Report 27/1/16

January 23
Morning report:
The mackerel fishing has been red hot with social media plugging away with plenty of photo's as they are the most talked about species for the summer. Billfish and Mahi Mahi are gathering up in numbers also over the last 2 weeks and have been rumored to be as close as around the outter Gneering and blinker.
The beach will be a little more difficult to fish this weekend without a beach rod due to the big swell. Sticking to the rivers would be my pick with a bag of prawns and having a few snags on the bbq. Labalsa Park offers great green pastures and plenty of fishing varieties to entertain most.
Afternoon report:
the fishing along the river is great. With some Queenfish, Trevally and squid landed at Labalsa Park today it looks like there will be plenty to do tomorrow for the keen anglers. Offshore will still have the swell but it is predicted to have a 14 second swell period. It is still only for the experienced as the wind is set to pick up in the afternoon. A nice early troll around for some Mackerel may be in Order over the next few days.

The fish are on the bite but with current conditions this is not for the inexperienced. Tomorrow will be a better day although the swell is set to be around but decreasing from today. Fishing the high tides will be more comfortable out at the reefs and Mackerel have been coming on the bite around than. The middle and outer Gneering have produced some mackerel with the Blinker holding onto quite a bit of bait. The rivers have had a good range of species caught yesterday with golden trevally, queen fish, bream, whiting and flathead. Best baits have been prawns and pipi's. For the larger species small baby pilchards used with thin strips of squid have been the best.

The estuaries and canals have had some great fish landed with plenty of Bream and Mangrove Jack in the upper reaches with some beautiful whiting around Labalsa park. Offshore has seen some big Spanish around the Blinker and outter Gneerings before the big swell surge so if you are wanting to head offshore but are unsure because of the conditionsmy suggestion would be to fish around the Gneerings as there were some decent reef fish caught as well.
The Beaches will be worth an explore to see what the surges have done and use big strip baits like your Bonito and Mullet to see if you can snag a big Jew.

If you're not chasing the Mackerel offshore than I would suggest the rivers and canals. There have been some nice flathead, trevally, mangrove jack and large whiting caught up and down the sunshine coast. Labalsa Park has seen some nice flathead and beautiful Golden Trevally over the last week. Whiting and bream are always present but the size of them has been a little larger than the usual. This may be because of the dim light and cloud cover. Best baits for the estuaries have been pippi's, baby pilchards, whitebait, prawns and mullet fillets. Fishing the change of tides has worked well and what works for me is the run out tide.

Morning report:
The rivers are where its at this week untill we can get some clear weather happening. There are plenty of trevally in the canals around Mooloolaba and Pt Cartwright. Labalsa Park has offered some of the best variety of species caught for some time. Golden Trevally have been caught with some good regularity. There were some good reports of whiting congregating near the basin with the assistance of some berley pellets.
Afternoon report:
Reports of some great fishing have been coming in from all over the place after the Australia day public holiday with what can only be explained as huge crowds of people getting outside and indulging in the great Aussie past-time of fishing, reports tell me of good numbers of whiting and Flathead being taken in the lower reaches of the Mooloolaba and Maroochydore river systems as well as some big bream and the Occational Mangrove Jack. Off-shore reports of some terrific Spanish Mackerel on hard body lures and one report of a huge Mangrove Jack(3-4kg) taken while Bottom fishing in the same area.
