Weekly Report 26 Oct 12

Post by Brad » Fri Oct 26, 2012 7:31 pm

Again with the weather! Mid next week looks like the best time to get out and test the stories of long tail tuna and school mackerel coming around in dribs and drabs. There is every chance of running in to them but it is a bit of the right place at the right time. November will continue in that fashion but if you are prepared to put in the time then you will get the results. Out wide there are still some opportunities on wahoo and other pelagics. Early season mahi mahi are hanging around the markers, FAD's and buoys. A well cast slug or close by troll will offer the best chance of fish.

The reefs may well be a little slow but there are still fish for the taking. Pearl perch, late season snapper and tuskfish will be the species to hit and the humble paternosta rig will account for plenty. Pilchards and squid the top two frozen baits but fresh butterfly yakkas make an awesome alternative. Of course a live slimie or yakka will bring you some quality know matter where you are. Targeting the Gneerings and Murphy's may well be productive on the moon change that is fast approaching.

The estuaries are packed with fighters like flathead, trevally, mangrove jack, bream and whiting so that makes them the pick at the moment. There are plenty of options to get out of the wind and normally the fish are right there with the same idea. Herring and hardi heads are plentyiful so get some of them on the end of the line and watch what happens. Military Jetty, the Caloundra Bar mouth and the pontoons around Gemini Towers are good spots to have a crack for some trevally and flahtead. Gar and poddy mullet are certainly the main menu for big female lizards and jack at the moment.

If you have time to get around the Maroochy River then try around the bridge at Bli Bli and work the shallow areas close to the boat ramp for whiting and flathead. The deeper holes around the cod hole and Twin Waters weir are right on the money for trevally and your small blades will work well here. Poppers in the morning around Chambers Island with the kids will result in smaller whiting but I promise the kids won't care. The mouth still has a variety of tailor, a few mulloway and cracker bream. Great week coming up with the full moon and big tides, so get out and have fun!!
