Weekly Report 14 Oct 12

Post by Brad » Sun Oct 14, 2012 6:45 pm

A good week ahead weather wise that will offer up plenty of offshore opportunities for boaties. There have been plenty of frustrated anglers across the board but for those that have not ventured offshore the estuaries have offered up plenty of quality fish. The Pumistone Passage has seen bream, flathead and whiting all within the main bar and channel areas and the Boardwalk. Trevally are hanging around the pontoons and the deeper waters along Bulcock Beach and a couple of golden trevally have been taken on small hard bodied lures through out the Pelican Waters canal system. Military Jetty is the spot for the same varieites including tailor and happy moments.

Currimundi Lake has a few smaller whiting and flathead along the shallow flats leading towards the ocean. Mangrove jack are scarce in this system and that is because the area is not open enough to the ocean throughout the year. The canals around Kawana Island and McKenzies bridge are the better spots to try for jack and if you can get them live poddy mullet are just sensational. The Maroochy River recently was home to a catch of a 130cm barra so guess where everyone was on the weekend just past. Good catches of trevally and small mulloway around the cod hole and still quality whiting being taken near the river mouth and around Twin Waters weir. The rock walls around Bli Bli and the cane farms are worth targeting with soft plastics and small hard bodied shallow divers for bream and mulloway.

Early in the week will be the time to try the beaches if you are considering a run up around Tewantin to Noosa North shore up to Double Island. There are some fantastic holes along the run that will surely hold quality permit and bream. Long tail tuna are swimming in smaller schools up around the Noosa Reefs and it will be worth looking for them up around Coolum and the far end of the Gneerings through out the week ahead. It is a little early for big numbers but the bait schools are in and that will mean tuna and school mackerel will follow, if numbers stay consistent.

Stick to the know reefs for your best chances before the northerlies hit for a few sweetlip and squire this week on the tide changes. Moses perch and mowong are also on the chew around Murphy's so they are worth a shot. The known wrecks will be the go for some cobia and big yellowtail kingies this week and if it is quiet there, or too busy, head out to Wide Caloundra to target some early season pelagics. The deeper water will get you the better results on the reef species so if you can get a day off early in the week take advantage of the weather and head out to the deep blue. Good times ahead so have fun!
