On the river it is still all about the flathead, September, October is always the best time for flathead as they get ready to spawn, popular locations to tangle with a flathead has been down towards the mouth, fishing the edges of sand bars and mud banks up river from Eudlo Creek on the run out tide has also been very productive. Prawns and small baitfish like frogged mouth and hardy heads have been very productive baits. Soft plastics have also claimed some quality fish. The Powerbait range of plastics has been a favourite, working the lure slowly along the bottom seems to be the most productive. Whiting numbers are also improving and the mouth of the river around Black Banks and Cotton Tree has produced some good elbow slappers. Worm and yabbies have been the prime baits. Trevally are also in good numbers with the bigger fish taken on the high tide around Sunshine Motorway Bridge and Twin Waters Weir. The mangrove jacks have come on strong as the waters warm, lure anglers have had success around structure like pontoon and moored boats. Live bait anglers picked up fish around the code hole and Bli Bli Bridge.

On the beach the weather has been perfect for wetting a line, fish those deeper gutters for whiting, bream and swallow tail dart, again prawns, worms and small flesh bait of mullet have claimed some nice fish. For those fishing into the evening some good sized tailor have also been taken. Off the rocks around the headlands larger bream, tailor and trevally have all been taken. The GT Ice cream has been a very popular casting slug, they are perfect for the rock as they carry a single assist hook limiting snags on the rocks.

With some sloppy conditions over the weekend it was mainly the bigger boats that headed offshore. Earlier in the week conditions were more favourable and some anglers did the run out to the Barwon Banks. Fishing the evening seems to be the most productive for snapper with some solid fish around the 70cm mark boated. Plenty of angler in smaller craft got out early and headed back in as the winds picked up, popular spots have been the Gneerings, Murphy’s, Currimundi and Coolum. Plenty of fish were taken including smaller snapper, pearl perch, jew, tusk fish, cod, and some solid cobia. With the new moon this weekend fishing the morning tides should see better result for reef anglers, this may be our last new moon before the snapper start to head south. Mackerel are also starting to turn up with plenty of school mackerel and the odd spotty taken. Mack tuna have also been seen feeding on smaller schools of bait. Now is a great time to stock up on some slugs ready for chasing those schools of bait and the pelagics that go with them.
