Weekly Report 23 Sep 12

Post by Brad » Sun Sep 23, 2012 12:13 pm

Strong Northerly winds will be the order of the week offshore but there may be a small window of opportunity in the last couple of working days to keep boaties happy. We are quickly moving into our transition period with early warm weather and continuing winds. This will see an early season end to the winter species that can hang around in numbers for an extra couple of months. Fishing offshore will mean going deep to find the better quality fish and by deep I mean 100m plus to share among the big snapper, kingfish, pearl perch and other varieties. The closer reefs will start to see schools of tuna and other bigger predators coming in on the bait schools so it is a good idea to start changing the trebles on your slugs for the coming season and don't forget to polish them up.

Murphy's, Currimundi, Caloundra 12 mile, Sunshine and Chardons Reef systems will be worth fishing on the evening dusk tides and if you can sneak a trip in prior to work then make it happen. Moses perch, pearlies and squire are all strong targets with mowong and others making up the esky. Live bait is by far the best but pilchards and squid will to the job. Check out all the channel markers around Bray's, the northern tip of Bribie and those around the Spitfire channel for cobia because they are around at the moment. Hutchies has wahoo, mahi mahi and other big pelagic species but you will have to work to nail them.

The estruaries will be the go early this week so work the bar area around Happy Valley in Caloundra for whiting on the low tide, bream and dart amongst the surf areas. The main channel has big trevally and flathead and when they are quiet there are plenty of bream that will take a lure or a fresh herring. Whiting on poppers in the early part of the morning but once the sun comes up it slows down considerably. Still some chopper tailor within the passage and any number of mulloway that are willing to nail anything fresh. Flathead are around the pontoon at the Power Boat Club in Golden Beach so cast on the shallow side towards the club for best results. Miltary Jetty has bream, trevally, flathead around at the moment but as the day gets busy the fish move away. A good chance of a fish this week so spend some time and have a go. Remember to have fun!
