Weekly Report 1 Aug 13

Post by Brad » Wed Jul 31, 2013 8:35 pm

Wow, it has been a really sad run of weather of late but that is stating the obvious. Towards the end of this week and through parts of next week there is suppose to be a chance of reasonable seas and winds so keep your fingers crossed. At the moment there are very limited reports offshore but the estuaries and dams are the only opportunities of late. Still bass around the catchments and plenty of bream within the Pumicestone Passage. Mullet and chicken strips are still a fantastic way to hook a good sized bream. Fresh yabbies and small live herring are also gun baits and can attract numerous other species at the same time. Whiting are around but best to travel down the southern end of the passage around the weed beds for best results. They can be taken around the many sand flats around the Golden Beach area but patience is the key in these areas.

There is dart and whiting in the surf beaches at the Happy Valley end of the passage and small 15g chrome slugs will attract a them on the change of the tide. I have found that the low tide is the best time to tackle them. All types of species including mulloway are within the deeper channel areas of the passage but the big bites are few and far between at the moment. Try working the rocky bottom along the strip between the lifesavers hut and the registered swimming area with as little weight as possible for some drummer and tarwhine. The drummer have been hard to get over the past week but the cooler change may bring them back on.

Chopper tailor are working around the bait schools and they can be caught on small surface poppers or floating skip baits. As soon as they break the surface toss beyond them and work the lure through them and wait for the big hit. Other options this week will include fishing around the walls in the Mooloolaba for bream, mulloway and again tailor. Early mornings and tide changes will be the best times to target fish in the area so time your trips well. Look to work the sheltered areas around the canal so that you can at least cast a line in the winds. Overall most boaties will be looking for a chance to start their motors. Have Fun!
