Warmer weather has turned the fish on!

With the coast facing the warming weather over the past few weeks with the odd thunder storm in the late afternoons the Maroochy River has produced some quality fish practically mangrove jack, trevally and whiting. The late afternoon storms has meant the prawns and other types of bait fish have been getting flushed throughout the river. Fishing the early hours of the morning and late into the afternoons before the storms has seen anglers achieving great success. As predicted the first week of November was a warm one which really fired up the jacks as well as the whiting. To achieve success on a mangrove jack try and fish the calm before the storm as that is the hottest part of the day then as the storm passes try again. Bait fishing for mangrove jack can be tricky and presentation is the key. So using what they call a double snelled hook rig, which consists of two 4/0 octopus style hooks although keep in mind that circle hooks work very also. A heavy leader is a must for jacks so 25lb-40lb fluorocarbon leader will be perfect. Though the weather is warm trevally have been getting caught in good numbers ranging from 45cm-65cm. The best spots have been the Cod Hole and the River Mouth using prawn imitation soft plastics. Surface fishing for whiting this time of year is fun with some very good sized ones prowling the flats. Tide is an important key to whiting so fishing the first couple of hours of the run in and run out is prime time for whiting. Retrieval technique is a constant twitch in the rod tip with minimal pauses.
Beaches: Jewfish are still active after dark, with mullet and bonito fillets being the prized baits. Bream, flathead, dart and whiting have been on the bite during the day fishing the gutters and amongst the inshore breakers. The preferred baits have been cured worms, peeled prawns and pipis, rigged on a longshank style hook for desired results.
Offshore: With the strong northerly winds has meant minimal offshore action, but scattered reports has seen mackerel and tuna slowly moving in, nice sized snapper, sweetlip, tusk fish, some cracking cobia and kingfish. All following the big bait population we have on the coast at the moment.
