Weekly Report 26 Aug 12

Post by Brad » Sun Aug 26, 2012 2:20 pm

Plenty of offshore action over the past week with some big snapper and pearlies taken out wider and plenty of other reef species within 9km's off Mooloolaba. At times the Caloundra reefs resembled a car park as the weather just flattened out the sea making conditions near perfect. Wide Caloundra nearer to the 100m line was one of the better spots to target and the areas around the channel markers for cobia and kingfish. Pearl perch and tuskfish were plentiful for those that looked around a little and found the schools of bait. Big kingfish were hanging around plenty of areas just waiting to ambush any bait that swam past on the pinnacles and the known wrecks. Live bait is the key to the better fish but when you can't find it then pilchards or squid will do 9 out of 10 times. Murphy's was a little overrun throughout the week but still managed to account for some nice moses perch and squire. THe biggest snapper I saw come out of the area was 4kg and that would make most anglers happy. The gneerings is still a safe bet for late afternoon fishing particularly on the anchor with plenty of berley. The coming week will be a great time to get out even though the northerlies will be up a little, makes you think that summer is already here doesn't it.

The estuaries are alive with big female flathead and plenty of bream so get some live herring in the cast net and set you trap. Smaller herring are terrific for the bream and obviously the bigger ones will be swallowed by trevally, flathead or mulloway. Herring are a very versitle bait because I use them to get crabs and believe me big muddies and sand crabs just love them. They have a very strong natural berley to them which attracts everything so give them a go this week. Whiting are still strong in numbers around the Pumistone Passage and Coochin Creek areas. The low water bar around the mouth of the Caloundra Bar or around Twin Waters are top spots to target these little fighters. Yabbies or fresh prawns are still the gun baits. The week ahead will see plenty of chopper tailor, trevally, bream and flathead taken so get some lures or live bait and get out there! Have Fun!
