Maroochy River is firing!

Trevally have been on the chew early morning and late afternoon from around the traffic bridges, small soft plastic presentation like the Zman Miinowz in the 3 inch size as well as the Berkley Powerbait Nemesis in 4 inch have gotten some great results, fishing tight to the pylon seems to be the way to go with the fish using the structure as cover. The deeper hole up from Bli-Bli Islands and past Coolum Creek are still holding some nice jew with school sized fish feeding on small baitfish and prawns coming past with the tides. Larger soft plastics and live baits have been the go here. Bream are still in great numbers in the river with their spawning season just about completed, these fish lose a bit of weight over this period and this makes them feed harder to put on condition. Small bait like mullet and bonito strip baits have been perfect for the job as well as prawns and small fish baits. Large female flathead are really starting to show, this will only improve over the coming months as these fish move into their spawning cycle. Whiting are in good numbers with Black Banks and Chambers Island being the prime areas, freshly pumped yabbies or live beach worms have been the best of the baits. Mangrove Jacks are starting to feed that bit more as the waters warm, most fish have been taken around Twin Waters and Maroochy Waters. Live baits of poddy mullet and herring are the bet baits.

Along the beachfront, reports of tailor have been coming thorough with the new moon, it has been a bit tough to find a good gutter at the moment but I am lead to believe there are a couple up towards Yaroomba and south of Marcoola surf club opposite the airport. Early morning off Northshore beach and around Pincushion Island have also produced some good fish and with the tide cycle moving around to early morning highs last week there were plenty of anglers fishing, good size dart, trevally and bream were also inhabiting those same area so if you are up early you should score a feed. Whiting numbers are also improving with the area north of Coolum and around Stummers Creek popular.

Offshore has been fished really well late last week with the wider reefs producing the larger catches. Up to the north off Sunshine Reef, anglers have boated squire, maori cod and grass sweetlip. Murphy’s and Gneerings haven’t been extremely busy, but are still providing a handful of snapper, grass sweetlip and moses perch with pilchards and squid the best baits. Out wider on the Barwon Banks and up on The Hards is seeing the most action. Big cobia on pillies and live baits while the pearl perch are taking slimey mackerel and yakkas. Worthy catches of snapper, sweetlip, and venus tusk fish have preferred the pilchards and squid.
