Weekly Report 27 Nov 12

Post by Brad » Tue Nov 27, 2012 7:16 pm

So the northerlies are out around this week and the opportunities to fish the full moon offshore are fast deteriorating. This is made even more frustrating with the fact that the spanish mackerel are in around the 5 & 7 mile reefs of Caloundra not to mention the spitfire channel and other known hangouts. Early mornings are the best bet to get out and set up for the pelagic run. The trench is still producing some quality wahoo and smaller marlin but you really need to put the time in at the moment. Mahi mahi have shown their heads around the outer beacons and the Barwon Banks. As expected no big ones yet as the season is still in the very early stages. There are some good bait schools around the 40 ft line out the front of Point Cartwright down to the shark nets so it is worth pulling in before heading out to the reefs.

The Barwon Banks is a little hit and miss but fishing the deeper waters will give you the best chance of success in the coming weeks leading up to the new moon phase. Heading up around the hards is the best bet but unfortunately it is either a good day or a total waste of fuel. The inner reefs are still worth a troll for mackerel but you will need to get your baits right down onto their heads. Either sinkers or downriggers will assist you here. There are a few tuna schools around and it still remains the luck of the draw or being in the right spot at the right time. Further north around Noosa is more productive in this field.

The estuaries are quiet but bream on plastics and blades are still a stack of fun. Compared to other estuary systems we are in pretty good shape considering the pressure that it on the Passage. Trevally are stalking the pontoons and bridge around Pelican Waters and it is worth a visit to the area around Military Jetty in the wee hours of the morning for happy moments, bream, flathead and trevally. Hardy Heads and herring are full on in the passage and make terrific live bait. Mullet are also in good numbers if you know where to find them and smaller gar. The Caloundra Bar has some monster trevally cruising the area and the trick here is trying to get them to take you bait because there is so much around the passage. Work the deep drop off across the western bank of Bribie Island for flathead and bream and what a terrific spot it is to take the kids and spend an afternoon. The Boardwalk is still full of hopeful anglers and a few are catching a some nice flathead on the tide changes. Should be a potentially good week and for those that can get out you will have fun!
