The Maroochy River has had the tailor are on the chew just inside the mouth of the river with most fish taking lures. The trick is to look for any little snags or cover on the run in tide and throw bright coloured soft plastics. Nice flatties in the lower reaches with the soft plastics proving the best results. Best areas have been around Goat and Channel Island on the last of the run in tide with silver glitter and pinks the preferred colour patterns. Still a few quality whiting around Chambers Island and Picnic Point with the bigger whiting taking worms, live yabbies and soldier crabs. When using soldier crabs make sure to place a couple of them up the shank and over the eye of the hook, allowing for that extra scent. Lure fisherman have seen bream on the increase with throwing small grub plastics at the pontoons and structures along the Jet Ski run and Duporth Ave channel. The dog beach is certainly the spot for Trevally and queenfish with most catches received on surface lures and metal slugs. The recent rain will see a few catches of mud crabs thru out the system. Try to straddle your pots a different depths to increase your chances. Few reports of some winter jacks lurking around with most catches coming from the motorway bridge.

Offshore fisherman were well rewarded with those good winter days over the weekend allowing access to all areas. The close in reefs that responded well included the Gneerings, Caloundra 12 Mile, Currimundi and Murphy’s Reef giving fisherman catches of mixed reef such as maori cod, grass sweetlip, snapper, parrot and pearl perch. Try quality baits like pillies, and local squid to ensure better catches. Long tails have slowed up but keep a good eye for birds working in the area from Mooloolaba to Coolum, and keep your lures small and shaped like small bait fish to improve your catches. Out wide on the Barwon Banks is where quality snapper, maori cod, and pearl perch have been taken. Try the middle of the banks in the 60m mark for the pearlies and the shallower water for the other species. All species responded well to local squid, pillies, live baits and butterflied slimey’s. Still a few coral trout taking live yakka’s with areas such as Gneerings and 12 mile producing the better fish.

The local beaches are showing good catches with a few chopper tailor lurking around our local gutters. Most reports came from just on dark and after along the Marcoola to Pin Cushion Stretch so keep a sharp eye out as fish up to 50cm will increase during the month. Best bait has been the usual Blue Pilchard on a gang of three 4/0 hooks rigged with a quality tough leader. Still a few good flatties on the Marcoola to Mudjimba stretch with the high tide gutters and baby blue pillies showing the better catches. Yaroomba to Mudjimba is holding dart with the bigger fish at the rear of the gutter on the last half of the run in tide. Good jew hiding in the deeper gutters from Yaroomba to Mudjimba. Most fish are coming from after darkwith either live worms on the open beach or fresh mullet strips on the rocks at night. Nice bream in the gutters at the moment with the run in tide at night on salted bonito fillets showing the best catches. Most reports came from just on dark and after along the Marcoola to Pin Cushion Stretch. A good tip when chasing bream is to throw a little burley in the water, enticing the bigger fish into the gutter.
