Weekly Report 19 May 12

Post by Brad » Sun May 20, 2012 12:42 pm

The lead up to the new moon has really turned on the fish in particular the snapper and pearl perch. When you are not catching these two tasty species there are always tuskfish wanted to charge down a bait so expect to hook up a few times on them. Paternosta rigs are the best for all of the mentioned species and the normal baits like pichards, squid and livies are the prefered baits. The Barwon Banks is the spot to target at the moment particularly around the three sisters area for the reefies. Red throat emperor and grassies are around but you need to get your bait down beyond the many trevally and iodine bream. The pearly grounds have a number of amberjack just waiting to strip your fish of the line and there are a lot of sharks out in the deeper waters at the moment.

In closer on the Caloundra systems there are still good shows of reef varieties and plenty of livies to report. Cobia from around the wrecks and channel markers and finally a few mulloway are being taken near the coffee rock of the northern tip of Bribie Island. This shows that we are right on the nose of our winter species change over and that all is well for the moment. Smaller rat kings are haunting Old Women Island at the moment but it is a matter of right time and tide to get them. Normally the ebb tide in the morning is the way too go. The beaches have smaller chopper tailor but the same fish can be taken in the protected waters around the Pumistone Passage and near the poontoons and bridges across the Sunshine Coast. McKenzies bridge area has been a little quiet but there are still a few crabs around and smaller moses perch to be taken. Bream and flathead have ruled inside the estuaries this past week and this will continue with the new moon coming on. Live prawns are a must for quality big bream so get on to a few. Have Fun!
