The swell over the week started to decrease. The closer in areas such as the Gneerings and Currimundi seem to the favourites with squire, grass sweetlip and moses all on the menu. Best performing baits were pillies and local squid. Up to the north saw Sunshine and North Reef producing squire, venus tusk fish, good size maori cod and a handful of coral trout thanks to some local rainfall. All species responded well to local squid, pillies and live baits. Spanish mackerel taking slowed trolled skirted baits and deep diving lures.

The Maroochy River has been a smorgasbord lately with the rain providing a good run off making the mud crabs feed. Stick to the areas up river from Bli Bli Bridge to the Cane Bridge and Coolum Creek. Flathead are loving soft plastics for the lure fisherman and baby blue pilchards for the bait anglers. Try the mouths of Eudlo and Petrie creeks and the back of channel Island on the run out tide. For the run in stick to shallows on Picnic Point the back of Goat and Chambers Island for some decent whiting. Live yabbies, soldier crabs and worms have shown the bigger fish. Mangrove jack are on the move with surface lures taking charge up the Eudlo and Petrie Creeks. Throwing your lures on the last of the run in and the start of the run out at submerged timbers and snaggy rock bars will ensure a good sized fish. For the bait fisherman, try live baiting around the Motorway Bridge and Cod Hole areas. Bream have started to grow with most trophy fish coming from structures like old jetty’s and pontoons along the south channel between picnic point and cotton tree.

The beach has been blessed with the large swell opening up some new deeper gutters along the open stretch between Peregian to Mudjimba beaches. The deeper gutters tend to see the dart and whiting sizes increase with the bigger dart at the rear of the gutter when it’s at its fullest. The whiting will favour the last half of the run out while staying closer in the gutter. Traditional baits are a must at this time due to the sand being stirred up, so using worms and pipis will secure you a decent feed.
