Still a little rough outside for smaller craft!

With the wind over the last week sitting around the 15 to 20 knots a lot of smaller boat tended to stay in the river or on the trailer. For the anglers with larger craft that could handle the conditions the closer reef where the go. The torrential rain we had last week has again pushed bait out of the river and onto the closer reefs, this in turn gets the predators on the chew. Trout, sweetlip, cod and squire have all come from the bottom, live yakka’s, pilchard and squid baits have all claimed their fair share of fish. Micro jigs are also working extremely well at the moment. With little or no sweep you have been able to fish the lighter jigs that impart some great action. The Shimano Colt Sniper in the flat fall have been really doing the job, Another new jig to the shop is the Nomad range of jigs, they also have a flat fall range call the Gypsy which look fantastic. On the surface there are some quality pelagics around; spanish and spotted mackerel are plentiful in the clearer water. Mack tuna and the odd longtail tuna are also fairly close in.
The river coped another big hit of fresh last week as we went to press. The first day of autumn saw torrential rain that created a lot of run off on already damp ground. This in turn created a rather murky looking river, but after a few non rainy days and some tide changes the river has recovered land is again fishing well. The trevally have been prolific over the last few week and it seems this hasn’t changed. Small slugs and micro jigs on a steady retrieve have claimed a lot of fish with the area towards the mouth seeing bigger fish on the high tide. Whiting have been in good numbers around Chambers Island and Black Banks. Worms, yabbies and soldier crabs have all been top baits. Live bait has also been the key to catching some nice jacks. Bridge pylons jetties and pontoons are all places the jacks love to hide in the brighter part of the day with them tending to feed a little more aggressively in the low light periods or at night. Soft plastic are also a great way to target them with the Keitech range of plastic a particular favourite of mine. Quality bream and flathead are also feeding well with brighter coloured soft plastic and hard bodies working well.
On the beaches; Maroochy’s North Shore has seen some big surf over the past few week, this has scarfed the beach’s a little creating some great gutters. Dart are everywhere at the moment with some big fish amongst them. Small pilchards, mullet, prawns and worms have all been doing the job.
