Weekly Report 6 Dec 12

Post by Brad » Thu Dec 06, 2012 6:52 pm

Some awesome reports on the big fish out Wide Caloundra this week with quality wahoo being taken on the troll. Skirts and deep divers are accounting for them and there has been a few monsters mixed amongst them. Still mahi mahi about but only pups at the moment but the bigger bulls will be around in no time. Nearly time for Santa so I guess everyone is asking where has the year gone as am I. If you are in the hunt for some reefies then you will not have to go to far to get a few. Murphy's and the Gneerings are full of smaller moses perch, pearlies and tuskfish. The deeper reefs have better quality but not the numbers at the moments. Fishng the cooler part of the day will reward you better and the humble pilchard and squid will steer you in the right direction. Mowong seem to be croppig up everywhere and when things are quiet they are a terrific fighter, sadly we always expect a better species than a mother in law fish. There are mackerel around the 7 & 12 mile reefs around Caloundra and the Spitfire Channel. You can also try the spoil grounds out from the northern tip of Bribie Island when things are a little quiet. Live yakkas or slimey mackerel are the best baits but if you are having trouble finding them then whiptails will do the job.

The Barwon Banks has fished better in the early mornings this week and some quality mangrove jack have been caught out there along with pearl perch and thousands of bloody iodine bream. Working the areas around Old Womens may reward you with a mackerel or Currimundi and Brays Rock may be a better option depending on where you live. Don't dismiss the front of Point Cartwright when targeting mackerel as plenty of livies congregate with 500m offshore brining in the pelagics. My money will be on trolling into the late afternoon until the weather turns and the winds get up later in the week.

The estuaries have bream and whiting around the traps with some cracker flathead being taken in the La Balsa Park strip. McKenzies bridge is quiet and has been now for a number of weeks but the surrounding areas hold good numbers of crabs so set a pot and enjoy some fresh crab meat. The canals around Pelican Waters and Kawana Island all hold plenty of smaller bream for the lure and plastic fishermen but during the middle of the day it can be absolutely dead so pick your times well. Try fishing around Happy Valley for whiting on the low tide particularly up on the surf break and you may catch a few smaller dart for some fun. The beaches hold bream, whiting and dart but once that wind gets up you might as well pack up and head home. Moffat Beach is quiet apart from a few happy moments and bream and around to Dicky Beach things have not improved much in the past couple of weeks. The Wurtulla strip still has a few holes worth investigating at low tide.

For my money a quick trip around the beacons out from Caloundra or Brays Rock would be worth while and if the weather holds hit the 12 mile for or the spoil grounds for mackerel. If Mooloolaba is where you launch then there are plenty of options like Old Women's, the Gneerings or Murphy's for reefies or perhaps mackerel even out to the blinker. Have Fun!
