Report 16/8/16

August 13
Morning report: There are plenty of bait around the shark buoys with a lot of Garfish still floating around inside them too. The Tailor seem to still be hanging around near the top end of Buddina Beach hugging the rocks of Pt Cartwright in the darkest light with whole large pillies on a set of 5/0 gangs. The Mooloolah River has a lot of small trevally and big Bream. The bream have been large enough to notibly take line on a 12lb set up. Flathead and whiting have been caught in large numbers in the Maroochy and Pumicestone Passage.
Afternoon report: The night time fish offshore and onshore has had better luck than the daytime. The beaches are still offering some good flathead and tailor. The rivers have had an increase of large bream, especially as the high tide moves closer to nightfall.

The river must be packed with fish, if the dolphins playing on the edge of the Mooloolaba Pontoon is any indication. They seem to be herding up some garfish. There were a few reports of Bream caught around Labalsa Park with most caught on prawns and small pillies. A little bit of burley pellets increased the chance of a good catch. Flathead have also been caught along the beaches and the sand flats within the Maroochy, Mooloolah and the Pumicestone Passage with some big whiting caught at the mouth of Coochin Creek.

The river systems have yielded some cracking catches over the last few days. The Mooloolah River provided some big Bream around Labalsa Park and along the Mooloolaba side of the rock wall. Tailor were caught sporadically off the river mouth. Garfish were plentiful and the odd big flathead and whiting were landed. The Pumicestone Passage had reports of big Flathead and whiting with a few trevally caught and some monster Bream out of Coochin Creek. The Maroochy River had all of the above but there were some reports of Jew caught on Live Bait and soft plastics. Offshore saw a tough session on the shallow reefs and had some good catches in the deeper waters of the Banks, Caloundra Wide and 12 Mile. Snapper, Pearl Perch, Trag Jew, Cobia and the odd AJ were earmarked as the top dogs on boats that headed out. On Saturday the early morning bite didn't start until around 10am for the snapper. That was around the tide change.

The rivers are holding plenty of bait and the early morning showers will hopefully trigger the larger predators to get on the bite. They have a great number of large Bream and Flathead. Golden Trevally are consistently caught at Labalsa Park, while the prized catch of a nice Jew fish have been caught around the Cod Hole on live baits and soft plastics. Pumicestone Passage is a haven for whiting, bream and flathead with a few Jew caught near Military Jetty at night. We have the full moon approaching and the serious anglers will be choosing to fish around the full moon on tidal change. I prefer the high tide change into the night during winter.
