Some nice bream in the Maroochy!

With a stunning weekend plenty of anglers got out for a winter fish. Bream catches have started to show up a bit further up river, try fishing the rocky outcrops and structures like jetty’s and pontoons around Twin Waters, Maroochy Waters and Bli Bli Bridge. Casting small minnows and curly tail plastics like the Zman Grubz in 2.5 inch are perfect, Make sure you use the lightest jig head possible when fishing for bream. For the baits anglers; try fresh mullet strips, yabbies and chook or mullet gut to get the job done. Twin Waters has also been good for trevally, Gt’s and big eye are on the chew with most fish hitting surface lures like the Zippin Ziggy and Sugapens, fishing the high tide is providing the better results. Nice size flathead have been taking on soft plastics around Goat and Chambers Island, and the banks just up from the Jet Ski Run, with better catches on the run out tide during the day. Black Banks Cotton Tree and Picnic Point are holding nice size whiting with the bigger fish taking worms and yabbies on the last of the run in tide.

On the beaches is seeing good whiting on the chew taking worms, with the best areas north of Coolum beach on the run out tide. Mudjimba Beach seems to be the spot if chasing a good feed of dart. This stretch is holding top looking gutters at the moment which is perfect for these fish. Best baits are pipis and worms or throwing small metal slugs like the Halco Twisty 15 gram will secure a nice feed. Jew reports have quieten a little this is only due Full moon conditions. Tailor numbers are starting to improve with the best results coming from around the river mouths and off the rocks around Coolum. Slide Baiters are seeing plenty of sharks with reports of some bigger sharks at night on live baits.

Offshore has been a little quiet due to the southerly’s over the weekend, but there was plenty of action late last week. Plenty of snapper have come from those closer reefs with most fish between 50 and 60 cm, there hasn’t been a lot of run so the fish are responding well to whole baits and plastics fished through a quality burly trail. The Gneerings, Murphy’s and Currimundi have all produced some nice snapper.

[Suggested reading: snapper on soft plastics]

Caloundra wide was good for amber jack, bigger cobia pearl perch and some nice mauri cod. Those that did fish over the weekend tended to hang a little closer, good areas include out front of Mooloolaba Rocks and Alex Headland. Anchoring up out from the rocks in around the 7 to 8 metre mark and float pillies back towards the rocks will secure you squire, grass sweetlip and moses perch.
