Weekly Report 7 May 12

Post by Brad » Mon May 07, 2012 4:38 pm

How good was it to see calm water conditions in close over the long weekend. Offshore around the 3km mark things started to get a little hairy but the opportunity to fish without too many issues was fantastic. This week is a good one to target the reef species across the inner reef systems around early morning or after dark for best results. If you can only get out through the day then there is a chance of a few cobia around the traps on live yakkas. Low tide is the best time to target cobia on the reefs but around the channel markers there is a chance all day long. The beacons are worth a trip for them and the new artifical reef system around the spitfire channel during the day. Things were pretty quiet around Old Womens Island on the weekend but for a few bream and happy moments it would have been better to have a swim. Some good sweetlip and red throat emperor were taken around Murphy's and they will be the target for the coming weeks along with moses perch.

The beaches are already experiencing good mulloway and a few tailor so get down there in the next couple of weeks. Around Caloundra Bar in the deeper channel there are some monsters showing up on the sounder. These are possibly trevally and mulloway. A new area has been cut into the northern tip of Bribe making it a perfect back wash for whiting and bream. This spot is worth a try on the tidal changes and can be spotted from Happy Valley. There were in fact a couple of very early season luderick caught during the past week but they will not be around in good numbers I wouldn't think for some time yet. Look for bream around the pontoons and Boardwalk this week. As we slip into the dark side of the moon, it will be worth setting out in the evenings chasing bigger bream and tailor throughout the estuaries and bars. There are good numbers of flathead around the canals and waterways around Mooloolaba and Maroochydore so keep a soft plastic on the line ready to go. Have Fun!
