Cooler weather changes the way we fish!

With the cooler change last weekend water temperatures continued to drop. This is great news for anglers as this will really bring on the winter species. On the beaches the winter bream are really starting to show up with good numbers of fish over the 30cm mark being taken, Just remember if you get a real big one “forty cm plus” this is a very old fish and great breading stock so best to take a photo and release it to continue the betterment of the species. Also coming from the beach has been some big jewies, tailor and of course dart. Pilchards, fresh mullet, prawns and whitebait have all been working well. God gutters are a little hard to find but I am told there are a few good holes down towards Maroochy North Shore.
In the river the mouth has been one of the prime spots with bream, tailor and trevally all taken on the incoming tide, again bait has been the most popular but some angler have been using lighter gear with smaller soft plastic like the Keitech Easy Shiner in the 3in, cast out with a fairly quit retrieve these soft plastics have been chomped buy some big fish. Heading upstream Twin Water Weir is fishing well for trevally, queenfish and large bream. The bigger tides have been the evening tide so a night fish has seen some good results. Poppers and surface walkers have been getting some great results as the fish are tending to feed on the surface. The traffic bridge has also seen it fair share of success, fishing the top of the tide trevally and tailor have also been taken as the predator’s chase the bait as it comes in on the tide. Again fast moving lures have seen some good success.
Offshore things are really starting to change as offshore anglers shift their focus from pelagics to more reef species. The closer reefs like the Gneerings, Coolum, Arkwright, and Hancock Sholes have been a bit hit and miss and have been producing quite a number of undersize fish, this will only improve as the water cools and the bigger fish mover onto the closer reefs. Still some angler have been picking up some quality snapper, trout, cod and jewies. For the angler that have been making the trip to the outer deeper reefs there are some great quality fish hitting the decks including snapper to 5kg, bigger pearl perch, kingies and Sampson fish. There are still good schools of tuna but they are scattered and very timid. Fishing upwind from them and casting around the edges of the school is the key.
