Great Beach Fishing as Cooler Weather Approaches!

For the offshore anglers, reef fish have been very popular targets of late. With good snapper starting to show up as well as trout, spangled emperor and nice sweetlip all on the menu. One particular reef that has been fishing extremely well lately has been the Gneerings. With depths ranging from around 10m – 15m, it’s the perfect place to target a few nice reefies. When fishing this area, try using soft plastic lures. Fished nice and close to the bottom, plastics tend to draw the bigger fish from the schools. Another thing to remember when chasing reef fish on soft plastics it all about the presentation, try and use the lightest weight jig head possibly for the run. Longtail and mac tuna have been in great numbers in-close over the past couple of weeks with good schools showing up around Old Woman Island. Slugs in smaller sizes have been the way to go as the tuna are feeding on very small baitfish. The Sea Rocks from River2sea have been a favorite with the lighter colors working best.
The beach has also been fishing well with the gutters along Maroochy North Shore starting to produce some good numbers of tailor, dart, tarwhine and winter bream on the incoming tide. Pilchards, worms and fresh mullet have all been working well. Another great way to improve your catches on the beach is adding various attractors to your rigs, such as glow beads and flasher rigs. This last week has been the optimum time with the evening tide and minimal moon light. Another great tip is to keep as much light as possible off the water.
In the river the River Mouth has been holding nice size sea bream, trevally and tarwhine with a variety of baits working, the standout being half pilchards. Whiting are in good numbers around Chambers Island Small poppers or surface walkers have been claiming some nice elbow slappers. Trevally and queenies are coming back onto the bite inside Twin Waters with the fish responding well to live baits and soft plastics. Keitech Easy Shiners in both the 3” and 4” sizes have been working well. As the morning tide gets a little bigger later in the week number will defiantly improve. Upriver the stretch from Coolum Creek to Dunethin Rock has been fishing well for school size jew, look for those deeper sections of the river, slow hopped Fish Candy and Transam vibes have been claiming their fair share.
