Offshore is still firing!

The sunshine coast has been blessed with near perfect weather over the past couple of week, and as a result, there has been some outstanding captures! For the offshore anglers, pelagics have been firing with Spanish mackerel the most sort after. Whilst most of the mackerel caught have been in the 7-8kg range, there have been some much larger fish touching the 15kg mark. These fish respond especially well to a slow delivery of burley, enough to attract a hungry pelagic but not a shark from a kilometer away, large pilchards or live bait thrown out the back and allowed to drift about a meter or two under the surface. Trolling reef edges is also a very effective method has been responsible for some quality fish. On the reef, snapper, sweetlip, mulloway and coral trout have been in good numbers with some great catches being reported just off Coolum as well as Murphys reef. Again live baits or floated pilchards down a burley trail has been a good technique. To improve your chances of catching the big one, try fishing a soft plastic bounced along the bottom, the Zman scented Jerk Shads are perfect for this and come in a great range of colors.
In the Maroochy River; the Black Banks stretch has been fishing well of a night for nice sized bream, and trevally, with the surface bite in the early evening great fun. Flathead have been in good number and feeding well on the outgoing tide. Soft plastics are the go here and with so many prawns in the river prawn profile lures are defiantly the go. The Squdgies paddle tail prawn a real favorite of mine and have been nailed by some big momma’s, don’t forget the added smear of S-Factor. The stretch of river between Eudlo and Petre Creeks has produced some quality flatties. From Chamber Island to the Motorway Bridge has turned it on over the past week with trevally, chopper tailor and queenies all in the mix, small slugs with a fast retrieve has been working well.
The beach has also been fishing well with the Maroochy North Shore continuing to produce god numbers of dart, bigger bream and the odd jewie. The low light periods are the prime times and often upsizing your baits really helps find those bigger fish. Another great way to improve your catches on the beach is adding various attractors to your rigs, such as glow beads and flasher rigs. If you’re after more information about fishing the beach, or any location for that matter, drop into Davo’s and the friendly team will talk your through it!
