Report 8/11/16

November 5
Morning report: Offshore is seeing plenty of variety with the banks still posessing the best variety locally. Murpheys has had some parrot and squire caught while the blinker and the gneerings are providing some small mackerel and tuna. Heading into summer I would start to consider fishing Caloundra 9 Mile and Currimundi to target some grassies, mackerel and live bait. The rivers are holding plenty of whiting, bream and the catches of flathead are nothing shy of remarkable. I had a lazy day fishing the passage last week and manage 4 bar-tailed flatties which were released. Large duskies are speradically caught along the Labalsa Park stretch and the Boat ramp has held some good catches of trevally and monster bream. More bait fish are showing up with plenty of small clear estuary shrimp and plenty of herring. This tells me there will be a good Jack season this summer.
Afternoon report: There are a lot of small whiting around the boat ramp and Labalsa Park. The edge of the basin on low tide is a good spot for big flatties and trevally as well. Lightly weighted prawns have been the best of the bunch for bream while soft plastics will be the favoured to catch the quality.

Morning report: There are reports of mackerel around the eastern side of old woman, the gneering and the blinker with a few small kinfish as well.
There are plenty of whiting around and the bar-tailed flatties are in good numbers along the beaches, Labalsa Park and the Pumicestone Passage.
Afternoon report: Labalsa Park fished very well this weekend with a few Golden Trevally landed. Bream were the number one species caught using prawns and beach worms. Whiting and flathead were in good numbers with the boat ramp producing a few and also at the Basin. Offshore has seen tusk fish, cod and grassies on the local reefs with a few mackerel caught around Old Woman the gneering and the blinker. There were small spotties, school mackerel and small spanish reported over the wekend in these area's by yak fisho's and small boat operators. Trolling Jumbo Pilly's on small chin weights were reported as a great way to boat them. Here is a photo of one of the Golden Trevally caught at Labalsa Park by Belinda Bedggood caught using Small baby pillies.

The rivers are full of herring and little clear prawns. The Pumicestone passage is full of whiting and flathead. The Bream are on the edges of the current from main channels and flathead are lying in the troughs just off the main currents. Unweighted or lightly weighted live baits and prawns are doing the damage with soft plastics the number one taker for flathead. The Mooloolah River is fishing well around the boat ramps as more bream are becoming hungry on the top of the tides. There are plenty of small whiting around and a few big dusky flathead around Labalsa Park and the upper reaches. As this weather heats up there will be some school mackerel out the river mouth off the rocks along with big bream and grunter. This photo was sent in by Chris. He caught his PB Dart off Kawana Beach around 5 pm yesterday just before the sunset. It weighed in at 724g and gave him quite a bit of trouble on light line. Fresh beach worms that were caught about 20 mins prior did the damage. He also caught a few more dart that were smaller. Patience was a key factor though and working through the stingrays was a task in itself. He managed 6 stingrays before the dart came on the bite. This is showing the patience always pays off in some way.

The Waterways are continuing to warm rapidly with all this warm weather and it would appear that summer is well and truely here so there have been a few rumours getting around of some nice Mangrove Jack and the odd Sunshine Coast Barramundi with both speices being taken on large live baits and soft vibes in Orange or red, The Flathead are still around if know how to fish the drop-offs with Soft plastics,it is also exciting thet the full moon is on monday and the high tide is going to be in the early evening so thinking fishing for jacks accross the high tide just on dark with a couple of Tasty livies swimming around sounds pretty good to me.
