Weekly Report 7 Jul 12

Post by Brad » Sun Jul 08, 2012 10:23 am

Another top week on the Sunshine Coast for bad weather. The offshore southerlies are howling againa and are set to continue for a few more days yet and then the northerlies will come on. The last full moon period bought with it some big tides and some big snapper and pearlies. The Barwon Banks and Wide Caloundra all produced amberjack and plenty of pearl perch. We were fortunate enough to get a 6kg pearly on board after about 20 minutes of wrestling but what a fish! For anglers there are plenty of pan size snapper out on the reefs. (pic) The closer reefs still are a good target for a few fish with many smaller species being taken throughout the evenings. Moses perch and kingfish can be caught on the deeper pinnacles around Murphy's and Currimundi is worth a look so to is Brays Rock once the winds die down. The beach scene is a little tough at the moment with rough conditions making it tough. The rips don't help but if you wnat to get some nice tailor or a mulloway then it is worth rugging up and having a go. Work the Wurtulla strip between Warana and Point Cartwright.

In the estuaries mulloway are still smashing bait. They may only be 3-4kg's but what a tough critter they are on light gear. They have always been a fish that will pull hard and take drag so have a go around the Pelican Waters bridge and the deeper water holes around the Cod Hole and the main channel near that runs along the Boardwalk section. I have noticed that it is hard to get a spot some nights but that's fishing. A fair seaason so far on the drummer but good fresh green weed and cabbage is best sort from your local tackle store as the supply around here is fairly scarse. Whiting are hitting poppers and blades around Twin Waters and the last bend before the mouth of the Maroochy River mouth. The weir has trevally and good size bream. Have Fun!
Pan size snapper are around at the moment
