Maroochy Report

The river has been firing, with bread and butter species continuing to turn it on for local anglers. Flathead, whiting and bream have been holding around the River Mouth in good numbers with fish responding well to live baits. Pumping yabbies along the flats has seen the best success. If you can’t get live bait then try peeled prawn and cured worms for whiting, with flathead also taking a liking to whitebait and small froggies.

A couple of important things to remember when chasing fish around the River Mouth is firstly to fish the change of the tides. The reason we like to fish the change is because you get less run, with the fish tending to stay in the area and feed more aggressively. Berley is the second most important tool when bait fishing the Mouth area. Berley is crucial to bring the fish to you, and it can also help to turn fish on that are shut down.

Another area that fishes well in the same way is off Goat Island. At times we can see big schools of whiting come through with fish up to 40cm not uncommon.

There are more and more reports of mangrove jack starting to bite in the upper reaches of the river with the deeper holes being a good place to start looking. Night fishing is one of the best ways to catch these often elusive fish. During the warmer nights these fish will often venture away from structure and into deep dark holes in search of prey. Often we’ll fish bigger size plastics and soft vibes into these holes in search of jack. It’s important to be persistent and to give each spot a good hit before moving.

On the beaches, the gutters right along Northshore and Marcoola beach have been producing quality whiting, bream, flathead and dart during the day. There are also tarwhine, chopper tailor and jew on offer after dark.

Offshore: conditions eased off towards the end of the school holidays, with anglers able to make the most of the average days. Quality snapper, cobia, tuskies and moses perch were reported around Caloundra 12 mile, while in close the Inner Gneerings was the pick of the spots with squire and other mixed reefies on the chew.
