Weekly Report 11 Feb 13

Post by Brad » Mon Feb 11, 2013 7:17 pm

The dirty water line has withdrawn incredibly after last week it was out near the three sisters in the middle of the Barwon Banks nearly 37km out but now it is around 15km out to clear water. There are plenty of pelagics like wahoo and quality marlin out at the Banks and around the wide grounds. A good result for the offshore fishermen at the Kawana club recently with an average of nearly two per boat being taken over the weekend of fishing in conditions that could be described as nothing but ordinary. The reefies will start again with gusto with the next full moon phase and the water should be just about clear by then, fingers crossed. The good news is the bait schools are back and very close to the surface and off course there are big predators feeding with a vengence. So reef fishing and pelagics are on the cards for the coming days.

The estuaries have some monsters lurking around the dirty waters and we have enjoyed some cracker mulloway still smashing live mullet. Trevally are taking nearly everything thrown at them and one of the hotspots is the weir around Twin Waters. Small surface poppers and Damiki shallow divers are taking bream, whiting and chopper tailor within the Pumistone Passage. On the low tide there are dart in the surf side around Happy Valley and some quality whiting along the northern beaches of Bribie Island. Flathead can be caught in the same areas but you are better working the main channel through to Gemini Towers with the tide run.

Military Jetty is still producing some bream and happy moments and of course stingrays. Work the areas around the Powerboat Pontoon for whiting and smaller bream with the chance of an occassional flatty. The Maroochy River has a mixed box but it seems that the bream are absolutely dominating at the moment. Mangrove jack can be found near the rock walls at Kawana Island and the mangoves around McKenzies bridge. The tide changes are the better times to fish and the inbetween times can be very slow. Crab pots are a must for a fresh feed at the moment so take them along with you. La Balsa park has plenty of bream and whiting so get a BBQ organised and spend some time on one of the prettiest strips around.

A good week ahead for fishermen so get out the boots, kayak, boat or surf rod and get into it. Have Fun!
