish this season has meant anything from 750 - 900grms but when you can get a feed easily no one cares about not cracking the magic kilo mark to often. The whiting are schooling closer tothe weed beds south of Bells Creek and along the front off the northern tip of Bribie Island. There are still drummer being taken off the boardwalk in Caloundra on the still of the tidal run.

Offshore the coffee rock out from Bribie Island has its share of cobia and mulloway with livies being taken from the beacons channel markers nearby. Bray's Rock, Rapers and Currimundi Reef are all great spots to try for early season mackerel and the big mack tuna that are nailing bait schools at the moment. I nailed a heafty 6kg model only on Friday evening just before sundown. Plenty of snapper to 65cm around the Gneerings and Murphy's Reef areas along with pan sized pearl perch and the odd tuskfish. In the deeper waters between 60 -80m there have been some thumper kingfish taken and heavy fighting cobia on live yakkas or very big pilchards. Nothing else is really making them strike at the moment. The remainder of the week is shot as far as the weather goes but after the rain the fish will be on like there is no tomorrow. Get ready and remember that fishing is about fun!
