Report 19/2/16

The beach and rock have been producing some nice fish!

This week has continued to test anglers with more trialling conditions. For the offshore fisherman unfortunately there has been very little reported from out wider. The wind is looking like it could possibly ease up mid-week so have a few metal slugs in 40-70 grams handy as there should be schools of spottie mackerel and tuna feeder out wider in the blue water. The inshore reefs will be holding healthy quantities of bait flushed out by all the fresh, prospecting with a few larger soft plastic presentations for sweetlip, squire and coral trout may pay dividends.

The Maroochy River itself is still running fairly dirty with a lot of fresh water in the system. Like mentioned in previous weeks concentrating efforts towards the river mouth will see better results. Whiting and flathead have been reports from around the islands on the last few hours of the run in tide. The cod hole has been a bit of a lucky dip producing a few jew and jack late at night for those wishing to brave the weather. On the very last of the incoming tide trevally have been tormenting bait at the river mouth which will relate to them taking a well presented soft plastic or small surface popper. The Twin Water Weir has been very popular with the strong flow in tidal areas creating strong current lines, this in turn brings in larger quantities of bait. Smaller trevally and queenfish have been taking full advantage of this and have been feeding very aggressively around the change of the tide. Small live herring have been very successful or for the lure addicts opting for a smaller micro jig presentation has been rewarding anglers. The keen crabbers have been loving these conditions seeing good numbers of crab on the move with reports of decent size bucks around. A good little trick is to have a feel on the underside of the crabs shell, checking to see if it is full and if empty releasing it which will only aid future stocks.

Along the beach front newly formed gutters have been producing dart, bream and the odd whiting on fresh dead baits, with a possibility of a jew at night. Yaroomba rocks have been producing the odd sweetlip and squire on dead cut baits early of a morning and two hours either side of the high tide.
