Weekly Report 20 Feb 14

Post by Brad » Thu Feb 20, 2014 10:57 am

Again with the weather and windy conditions! It seems that once the southerly change comes through on Friday afternoon or evening there will be very little chance of getting offshore for a fish for a few days. Right now getting out early in the morning before the wind takes hold is the best time to target reef species and tuna schools. There have been emperor and tuskfish around the Gneerings and the Caloundra 12 mile lately with some undersized pearl perch taking baits. Still reports of plenty of sweep around all the outer reef areas which can be annoying. Mackerel are hunting on the shallow ledge of the Gneering Shoals so it is worth either floating a bait out or having a troll around before the wind sets in. The spoil grounds at Caloundra have mackerel and cobia travelling along the shipping channel markers.

The estuaries are quiet but are still giving up the odd fish here and there. Trevally, flathead and whiting are being caught in the early hours of the morning or into the evenings if you can find a sheltered spot. A nice 82cm flathead was caught on Military Jetty on Wednesday morning which is great to see. Some smaller jack have been caught in the canal areas and in the mangroves near Coochin Creek. Should be a slow week ahead but there is a chance to get out on Friday before the big winds come on again. Have Fun!
