Weekly Report 12 Aug 12

Post by Brad » Sun Aug 12, 2012 10:31 am

The end of this week will some some good conditions for snapper and pearl perch. The new moon will be upon us again and it is normally a cracker time to be out and amongst the fish. The weather around mid week should start to offer up opportunites to get out but if the weather blows up then hit the estuaries because there is plenty happening there as well. Out wide on the Banks some quality snapper have been taken along with kingfish and amberjack. Fishing the morning tides and throughout the day has been successful but quality livies is still a difficult options. Cobia have been smashing baits but again it is the livies you will need to make the difference. The Gneerings has resembled a parking lot lately and plenty of baits have come home with a feed. For those that wish to try Bray's Rock and Currimundi Reef the results have been encouraging and well worth the effort. Wide Caloundra is still the best spot by far for pearl perch and smaller snapper to 4kg not to mention hussar upon hussar at the moment.

Inside the Pumistone Passage has plenty of flathead and bream taking herring or live prawns if you can get them. Whiting are partial to a small yabbie or fresh squirt worms and can be caught from Coochin Creek right through to Happy Valley. The back waters at Bell's is a little quite at the moment but still a top place to take the kayak down to wet a line. MIlitary Jetty and the pontoon at Gemini are options to take the kids as there are still smaller flathead, bream and chopper tailor available. We had to work hard on the bream around the pontoons recently with four hours only produced one solitary fish and about seven lure changes. 'That's what fishing is all about' old mate explained, as I pondered whether or not to push him in the drink. For a little excitment and sport we nipped across to the flats opposite Military Jetty and chased a few stingrays on light gear and scored five in around half an hour. Work the deep water across the front of the Boardwalk for bream or mulloway into the night and who knows a monster flathead may get to the bait first. Have Fun!
