Weekly Report 9 Nov 12

Cracker of a week on the water across the Sunshine Coast this week and boy hasn't it been a long time since I have said that. Quality fish out wide around the Barwon Banks and Wide Caloundra with pearl perch and snapper all being taken on baits. The bigger predators were also out in force with mahi mahi, wahoo and small marlin being taken out wider along the trench and the deeper end of tempest. Trolling has accounted for most of the bigger species except for the cobia and kingfish. The blocks out near Hutchies and the known wrecks are all holding cobia up to 10kg with both live baits and paternosta rigs taking fish. The channel markers on the northern tip of Bribie have held good yakkas and its little wonder that the cobia are hanging around. Could jacks are beig accounted for on the reefs along with tuskfish and some extraordinary sized mowong at the moment. The Inner areas are worth targeting for stray mackerel and a number of reefies. Not many tuna showing up still very patchy but that is what we can expect at this time of year.

The estuaries are terrific for flathead, bream, jack and bream with a couple of smashing mangrove jack taken recently around the rock wall walking area in Kawana Island. What a top spot to walk around and throw a lure or two as you get fit! Poddy mullet set under a float are jsut the ticket to entice the jack out of their hidden lairs and attack. Try letting the float drift in to the snags with the wind for best results. Chopper tailor still within the Pumicestone Passage along with some snorker whiting at the moment. Squirt or bloodworms are the gun bait for these guys and if they are too hard to get a hold off try some yabbies or peeled prawns. The bridge under Pelican Waters has been a little slow lately but persistence is the key to success in this game. THis is still a good spot to try for jack and mulloway along with any other species that swims. It all depends on what tide and time you are fishing as to whether or not you will succeed.

This week we have a new moon but some northerly days in between. This will be the time to tackle the beaches and estuaries in the evening or early mornings for best results. Offshore you will need to get out before the wind gets up and there will be some top days at this stage leading up to the moon phase. Strap yourself in boys....it's going to be a corker. Have Fun!
