Weekly Report 31 May 14

Post by Brad » Sat May 31, 2014 8:03 pm

What great conditions ahead over the next few days on the Sunshine Coast. Low seas and winds means plenty of snapper in the boat and they are definitely on the chew. Brays Rock and Currimundi Reef have been a top spot to fish for them and they are close in and Currimundi remains sheltered during the southerly blows because of Caloundra Headland. Murphy's Reef and the Caloundra 12 mile reef has also really turned on the snapper along with an odd cobia or two. Sweetlip and red throat emperor are being taken on all of the reefs but are much more prolific in the area of the Gneerings Shoal and Outer Gneerings areas. Some of the best entertainment at the moment is fishing for squid and let me tell you there are bucket loads of them out there. Old fishing Women's Island and the Gneerings are the better areas for catching them and a simple squid jig rig is all you will need. There is no better bait than a fresh piece of squid to tempt a hungry snapper.

Mulloway are being caught in the estuaries and fishing the lower tide with live bait will surely get you into them. Sometimes a trip may only yield on fish but its better than none let me tell you. Look for deep drop-offs and eddies that flow over or around deeper water as they are a high ambush predator and very aggressive on live baits. Floating a strip of fish down the current trail is another way to tempt them and a simple snell rig is fine. Pike or chopper tailor make great baits for them. Flathead have also been on the chew around the canals and in parts of the Pumicestone Passage. Most fish are around the 40-55cm mark so watch the regulations. Soft plastics, blades and whitebait have proven the best to use. There are bream around and the bigger sea bream are coming in now with the sea mullet so you can look forward to a good week of fishing ahead and in fact throughout winter. Have Fun!
