Weekly Report 14 Nov 11

Post by Brad » Mon Nov 14, 2011 7:34 am

Just the same as last week out wide with strong northerlies making reef fishing difficult throughout the day. The best time to wet a line is early morning around 4.30am and fish through the tide change until the wind comes up. There have been trout taken around the Inner Gneerings along with sweetlip and the occassion pearl perch. The Outer Gneerings also holds some quality fish during the tide changes particularly in the early morning or on dusk. There are small rat king fish around the eastern edge of Old Women's Island and a couple have been caught around the Mooloolaba 9km marker buoy. There have also been reports of quality wahoo and cobia being taken around Flinders and Hutchies and a few mackerel around the Caloundra 5 mile region. Spotty mackerel are scarce but if you can't get out in the wind try out the front of Point Cartwright. Using live baits or rigged dead ones on a very slow troll is the best method to catch them. Use berley where possible along your run to get the fish active and to keep them in the area.

The estuaries are full of small whiting with some real corkers mixed in amongst them. Walking along the many exposed sand bars in the Pumistone Passage at low tide is the way to cast and find these fish. Bream and flathead are often the bicatch when targeting whiting so it can be a pretty good day all round. Remember to use the sunscreen because the sun has a big bite in it at the moment. There are not too many spots left to fish along the Boardwalk now with council closing another area to fishing last Friday. The area around the BBQ's up from the newly renovated Boardwalk is now not accessable to fishermen at all. I will be meeting this morning with council to discuss how this rail roading came about. For now though fishing from the Boardwalk is the last option and there are some trevally and still good quality flathead around. Have Fun!

Here is an answer to a question from last weeks report: Gemini Towers is situated along The Esplanade at Golden Beach. Gemini is a two tower building that is directly after Fraser Park. At the southern end of the park just before the two towers there is a pontoon which is an excellent fishing platform. Directly next door is a patrolled swimming area in the Pumistone Passage.

Brad,

thanks found the Gemini pontoon no luck but went to Military jetty (Thursday 24 Nov) and on a live herring pulled in a 60 cm flathead, was nice for dinner Friday night.

regards Steve
