Some good Trevally coming from the Maroochy!

Offshore waters have been popular over the last week with anglers fishing the late afternoon well rewarded. With afternoon offshore breezes most anglers have decided to fish the closer reefs. The Gneerings is producing snapper, cobia, cod and sweetlip with the night time showing the bigger fish. Currimundi Reef is certainly fishing better late in the afternoon and into dark with big snapper, sweetlip and jew taking floating pillies. Make sure when fishing these areas to have a good burley trail. Ready-made pellet burley or cut pilchards are perfectly suited to this type of fishing. Just remember to throw only enough to attract the fish not the sharks. Murphy’s Reef has shown pearl perch, snapper, sweetlip and moses perch with pillies and squid the favoured bait. Out wider, the Barwon Banks has been perfect for snapper, red throat and pearl perch a good tip when using floater when fishing for snapper is to use Black Magic Tough Leader as there are a few pelagics still on the prowl and this may give you the extra resistance you might need.

With some perfect winter days over the last couple of weeks families have been out in force on the river, the bream are really starting to fire with the river mouth right the way up to Bli Bli Bridge seeing good fish, Fish over the 30cm mark are plentiful and hit like a freight train. Good baits have been whitebait, mullet gut and fowl gut as well as strip baits like mullet and bonito. If you love chasing them with lures the Eco Gear ZX 35 blades are a great choice. For the flathead anglers, good numbers have been taken up and down the river with the area around Oyster Bank Rd a hotspot with the land based anglers, while Bli Bli Islands has been the spot for the boaties, good fish around the 40 to 50cm mark have been happy to take small baits like hardy heads, prawns and small pilchards, soft plastic have also been a popular choice with pinks and chartreuse colours perfect for the job. The predatory fish have been in good numbers in the river, trevally, tailor and queenies have all been beating up bait schools as they come into the river on the large tides around the full moon. Areas like the Jet Ski Run, the current line around the tip of Goat Island and of course the bridge pylons on the traffic bridge have all been hotspots. Jew fisherman have also had a good week with quite a few good fish boated from the upper reaches of the river, paddle style soft plastic and vibes have been the lures of choice!

On the beaches has been very productive with good size dart on Mudjimba beach just north of Surf Air. The run out tide and the best baits have been beach worms and pipis. Whiting are still on the chew just north of the Coolum Surf Club, with most catches taken on worms in the lower water gutters. Schools of tailor are moving up the beached with the rocks at Coolum and Pin Cushion fishing well, pilchards on a gang of 3 x 4/0 or 3/0 hooks has secured the fish with the run in tide the best fish. Jewies are a bit hard to come by on the full moon, the best time has been before moonrise. Best results have come from mullet fillets, whole squid and beach worms. Good spots include out front of Stumers Creek, Marcoola Beach to Pin Cushion and Yaroomba Rocks.
