Update Report - 26 Dec 12

Still plenty of spotty mackerel around from Noosa to Caloundra and within the Moreton Bay area. There are some descent spaniards mixed in amongst them but I would not be concentrating on them with the opportunity to get a few fresh schoolies for the fridge. Pearl perch and tuskfish within the local reef areas with some big kings hanging around the Kosi and Wide Caloundra haunts. Cobia are in numbers but the issue is there are normally about 10 boats dropping for them and they spook very easily. It is actually amazing how quickly they can turn off the bite or come on it for that matter. Patience and live bait are the key to nailing a quality cobia over 15kg. Mixed reefies on the Barwon Banks and around the steps on the southern end. The three sisters has been producing kingfish and wahoo on the troll during the tide changes in particular the high tide. Plenty of bait around so fill up with livies before tackling any of the bigger predators to ensure success. Mahi mahi are really hot at the moment around the FAD's and channel markers to the north and within the Coolum to Noosa stretch mack tuna are taking anything you throw at them. Caloundra 12 mile is the spot for more mackerel and the spoil ground out from the Caloundra Bar although I would not be attempting a crossing at Caloundra in the coming days.

Noticed that over 600 fish in Lake Currimundi died becasue of lack of oxygen in the water. When are we going to stop this spot from being a still pond and join it with the natural tidal flow it should recieve? Stacks of trevally and tarwhine around Bulcock beach and throughout the Pumistone Passage. A few jacks being caught along the Kawana Island rock walls down to McKenzies bridge area along with moses perch and smaller chopper tailor. The canals have an abundance of bream at the moment and there are whiting around the weed bed at Bells creek throug hto Coochin Creek. Fishing the ebb tide produces the best results on the whiting and blood worms are the gun bait second only to squirt worms and yabbies. Mullet can be taken within the lake systems with a little bread and a llight rig with a float. This is great fishing for the kids and areas like Pelican Waters canals or Kawana Island are top spots to have a crack at them. Some interesting weather on its way in the coming days so be careful and choose your fishing day well. Have Fun!
