Weekly Report 10 Oct 13

Post by Brad » Tue Oct 08, 2013 7:27 pm

The Boardwalk in Caloundra has been quiet compared to this time last year but there are still a few reasonable flathead and bream around. Along the beach up to Happy Valley there are whiting and bream around the rocky outcrops and small dart within the surf waves. Flathead are good to target around the same area during the ebb tide particularly when there is a big run. The deeper channel areas around the Caloundra Bar has trevally and flathead through the day but the early mornings seem to be the best time to target them and if there is a corresponding tide, all the better.

Queenfish are being caught on small live pike in the channel areas and normally the bi catch can be a flathead or tailor. Mullet strips are still great for the pelagics within the Pumicestone Passage and chicken gut is accounting for some quality bream. The bigger summer whiting are around the sand flats and they can be sought further south down around the Coochin Creek areas. Small yabbies and bloodworms have been accounting for the better quality fish. Mangrove jack are very active at the moment and the better fishing Is to be had around the Maroochy River and the Twin Water canal areas. Believe me it is worth a trip up there. You can still target them around the canals at Pelican Waters and Kawana Island. McKenzie's bridge has been very quiet of late with only a few moses perch and small bream being taken.

Offshore has been a mixed bag but some big snapper and pearl perch have been caught around Wide Caloundra. The northern end of the Barwon Banks has held some fantastic pelagic action with kingfish and amberjack still around in good numbers. Sunshine Reef has held coral trout, sweetlip and red throat emperor and is the place to be when the southerlies are blowing. Hopefully the beach's and offshore opportunities will increase in the coming days giving us the chance to score big. Latest information says that there are now spotty mackerel being taken around the Gneering Shoals and out front of Point Cartwright. Fish are being taken on slow trolled pilchards or lures. They are not thick but they are there. Have Fun!
