Weekly Report 25 Sep 11

Post by Brad » Sun Sep 25, 2011 9:04 am

Plenty of fish caught around the Sunshine Coast last week with good reports of pearl perch, parrot, sweetlip and cod all being taken around the Caloundra Reefs. The inner systems saw plenty of action with boaties cramming into position for a chance to land a holiday keeper. Murphy's gave up some quality pearlies and a few good squire but all the talk was centred around the tuna schools and the kingfish that were slamming jigs and live baits on the known haunts. Cobia up to 20kg were taken on live yakkas and large pilchards and their cousin the yellowtail kingfish came in around the 8-10kg mark on the outer reefs. Old Women's Iland reports are minimal with few reef species being taken. Currimundi Reef through to Bray's Rock saw a lot of action particularly trolling and float lining for any pelagic species that would slam theirs baits. Out wide on the Barwon Banks reefies were the order with any number of species including trag being taken throughout the day.

The Boardwalk in Caloundra has some quality flathead being caught and missed. Live pike are accounting for the bigger females and some good size trevally are mixed up with them. Bream and whiting are still being caught around the jetties and pontoons right through to Happy Valley. The Blue Hole is seeing to much activity at the moment to be producing any descent fish but stick it out during the evening because it is the main joining channel and will carry all the fish at one stage. Whiting around the weed beds south of Bells Creek and along the shallow banks across the Esplanade at Golden Beach. The Power Boat Club area is also a good stop for some flathead from the pontoon in the early mornings as is Military Jetty. Lots of small bream and pickers around the Pelican Waters bridge but bigger fish are below them. Try using large herring or half a pike for better luck.

The weather forcast for the week ahead is not terribly attractive to fishing but there will be spots that you can get out of the wind. Certain spots within the Pumistone Passage and Maroochy River will be protected so look around. Offshore won't see too much action until later in the week. Have Fun!
