Weekly Report 1 Nov 13

Post by Brad » Thu Oct 31, 2013 2:54 pm

It appears that the weekend ahead may offer a chance for boaties to get offshore. Of course we have been hoping now for sometime that this would happen so be ready to go just in case the wind holds off. There are reports of spotty mackerel around Bray's Rock and long tail tuna busting up bait schools. I saw birds smashing into a large bait school this morning and tuna jumping out of the water so if you can get out you will have fun. It seems that later in the morning the action starts to heat up so don't miss it, watch the birds and get in front of them and wait for you chance to cast into the school. More reports from Noosa way with pearl perch and squire still being caught around the inner reef systems like Sunshine.

Mahi mahi should be around the buoys and FAD's at the moment so pack some shiny chrome slugs around 20-30grms in you gear. Once you have had a few casts at the buoys then try letting them sink for about 10-15seconds before retrieving and if that does not pay off then it is time to either drip a bait or troll around for a while. If nothing works then visit it again on the way home and try your luck. I would recommend Saturday evening for a fish on the inshore reefs, (weather permitting), for some quality reefies. High tide will be around 8pm so set in to position just before 6pm and commence your berley trail.

Mangrove jack and whiting have been the big scores this week around the canal systems. The whiting have been attacking soldier crabs and worms and once the school finds you bait they will hang around for some time. Still good catches of trevally and small queenfish within the Pumicestone Passage for those that are happy to put in the time. Casting slugs, plastics and live baits into the channel areas will eventually reward you. Flathead are all over the passage in consistent numbers and the biggest one I have witnessed so far has been 760cm taken around the pontoon near the Caloundra Powerboat Club and it took a live herring.

So this weekend looks like a chance for boaties so make the most of it and have fun!
