Weekly Report 23 May 14

Post by Brad » Fri May 23, 2014 1:06 pm

A cracker of a weekend coming up according to the current weather predictions but an even better week following for fishing offshore. This should help you all get out and into the snapper. There are still tuna schools around and people are talking up the opportunity of a mackerel but I will hold on that as the water is now to cold for them to be in any numbers. The deeper waters around Wide Caloundra and the Barwon Banks would be my pick with the upcoming weather and target spots between the 60m up to 90m marks. Closer reefs will be great in the early hours of the morning and on the evening tide changes. Pilchards and fresh squid are the gun baits at the moment so take the time to use your squid jigs while you are around the reefs.

Sunshine Reef will be worth a visit over the coming days for all sorts of reef species including sweetlip, red throat and the occasional pearl perch. Parrot are still available out on Murphy's and the Gneerings Shoal but the rougher patches out on the Hards are on of the best spots to get them. Old Women's Island may be a spot to try for the squid on the next moon phase and if that is not successful there are still mulloway being caught in the mouth of the Maroochy River and the channel of the Mooloolaba harbour.

The estuaries are still a little quiet but of late there have been some cracker flathead caught around the canals in Mooloolaba and Kawana. The smaller bream are plentiful in the same areas and a simple rig with a bit of bread on it will get you some fun. The Pumicestone Passage has chopper tailor and bream around the Blue Hole and within the Pelican Waters bridge area. There are still smaller herring schools around the pontoons and jetties which stretch along The Esplanade in Golden Beach. Work the channel area and the deeper holes along the Boardwalk for mulloway at night and use large king prawn baits uncooked of course unless you have an handy bloodworms tucked up your sleeve.

The making tide is the time for the bigger fish in the area and if that corresponds with a tide change around 1am in the morning then your chances go up considerably. Being very quiet is very important when fishing for mulloway so avoid bumping the boat sides or bottom and plunging the anchor into the water. Should be a terrific week ahead with plenty of opportunities to fish and great weather. Don't forget to send in your pics and I will put them forward for the magazine. Have Fun!
