Weekly Report 19 Sep 13

Post by Brad » Thu Sep 19, 2013 7:11 pm

School Holidays are here and that means heaps of visitors are coming and looking to get amongst the fish. The weather should hold for a few days later next week for boaties but that can change in an instant around here at the moment. If the weather is good head out to Wide Caloundra, the Barwon Banks and other deeper water areas because that's where the quality fish are hiding at the moment. Large pearl perch at the southern end of the Banks around the steps area along with snapper to 6kg. Plenty of hussar and red throat emperor on the bite around in the early mornings in particular around the tidal changes. The inner reefs like Murphy's and the Gneerings Shoal are worth a shot around dusk on the high tide if possible.

If you are into a trip up to Sunshine Reef it will certainly be worth it because you could hook up to any number of species around this spot. A little further north adjacent to the Noosa North Shore beach there have been some cracker tuna taken on trolled hard bodied lures and skirts. The area is normally one of the best spots to target tuna and other pelagic species but that can be a few months away yet. The wrecks and other areas up around Coolum are producing fish so take your time and look around. There are still some amazing numbers of sailfish out wide so gear up. I have posted some of the generic northern marks to help holiday makers.

1. Misery Reef S26°22.626' E153°09.260'
2. Massouds Reef S26°20.220' E153°09.800'
3. Chardons Reef S26°24.800' E153°09.260' These are up around Coolum Noosa area
4. Sunshine Reef S26°25.100' E153°09.150'
5. Jew Shoal S26°21.640' E153°06.890'
6. Halls Reef S26°20.250' E153°05.110'
7. North Reef S26 16.550 E153 11.350

The estuaries have been a little quiet of late but there has still been plenty of bream about the jetties, canals and pontoons right around the place. The canal areas have big schools of hungry bream and a piece of bread will be all you should need to get a few. Of course there are better baits but when they are plentiful anything seems to get them smashing baits. Still a few chopper tailor around in the mornings and if you like using smaller poppers then you may get one or a whiting. Military Jetty and the channel area at Pelican Waters bridge is a good bet for shore based anglers on the tide changes. The Boardwalk will be a little packed I would presume so get a spot early and be courteous to others.

The area along Bulcock Beach is giving up whiting and smaller dart as it joins the surf break up around Happy Valley. Remember there are some spots that you can not fish in so be aware of them and the signs that keep us informed. The northern tip of Bribie Island Is a top spot to chase whiting and when you look across from the foreshore at Happy Valley you will automatically see the hole I am talking about. Avoid keeping any fish out of Currimundi Lake at the moment. The beaches have small dart, bream, whiting and some shovel nose rays in particular around Currimundi Beach. Overall there is a big chance of getting a feed so Have Fun and please show others patience and respect.
