Weekly Report 17 Apr 14

Post by Brad » Thu Apr 17, 2014 8:02 am

The gods are smiling on us for the Easter long Weekend and that in its self is a miracle I think. Normally we have wet windy weather but a whole week of low winds and small swell is excellent. This may well be the last opportunity to get some mackerel in the boat because the last of the warm weather is about to hit in the early part of the week. Tuna schools are still around the inner reef areas outside of Mooloolaba and Caloundra and where there are tuna there is bait and mackerel. Murphy's Reef is going to be busy this long weekend because the early season run of reefies can be caught around the area while anchored. Snapper, cod, moses perch are all amongst the species you will encounter.

The Caloundra 7 & 12 mile reefs are also worth targeting for mackerel and tuna throughout the day and work them in the early mornings and into the night for reefies. The Inner Gneerings will also be the pick of the spots throughout the week and for those that want to head further north out from Mooloolaba the area around Coolum and Sunshine Reef will be excellent opportunities for a mixed bag. Wider reefs like the Barwon Banks and Wide Caloundra are reachable in the good weather about to befall us.

The estuaries will be busy but early mornings around Military Jetty and the Pelican Waters canals will be good for the last of the remaining trevally and mangrove jack along with chopper tailor and other species like bream and whiting. Work the sandbanks for whiting and flathead that are lying in ambush with strips of fish on a long shank or two hook rig. See the local boys at Caloundra Fishing World for what is biting in the area. Bream are still around the Boardwalk with flathead and whiting up around Happy Valley. Mooloolaba Rock Wall is one of the top spots to be this weekend to get into mulloway and bream so if you can spend an evening or morning up there.

The beaches are firing with dart, bream, whiting and tailor all being caught. From Moffat Beach through to Coolum there are holes and small gutters mixed up giving you a good chance of a feed. Low tide is one of the best times to fish the beach or try to find a hole to work in the evenings. So the Easter Break is going to be a cracker and I look forward to seeing some pictures from you. fishingcaloundra@yahoo.com.au Have Fun and catch Heaps!
