Weekly Report 13 Feb 14

Post by Brad » Thu Feb 13, 2014 7:10 pm

Enjoyed some could catches of Spanish mackerel recently and noticed that there are hundreds of sweep around Wide Caloundra on the reefs. I have not seen sweep around these areas for over 8 years so it was a big surprise to notice all the reefies did not have a chance at the bait because the sweep are so quick. Lets hope they go away as quick as they have come on. Still plenty of tuna around Sunshine Reef and Coolum. With the weather changing a trip up north would be a top idea to fish around Sunshine Reef and the wrecks around Noosa. The Inner Gneerings had plenty of spaniards around on the weekend and most boats got a feed.

The weekend brings with it the full moon so catching a few squid should be on the agenda around the shallow areas of Old Women's Island and the Gneerings Shoal. To top of some night time bait gathering remember to drop a livie over the side just in case a few predators are also having a chew. Reef species like squire, parrot, mowong, hussar and pearl perch will be around. We will be out around the 60m mark this week chasing bigger fish and getting into the pelagics.

The estuaries are slow but still a few trevally and bream around the canals and the many pontoons. Smaller mangrove jack are being caught around McKenzies bridge along with the ever reliable moses perch and bream. Bread is a top berley for bream so take a couple of slices downs and add a small amount of water, just enough to get it soggy and slowly release it into the water to keep the fish interested. Yabbies are still the gun bait for whiting otherwise you may be used to working surface poppers or skippers to get a feed. Get into it while the weather permits. Have Fun!

LOOKING FOR SOME PICTURES OF MACKEREL OR OTHER OFFSHORE/ESTUARY SPECIES FOR THE MAGAZINE. IF YOU HAVE A PICTURE PLEASE SEND IT TO ME WITH DETAILS.
