Perfect weekend for a fish!

With plenty of sunshine over the weekend, angler were out and about taking in all that the Sunshine Coast has to offer, for those that decided not to take a run outside the river fishing has really come on with plenty on offer for anglers. The upper reaches have been fishing well with plenty of baitfish holding around the mouth of Coolum Creek. School jew, jacks, big flathead and even the odd threadfin have been reported coming from the area. Further up river, Dunethin rock has been fishing well for good size bream, flathead and trevally with early mornings being the best time to fish. Back downriver the sand banks from Bli-Bli Bridge to Petrie Creek have been producing good numbers of flathead with slow trolled hard-body lures like the Zerek Tango Shads claiming their share. Big bream, tailor, trevally, flathead and jew have been active at the River Mouth with the top of the tide fishing well. Try fishing around the low light periods to increase your chances. Chambers Island, cotton tree and Picnic Point have been busy with plenty of families enjoying a fish, whiting, bream and flathead have all taken a liking to the many worms, prawns, yabbies and bits of squid on offer.

On the beaches; it still pretty tough to find a good gutters along Northshore beaches, a big cast to get to the back of the breakers has been where most of the fish have been, reasonable size dart, whiting, bream and flathead have all come from the beaches during the day with peeled prawns and small mullet strip baits working best. Of a night, anglers have been tangling with some nice tailor and jewies, most of these have been taken north of Coolum Beach and out the front of Stummers Creek, fresh mullet strips and pilchards are the go to baits.

Offshore; in close it can still be a bit hard to find the fish, with water conditions so clear burley is a must, anglers have been getting squire, sweetlip and maori cod around Coolum Reef. There are schools of tuna starting to show up in good numbers, they are feeding on small rain bait so to match the hatch you will have to throw smaller slugs like the Zerek Chilli Patties or the River2sea Searock. Anglers have reported both mack and long tails in the schools with one kayaker reporting a couple of unstoppable fish. To the south Caloundra 12mile has been very popular with some nice parrot and cobia reported, squid profile soft plastics have been perfect on the parrot while the cobia have been picking up floater baits mid water.
