Anyone from around the sunny coast??

Post by mungoman_c » Sun Mar 09, 2014 1:56 pm

Gday guys, I'm moving to the sunny coast in June, I was wondering if there was anyone on here that would consider swapping their marks from around there for my ones up here, I have tons of ripper marks for all around the top end from years of fishing here. Pm if you would be interested in doing a deal, Cheers guys.

My old stomping grounds mate, Bli Bli would be a good 2.5-3 hrs from hervey bay, a lot of the highway to the north is 80kmh with loads of speed cameras, can't help you with any marks...sounds like you're looking for offshore spots? I used to fish the southern end of the barwon banks a bit for snapper kingfish and pearlies not hard to find good ground with lots of depth changes from 30-70 metres of water. Plenty of charters operating out of Mooloolaba, not hard to keep an eye on where they head and the depths they're fishing overnighters were good for finding livies we'd often get schools of slimie macks around the boat, happy days when they turend up

Ah righto, didnt realise that. My boat is a 4.9 so it will be more inshore fishing due to the good old qld wind haha, thanks for the heads up mate.

Plenty of inshore reefs that can fish ok at times for smaller reefies good schools of tuna and tailor during winter as well that average a lot bigger than the tuna here. Winter time has the best stretches of light wind as well as the best fishing. The sand flats in pumicestone passage offer really good flathead fishing on the flats with plenty going up past 80cm. Plenty of variety in species down that way, once you get your head around the crowds, the closest decent dam barra fishing is up at Monduran Dam just past Gin Gin about 4 hrs from the coast. We used to fish Borumba Dam about an hour from maroochydore a fair bit there's heaps of big toga in there as well as bass yellowbelly and silver perch (you'll need a SIPS permit for the dams but it doesn't cost much for a year)

Thats the go, I originally come from out at Dalby, we use to fish Boondooma mainly but occasionally went up to Awonga. Never got to head tomonduran but it will be happening when I get back. Im going to miss the quality of fishing up here but I am looking forward to targeting all the different species and im not going to miss the gigantic tides haha

Mouth of mool river on the south side for heaps of gar then head old women rock on dust for plenty of snapper. Behind kawana there is a great stretch of water for crabs and jacks. There is a weir behind factories that is good for small Jew on kawana way.
