Weekly Report 29 Aug 13

What a run of beautiful weather we have enjoyed over the past week with northerlies back on, the heat and warmer waters will not be far away. Plenty of whales still heading south and we witnessed a large pod of six playing on Tuesday off Noosa North Shore. Plenty of small dart and bream in the surf at the moment and the trick is to get your line tight very quickly so that you feel the bites. Pippies and mullet, (or any fish fillets) are the best baits at the moment. Whiting are around the shallows at Kings Beach and are best targeted in the early mornings or right on dusk. There are still chopper tailor up to the 40cm mark within the passage and early mornings are the best time to target them.

The estuaries within the Pumicestone Passage is starting to give up a few smaller trevally and they are around the back edges of the Pelican Waters canal areas feeding on small bait schools. They can take a bit of finding some mornings but persistence will pay off. Queenies are another target around the same area and there is always a chance of hooking on to a hard fighting queenie. Whiting are worth a shot right on dawn with a popper or a skip bait. I enjoyed a good session close to the Navy Cadets shed on Wednesday morning and although most were well undersize it was a load of fun. Flathead are showing their aggression with some quality fish and have been taken off the Boardwalk in the wee hours of the morning.

Offshore there have been some large catches of sweetlip and smaller squire and the pearl perch are still on at Wide Caloundra. The Inner Gneerings has hussar, red throat emperor and sweeties around it. Brays Rock still has the odd snapper hanging around and Currimundi Reef is worth a visit for quality bream and squire. The northerly winds have made things a little quiet of late but the simple answer to that is to head deep. Target the pelagics like kingfish, cobia and amberjack for some serious arm stretching action.

be The week ahead is looking poor for offshore action with strong winds and big seas predicted through next week. The estuaries will be the place to target in the coming days and fishing known areas like the passage and Maroochy River will be the go. Start looking for mangrove jack around the bridges pylons and pontoons and the known mangrove areas as they are nailing lures and poddy mullet at the moment. Have Fun!
