Report 4/10/16

October 1
Morning report: There are plenty of bream, whiting and flathead in the rivers lately with plenty some elbow slapping whiting hanging in the upper reaches of the Mooloolah and Maroochy Rivers. Labalsa Park have had a few good flathead lurking around and the Pt Cartwright boat ramp has had some cracking bream taken recently. The Pumicestone Passage has been very busy with the intake of some big whiting and flathead with the odd big golden trevally.
Offshore has had a good run with Pearl Perch in the deeper water. The Banks and Caloundra wide have worked well around the 60-100m area's with AJ's, Snapper and Pearlies. There are more Cod being pulled up in the shallower area's of Murpheys and 12 Mile with sweetlip the main catches on The Gneerings.
Afternoon report: The weather for offshore fishing has still been great. There are a few cracking Snapper caught over the school holidays with Pearl Perch in good numbers. Small Jigs have worked a treat as well as Pilly's and Slimies. Tusk Fish have been in good numbers also and some more kingfish were caught in on the closer reefs. The bait fish seemed to have moved off the buoys at Pt Cartwright today and there has been reports of school mackerel and kingfish hanging around there too. The water is crystal clear and with the sun some chrome spinning lures should work a treat around the bait balls if you find them. The rivers and estuaries are still kicking goals with the likes of big Flatties and Whiting in the canals and upper reaches. The Basin has had plenty of whiting with a few big ones and the boat ramp has been plagued with small bream. Labalsa Park is having great success with variety.
Photos: The Mooloolah River has tossed up a few cracking fish for Jack and Lilly Yule on a variety of techniques with hard bodies, soft plastics and baits.

The bait balls offshore were a little difficult to find yesterday but when they are found they are big and thick. There have been some Kingfish hanging around the edges so if you are chasing some use livies or soft plastics. A 4-5" paddle tail would work a treat. The water is clear so fluorocarbon and lighter than usual leader will maximise your catch rate. In the rivers last nights photo says it all. There is an abundance of table species. The water is clear in the rivers also and light leader are the giving the best opportunity also. Bream are quite thick around structure and prawns are working a treat.

The swell is still non existent on the closer reef marks. The water is very clear and if you weren't fishing in deeper water it was a stuggle to get the quality and quantity. Todays cloud cover will aid from the rivers to the sea while fishing. The darker light seems allow fish the confidence to come to the shallows and feed.
The rivers have been fantastic these holidays with plenty of bream, whiting and flathead. White bait and small pilchards have performed really well for flathead golden trevally while bream have been destroying all baits.

Small amounts of burley have worked to increase the bite in the rivers and offshore with fish frames attracting the sharks it seems burley pellets are working a treat offshore. Here we have Ben Osborn with a few cracking fish at the Labalsa Park boat ramp. These are terrific size and are quite a prized catch for this area especially land based.
