Weekly Report 16 Oct 13

Post by Brad » Wed Oct 16, 2013 1:46 pm

I am still looking for a reliable reporter to cover the Caloundra & Mooloolaba areas on a fortnightly basis. If you have an interest in starting out in reporting then please drop me an email. fishingcaloundra@yahoo.com.au

This week the estuaries have been the only main topic of conversation but they are limited at the moment. The news is not all bad as towards the end of this week the large tidal changes leading up to the full moon will bring on the trevally and the queenfish around the Pumicestone Passage. A couple of queenfish have again been taken around Military Jetty and throughout the channel areas of the passage. Some monster trevally around the 6kg mark have been caught around the Caloundra Bar entrance on live pike and pike are the best bait to attract queenies. So this weekend on the change of the tides get some live bait around the pontoons or jetties and put them on a hook for your chance to tackle a big fish.

There are flathead and bream around the 800grm mark within the canals and the shallow water drop-offs in Golden Beach. Plenty of smaller bream to catch from the pontoons at the Powerboat Club and within the deeper waters of the canals. Whiting are plentiful around the wed areas of Bells Creek and the patch around the yabbie grounds. Target the waters along the run of the Esplanade of Golden Beach particularly along the stretch around to Bells Creek boat ramp. The pontoon at Gemini Towers is one of the best spots to take the kids to target bream and all you will need is some bread rolled up to cover your hook.

Offshore is still experiencing a strong northerly blow that has limited opportunities but late afternoon or early mornings before the wind gets up may get you a few fish. Once the blow starts it really is all over. This pattern looks like it will continue for another week but that does not mean an end to fishing. As mentioned earlier you should target the estuaries or the local dams for a chance to get amongst them. Have Fun!
