January 2
The estuaries are still holding some nice bream under the jetties and bridges with trevally hitting some surface lures around Labalsa Park. Prawns and live beach worms have been the best bait for whiting and small pilchards are working for flathead, juvenile jew and cod.

If you're heading offshore the fishing has been hot. Plenty of Mahi Mahi and Mackerel are on the chew. With the swell travelling ESE and wind SE the better spots to fish would be the Caloundra Inshore Reefs of 9 and 12 Mile for the Mackerel and Caloundra Wide in the prospect of some good Mahi Mahi and Wahoo. The strong SE of last week should have pushed a lot of bait off Moreton into the Caloundra Inshore Reefs so if they haven't fired they definately should be soon. There are plenty of reef fish on offer with the deeper water holding some nice Snapper still with the inside reefs holding some nice sweetlip and tusk fish.
The Mooloolah River is a great spot for a variety of fish and entertainment value. There are plenty of small Fingermark, Bream, Trevally and Whiting around Labalsa Park with a few nice flathead caught around the Basin over the last week. Kawana Island is worth flicking some soft plastics for big bream and juvinile jew fish.

Offshore is looking really great if you don't mind the rain. I find with the cloud cover fish become a little more active and feel safer to come out to play. Trolling for Mackerel has been working well with plenty of Mahi Mahi and Billfish caught out wide. For the bottom fishing snapper are still caught in deeper waters of the inside Caloundra Reefs with tusk fish and sweetlip also being landed.

The whiting are biting all over the sunshine coast. A few trevally are being caught in the canals and hard up along the banks in the Mooloolah River. Estuary cod and Mangrove Jack have been picked up at night time under bridges recently on dark nights.
Offshore has still had its spell of good fishing. Mackerel are caught where ever you have been able to find the bait schools. Coolum had a good session at times this week with some picked up at the outer Gneerings and Caloundra 9 Mile. The Blinker has had a few small King Fish caught of it floating pillys and using soft plastics hard alongside it. The middle of the Banks to the North End have worked a real treat as there have been a few Spanish, Mahi Mahi, Cobia, Wahoo and plenty of reef fish.
