The heat we’ve experienced over the past week has been brought on with the northerly winds. This is great for anglers targeting mangrove jacks! Also it means that there might be an afternoon storm come through. There is nothing more that jacks like then a change in the weather particularly when the barometer is peaking before a drop. Big baits is the key for targeting big jacks! A live bait around 5-6" are ideal rigged on two 4/0 octopus hooks. Fishing for jacks at night with soft plastics and soft vibes can be extremely effective not only on jacks but also for flathead, trevally, school jew and many more.

Whiting have come onto the bite around the river mouth and Chambers Island flats. Live nippers, worms and surface lures have all been working well. For best results try fishing the start of the run in tide. Mud crabs have been running throughout the river with anglers that are constantly working there pots and using fresh baits have been getting a good size bucks. The Motorway Bridge has seen some good captures over the past week with trevally, jacks, school jew and bream all hanging around the structure.

On the beaches whiting and dart have been the most common captures along the Coast with some good models caught in the gutters along Coolum Beach. Beach worms, pipis and peeled prawns have been the go to baits.

Offshore; conditions weren’t the best last week with the wind on dropping out temporarily. For those lucky enough to get out were definitely rewarded. The Gneerings seemed to be the standout spot lately with everything from small kingfish, spotted and school mackerel through to squire being caught. TTs Vector Micro jigs along with Shimano Coltsniper jigs are the standouts. Using the suitable size jig to the area your fishing is important. For any more info on technique, jig weights and colour just drop by the shop.
