Offshore anglers received a few windows off weather with last Friday and Saturday morning showing good conditions. Areas such as Gneerings and Currimundi Reefs is where maori cod, grass sweetlip, parrot and spanish mackerel were on the chew. Try quality baits like pillies and local squid to ensure better catches. Up to the north off Coolum saw pelagic’s on fire with quality long tails and spanish mackerel and the odd on the menu. The long tails were hot for small bait fish presentation slugs like the River2Sea Sea Rocks while the spanish were taking live yakka’s and floated dead baits down the burley trail. Old Women Island was a little hot showing some nice grey mackerel in close on stick baits such as the shimano rockslides. Out on the banks is where the snapper are on the run with the middle to the bottom of the banks now producing the fish. All species responded well to local squid, pillies and live baits. First signs of pearlies have been coming from Wide Caloundra with whole slimeys and large local squid landing the bigger fish.

The Maroochy River has been very popular over the last week for flathead with the soft plastics the pick of lures. Better areas are around the back of Goat Island, mouth of Eudlo creek and the stretch along the ski run with bloodworm and motor oil the winning colours. If using bait stick the mouth of Eudlo Creek with baby blue pilchards on a snooded rig on the run out tide. Looking to fish the run in try the shallows along Chambers Island and Picnic Point for some decent whiting. Quality whiting really enjoy live bait at the moment so try pumping some yabbies or soldier crabs to give you that little extra chance of a great catch. Mangrove jacks are still around with all reported catches on live bait around the Cod Hole. Anglers have reported a few tailor just inside the mouth with trolling lures in the deeper channels landing the fish. Lure fisherman have seen the bream on the increase with throwing small grubs at the pontoons along the Duporth Ave channel proving the better area.

The local beaches have a good range of gutters at the moment so try hitting the stretch from of beach from Peregian to Mudjimba as this section is holding dart and flathead with the bigger dart at the rear of the gutter when it’s at its fullest. The new moon is on its way so get ready for some Jew action with open beach gutters south of Yaroomba Headland a good option with either worms or fresh mullet strips make for the perfect bait. Nice flatties in the gutters at the moment with the run in tide showing the best catches. Using salted bonito strips for bait on a bait holder hook to give your bait longevity is the key. If you like to chase your own live worms head to Peregian and Marcoola Beaches as they have been the most active.
