July 23
The Gneering and Caloundra 12 mile have had plenty of Snapper caught drifting large Pilly's and squid. Caloundra Wide has most definately had the best time with big Pearl Perch and Snapper. However all the inside reefs have had there fair share of great fish too. The bite didn't really come into affect untill after the full moon on Wednesday night. The beaches have been flooded with some quality table fish. The northerly swell has pushed Tailor and even the odd squire onto the Kawana Beach stretch. There is plenty of bait and big fish spotted from the beaches and the gutters are holding some bait. Light gear will also land you some flathead, whiting, dart and big Bream. My prediction will be a good session along the beach fishing the rising tide as the larger predators come into the gutters to feed.
This beast was caught by Brett in the Kawana Waters area using live bait. The fight was big and the bite time was around daybreak. It weighed in at 5.7kg.

Caloundra Wide has had the best reports since the full moon but the Barwon Banks always fishes well. Caloundra 12 Mile North has had the best reef and snapper fishing with a few rogue Spanish.

The Garfish are in the Basin and the entrance to the Mooloolah River. They are thick and very timid. Patience is the key. High tide will also make it easier catch a few from boats and even the shoreline. Big Bream and the odd Flathead are still caught in the Mooloolah River around the boat ramps and trawlers. Trevally are still kicking around but are not in any great numbers. Offshore has had fantastic conditions and since the full moon fishing was great but did slow up towards the back end of the weekend. Caloundra 12 Mile and Caloundra Wide were reported as the best grounds over the last 5 days. The Kawana/Buddina Beaches have had an influx of Tailor and it has been the best run for a few years. We had a photo sent through of them even caught in the river. Dart and Bream are still working the gutters and there are plenty of whiting around as well.

Burley off the anchor line is what has helped many people over the last week catch their chosen species. Snapper are in good numbers and in good size and the Pearlies are in as close as 12 mile as well. There are quite a few king fish and Cobia caught around the wrecks on Jumbo Pillies and jigs. The beach is where everyone should be. The amount of fish sitting in the gutters in is far greater when there are good deep gutters. There have been some good tailor caught with bream, whiting and flathead as well. I did hear of 2 Snapper caught in the gutters as well last week which is very plausible with the strong northerly easterly swell. The Mooloolah River is flooded with Garfish at the moment and along with that the Bream are there and are better caught around dawn, dusk and through the night on tidal changes. The water clarity is crystal at the moment so dim light and deep water is where the best luck will be.
