Weekly Report 22 Jun 12

Some great catches of qualtiy snapper still coming in across the board. Every reef system is alive with snapper from 2 - 9kg's at the moment which is pleasing. Big pearlies have been taken out around Caloundra Wide and the northern end of the Barwon Banks. Fishing the depths has been rewarding for big amberjack and the occassion toothy shark. Tuskfish on the drift across the steps on the southern end of the Banks and around the Caloundra 12 mile at the moment. Cobia are still coming up on the latest reports but not too many fish over 20kg yet, but they will come soon. Trag jew are hanging around really late in the season and are being caught in the usual haunts in about 50m of water. Murphy's has moses perch, pearlies and squire on it along with the Inner & Outer Gneerings. There have been some big squid also caught on the Gneerings Shoal in the past week so just imagine what it will be like on the full moon.

The Pumistone Passage is loaded with mulloway and the smaller 'soapy jew' as they are called. The bridge around Pelican Waters around to Military Jetty is a good area to start for them. Live herring, prawns or worms are gun baits to tempt these terrific fighters to bite. The bream have remained around in good numbers and smaller herring are really working a treat on them. Whiting are hit and miss at the moment and truthfully it is a matter of being in the right place at the right time to really get amongst them. Fresh bait like yabbies, peeled prawns or soldier crabs are the better choices to nail some. Drummer are still being taken at the Boardwalk and a few flathead have been enticed to bite with soft plastics from the Caloundra Coast Guard pontoon around to Happy Valley. Tailor on the beaches along with small dart, whiting and bream so they are worth a try. La Balsa park has gar fish on the last bend before exiting through the bar. The coming week is going to be very average for offshore work so throw a plastic into one of the many rivers or estuary systems around to have some fun. The picture shows that there are quality snapper about on the reefs.
