Report 4/5/16

Post by Nicole Penfold » Fri May 13, 2016 4:25 pm

April 30
Morning report: There have been a few Mahi Mahi caught when the weather was better. Offshore was really firing a fortnight ago so now the weather is coming good for us lets hope it continues. The estuaries have been fishing well while offshore has been hit with the bad weather. There have been some beautiful whiting caught down at the Pumicestone Passage and Picnic Point in the Maroochy River. The Mooloolah River has the best variety happening with some nice flathead, bream and Trevally caught mostly out of the canals. Now the rain has come the baitfish will be feeding and in turn the larger predetors too. The main river should start to fire now that some bait has hopefully been washed out from the canals.
Afternoon report: Offshore there have been a few boats heading out but with the current predictions of wind, rain and swell most would have stayed home. The guys who did head out met a very comfortable morning with reports of plenty variety on the bottom with Tuna in close around the Gneerings with Mackerel still caught out a little wider.

The most notable fish for offshore has been Pearl Perch and Squire. A little bit of burley will always help a feeding frenzy on the bottom. The Mackerel are around still with plenty of Tuna. There is a seafood basket of fish ready to be caught out there as we are in the changing of the seasons.

There were a few nice catch and release flathead around the boat ramp yesterday and today with some whiting and plenty of bream. Pike have started to come out with the cooler waters starting to attract them into a bite. Offshore the close in reefs have seen some big spotty mackerel and Spanish as well. There are still schools of busting tuna and the squire have moved in too. There is a lot of variety on offer so don't limit to one style and one bait. Use lures and 2-3 types of baits.

This is a fantastic time to fish the rivers and offshore as we have had some rainfall and the system is being replenished with plenty of food. The rivers and estuaries are churning out quite a few flathead at the moment with whiting around also this leads to some great fun for the family and the avid angler. The Trevally are banging up bait around the trawlers and the canals around Mooloolabah and a few have also been landed around Labalsa Park. Offshore has seen a mixed bag with a few amberjack caught today with snapper, pearl perch, Spanish and spotted Mackerel. A bit of burley is what is helping the feeding frenzy on the bottom as the big snapper aren’t quite in and active yet it will entice the ones that are here to get on the bite.
Here we have Connor with a nice Diamond Trevally caught on a soft plastic.

As the conditions continue to improve the reports continue to grow in number, with lots of Mackerel being caught in close with the smaller Grey/school and Spotties in large numbers while the big Spainish are certainly around as well. Lots of quality bream have been caught around the area and i saw a photo of a truly solid Trevally that was caught recently around the Trawlers at Mooloolaba.
