Weekly Report 18 Dec 11

Post by Brad » Sun Dec 18, 2011 3:42 pm

Whilst the weather has not made fishing easy there has certainly been a few cracker fish about. Sunday we ventured out and got amongst the hundreds of birds that were flying and smashing into bait schools. The bait balls consisted of mack tuna, skip jack, whitebait and pilchards. There were some thumper yellow fin tuna chewing on them along with XOS amberjack, kingfish and some mackerel. We landed one 7kg yellow fin which took a deep diving rapala and caught a 15kg amberjack on a small 50g slug that was cast into a breaking bait school. On the tide change is the best time to target fish as they seem to come alot closer to the surface right on either a low or high tide run. There are still plenty of reef species to be caught including pearl perch, snapper, iodine bream, tuskfish and many others from Murphy's through to the Barwon Banks.

Everyone is waiting for the mackerel to come on the chew in numbers but until this southerly blow goes away there will be little chance. The estuaries are quiet but still a few flathead and plenty of whiting have been taken. Work around the sand flats and channel drop of for both in the Pumicestone Passage and along the many jetties and pontoons at Maroochydore. The bream are still a little small but a few nice fish were taken around Military Jetty on the morning high tide. Not to many trevally or tarpon about at the moment but as things hot up so will the fishing. Have a great xmas and happy new year everyone.

I would be off to the Caloundra 12 mile for the better chance of mackerel and dollies. There are some terrific yellow fin schools out that way as well. From there you can always work in closer with the birds. There have been a few reports of spotties hanging around the gneerings but they are not thick. Head wide and get some parrot and snapper on board during the tide changes.

Good Luck
Brad
