Weekly Report 4 Sep 11

Post by Brad » Sun Sep 04, 2011 4:35 pm

It was a great period for fishng over the new moon period but the weather has caught up with us again putting any chance of an offshore fish too bed for another week. Pearl perch and snapper were around again out at Wide Caloundra and the deeper waters near the Basault Knob and the norther end of the Hards. There are still quite a few trag jew around but they will go quite with the way the weather is heading. Hopefully we will be able to get out shortly before the next full moon to get in to the squid around the Gneering Shoals and Old Women's Island. Trevally have really come on the chew with numbers on all the wrecks and known reef spots. Right through to Noosa they were being landed three at a time on paternosta rigs. Cobia are still around outside but again getting to them at the moment is tough.

The coming week should be used for some quality estuary fishing with opportunities for mangrove jack starting to come to light. It is very early but a few have been smashing live poddy mullet in the channels around McKenzies bridge at Minyama. Early mornings seem to be the best time to target them at the moment. DOA 3" prawns are also a top alternative for chasing them and will also pull you either flathead or bream which makes them a good contender for the tackle box. The Pumistone Passage has bream and trevally around the canals at Pelican Waters and good flathead around Military Jetty right through to Bell's Creek. While the southerlies are blowing the whiting have moved into the calm back waters and fish around 40cm's have been taken on yabbies. There are still plenty of pike available around the Boardwalk but you will need to be targeting them just before or on the crack of dawn, as soon as that sun is up it is all over until later in the day.

Happy Valley and the northern tip of Bribie Island will be a good spot to get to this week to fish for monster flathead and bigger trevally around the eddies out from the main channel. The change of the tide is exceptionally good to target hard fighting trevally and the bottom of the tide is the time to target the whiting in the shallow gutters. Kings beach is worth a cast off the rocks with some small 15-20gram chrome or gold slugs for a shot at the mackerel. There still seems to be some stragglers so you may get lucky. The rock wall around Mooloolaba is also worth a trip on the evening high tides for mulloway, trevally, quality bream and even an occassional tuna. If you are desperate for some better opportunities try the cod hole in Maroochydore in the dad of the night for the same. Have Fun!
