Weekly Report 28 Feb 14

Post by Brad » Fri Feb 28, 2014 9:26 am

Moderate South Easterlies are about over the next few days which will mean early trips out to the reefs or fish around the protected areas. Places like Coolum, Old Women's Island, Sunshine Reef and Point Cartwright will still be ok for a troll at mackerel and some reef species. The mackerel are around along with schools of baitfish and tuna so make sure you have a chrome slug attached to a line somewhere on the boat. Of course if you have a bigger vessel then you will be able to head out to the Barwon Banks where the fishing is just hot. Plenty of big pelagics ready to rip your arms off and some healthy snapper, pearl perch and tuskfish will fill the esky.

Inshore the rock wall off Mooloolaba has bream and trevally in numbers with an occasional flathead being caught. Blades are fantastic to use in this area and have a high rate of success for those that can use them properly. Small 1 and 2" soft plastics are working well in the canals with an extremely light jig head (no heavier than 1/16). Any small curly tail grubs in purple or red are the ticket in the waters of the canals and the Pumicestone Passage at the moment. The Mooloolah River has crabs still running but a lot of jennies are amongst them so take care. There are good catches of small trevally and bream around the cod hole and plenty of bigger trevally in the canals at Twin Waters. Chambers Island and the Pumicestone Passage both have whiting and bream with the top of the turning ebb tide being the best time to target them.

Military Jetty has happy moments an odd mangrove jack and some flathead along with the never ending supply of stingrays that are about at the moment. Chopper tailor are working around the Pelican Waters bridge but it is hit and miss, making it a lucky chance to catch them smashing the bait schools. Should be a good week ahead with plenty of options in the southerlies so get out and have some fun!
