River fishing well for trevally!

Windy weather over the weekend has again put a lot of offshore fishing plans on hold. For those that managed to get out last week the conditions were a little more tolerable and some great fish were boated. Coral trout have been the prime target with a lot of angler landing some quality fish, the Gneerings, Coolum Reef and Murphys Reef have all produced, a little further north, Sunshine Reef has also been a hotspot. One of our team from our Noosa Store was a commercial angler and targeted coral trout, his recommendation is always to fish hard to the reef, this mean a running large ball sinker right down to the hook, yes you do loose a bit of gear but you will be well rewarded as this puts the bait right in front of the fishes nose. Fishing plastic is also another great way to tangle with the reefies and the Zman range in the Scented jerk shads would be one of the favourites, they come in three sizes 8, 7and 5 inch with the coconut ice my favourite. Other great species that have been taken are sweetlip, squire, cod and spangled emperor.
In the Maroochy River the fishing is also on the improve, with the larger tides we have seen some nice trevally chasing the bait over the bar and into the river. Places like the River mouth, Twin Waters, and the traffic bridge have all reported good catches of trevally. I fished Oyster Bank Rd at the top of the tide and was rewarded with a 45cm Giant trevally that was bailing up bait fish against the rock wall. Small jigs cast out with a fast moving retrieve have been working well, these predators see them as a small bait fish on the run. The Blue Blue from Sea Ride Micro jig seem to work well for me. Whiting are in good numbers in the lower reaches with Chambers Island, Picnic Point and Black Banks all producing fish. Prawns worms and live yabbies have been the pick of the baits. The Red devils (mangrove jack) are still in good numbers with structure your best bet to tangling with one.
On the Beach the dart are still in good numbers with some bigger fish in the low light periods, tailor are also starting to show up with better fish on the high tide. Yaroomba Rocks has been fishing well with squire, sweetlip and large bream all taken.
