Report 19/2/16

February 16
Morning report:
The rivers are looking beautiful after the rain. The water is clear with a slight tinge of green. Trevally are well on the chew in the canals and around the weirs. Yesterday I saw some big Bream and Whiting around the boat ramp. A little bit of burley pellets should land you some decent fish. High tide looks to have the most amount of activity.
Afternoon report:
It looks like the mackerel are back on with reports of as many as a dozen hitting the lines on one boat with 5 hauled in. As far as bait fish no real reports but Yakka's are still there. The reef fish have been turned on after the rain and the swell unsettling the bottom. Surprisingly the water is cleaner than expected and out wide is looking really good.

Odyssey Charters boated a few good mackerel and some good reef fish yesterday and hopefully there are plenty more about. With the swellup there is a good 10 sec wave period so it won't be too uncomfortable on the drift or troll. The Mooloolah river is looking very clean and the boat ramp has plenty of bream, whiting and mullet hanging around. small soft plastics like grubs and my favourite the Zman slim swimz.

Mackerel and Tuna are on the table for the pelagics on the inside reefs and as for the bottom the fishing has been producing some good sweetlip and other reef species. Burley up with some pellets as the sharks have been coming in on the fish scraps. The river is looking beautiful and there are some good Bass been caught in the upper reaches of the mooloolah and Maroochy Rivers. Labalsa Park is still producing some good bream and whiting with a few flathead caught along the sandy drop offs. Trevally and Bream are hitting the edges of the canals and main river as they school up prawns and small bait.

Morning report: There have been Spanish mackerel out at the Barwon banks and reports of boiling bait schools being chased by lots of Tuna around Currimundi reef with the odd Mackerel in there too, and our rivers have been fishing well with reports of lots of legal(25cm) Bream and a few really nice eating size Dusky flathead(I find the best eating size between 50 and 60cm).
Afternoon report: Beach fishing along Kawana beach has been terrific over the last couple of days with these northerlies making the beach easier to fish with some great Bream Whiting and Flathead being caught, in the Mooloolaba river there have been reports of some screaming runs while using live-baits (I suspect Mangrove Jacks) and there have been a few nice Mud crabs caught as well. Off-shore when people have gotten out there have been a few reports of action in close spinning slugs through surface chops of bait being attacked by packs of small longtail tuna and Mackerel.
