Weekly Report 24 Apr 14

Post by Brad » Thu Apr 24, 2014 8:35 pm

Plenty of action offshore with a few schools of mackerel chasing the skip jacks around the reefs. We got on to them outside Moffat Headland today and used our small tuna as bait to pick up a stack of tuskfish, sweetlip, red throat emperor and a nice coronation trout. Plenty of smaller squire around the reefs and with afternoon high tides and right on dusk it is an ideal long weekend to be fishing into the evening. The mackerel are not coming up until the midday sun is up and that is partly due to the cooler water temperatures at the moment. You will have to work hard for the fish but there is a feed out there if you know what you are doing.

We went from the Gneering Shoals then across to Currimundi in search of mackerel and as mentioned we found them smashing bait schools outside of Moffat beach, the trouble was they spooked really easy. This weekend look for the known pinnacles and good reef spots, find the bait balls and work them. Without bait schools the areas are like a desert and you will struggle to get into them. Further north around Sunshine Reef there are reefies to be taken including good sized snapper and parrot. There were some tuna schools in the later part of the afternoon which provided good entertainment.

The estuaries are full of bream but getting them to take a bait is sometimes a pain. Fresh bait like yabbies or live prawns will always give you the upper hand. Look around the pontoons and bridges during the tide changes for best results. There are chopper tailor schools that are taking poppers worked slowly across the surface in the morning. Its always a good thing to be ready with one rod set up with a popper. Pelican Waters pontoons have bream, the occasional trevally and school mulloway working the area. Trying to find them can be an issue sometimes but remember the bridge is a good spot to fish in the evening for mulloway.

A big Anzac long weekend coming up so I hope you get the chance to spend sometime on the water with your family and friends. Don't end up like the bloke whose boat was washed up on Point Cartwright last week. Sensible boating is safe boating. Have Fun!
