Perfect angling weather!

With light breezes and little swell last Sunday, anglers headed offshore in droves. There have been heaps of snapper and pearlies around the reef at the moment with Murphy’s Reef, Coolum Reef, Barwon Banks and the Hards are producing some outstanding fish. Snapper have been well spread throughout most of the major reefs, with some bigger fish caught during the lower light periods. There has been the odd coral trout taken from Sunshine Reef, fishing hard to the reef is the best way to come into contact with a nice trout. There’s plenty of big cobia hanging around at this time of the year and they love nothing more than live bait on a slow sinking floater rig. With the smaller tides and less run try and get a good burley trail going, then send down a couple of light or even unweighted baits. The snapper will be drawn in the burley and hopefully find your baits.
In the river; those cooler nights make fishing the Maroochy River perfect if you are into chasing trevally and tailor, these fish seem to revel in those cooler water temperatures and with the Maroochy River having plenty of bait fish on offer these predators are attracted to the river as a food source. These cold water predators love nothing more than forcing bait to the surface to feed so casting surface lures can see some amazing results. For the anglers that are working off the banks; the river mouth and dog beach area has been producing great number of quality bream, whiting and flathead. Live worms and yabbies have been the best on the whiting while live herring have been standouts for the bream and flatties, for those of you without a cast net or yabby pump, pilchards and worms have been the favourite dead baits. The Bradman Ave stretch of the river has also been producing with prawns and worms the favourite for the kids. Heading a little further upriver the area around Bli Bli Islands and the first ski run has been producing jew fish in the low lights periods morning and afternoon.

Maroochy North Shore has again been firing for bream with the quality fish coming from the Pincushion area, this is that great time of the year when they start to schools up to spawn. Another fish you find prevalent this time of the year are Jewies, these fish love nothing more than a fresh tailor fillet so if you catch a smaller legal tailor take the fillets off and run it down a set of 4/0 ganged hooks. The Northern beaches around Marcus and Peregian have also been seeing tailor and jew activity, Just remember jew tend to hunt more on the darker nights so the bigger tides around the new moon is the ideal time to target them.
