Report 24/2/16

February 20
Morning report:
Offshore as been seeing plenty of tuna and a few good mackerel schooling up the bait to the surface. Although there isn't a lot of bird action this could change in the coming weeks. We have had a slow start and March usually brings out the bigger predators. Fishing the beach is best for those with a larger rod as the swell on the coastling is looking at 1.3m. But if you are wanting to head there the easiest time will be at low tide to hit the close in gutters for flathead, whiting and dart. The Mooloolah River has been performing quite well with the variety of species caught just phenominal this summer. Bass are in the upper reaches and trevally, queenfish and big bream are hitiing baits in the lower reaches of the canals and main river. Kawana Island and Minyama around Bridge Seafood have seen plenty of Trevally. Labalsa Park has been over run with small whiting but there are plenty of big whiting and bream on the high tide.
Afternoon report:
The reports coming in from this mornings trip offshore have showed alot of school and spotty mackerel hitting small baits on the surface although very hard to pick them up. Small heavy slugs did the trick on light 10-15lb set up the mackerel were barely legal but good catch and release fun. The bream and trevally are in good force on the Mooloolah River with plenty caught around the trawlers, Labalsa Park and Minyama Island Bridge.

With the wind around the best way to enjoy the water will be in the rivers. There were plenty of Bream and whiting caught yesterday and the aid of some fish pellets worked a treat in bringing the fish to your area. Trevally are still hitting prawns and small baits in the canals and small walk the dog lures are working the best.

The Mooloolah River has been fantastic with some great variety on offer. Light lines are what catching the fish along the rock wall at Labalsa Park and a handful of burley pellets are helping too. Some big whiting are reported in Currimundi Lake recently with a few big flathead also. The upper reaches of the river systems have seen a good number of Bass in the fresh and the prawns have been met by feeding Mangrove Jack.

Morning report: The use of shiny lures and bright soft plastics will be the go to products for estuary fishing and off the river mouth rock wall. Labalsa Park has plenty of bream and whiting and some trevally are still knocking off some bait tight against the banks in the Mooloolah River and Canals.
Afternoon report: The fishing in the Mooloolaba River has been pretty good over the last few days with some big Bream and Hair-Tail caught lately at night along the Mooloolaba rock wall the Blue swimmer crabs have been caught in the lower reaches and there is word of a few Mangrove Jack around too.
