Windy conditions keep offshore anglers close to home!

We have been blessed with some amazing weather over the past few weeks so it stands to reason that angler have been out in force. On the beaches, gutters have been a little hard to come by so you really have to rethink the way you approach beach fishing. With no gutters burley is the key, small pieces of prawns, pilchards or whatever bait you are using dropped into the wash will help to attract fish within casting distance. Winter bream, tailor, whiting, flathead, and jew have all been taken over the week. Pilchards, mullet and worms have been the main baits. There has also been plenty of pippies on the beach and these make a great bait.
In the Maroochy River the water temperature has defiantly started dropping, fish like winter bream and diver whiting revel in the cooler waters, fishing bridge pylons and jetties is a great place to start when chasing these large bream. Smaller lightly weighted soft plastics like the Squidgie Wriggler are perfect for the job. Whiting can also be targeted with a lure, poppers are great fun and worked across the surface can get some amazing results. Area like Chambers Island, Black Banks and Cotton Tree have all produced nice fish on the incoming tide. Trevally are also in good numbers in the river, the most common has been the giant trevally but we are seeing more and more diamond trevally in the system. Flathead are also in good numbers with some good quality fish taken on the run out tide, fishing areas like Goat Island or drifting the banks between Eudlo creek and Petri Creek has also seen some good results. Four inch Soft plastics like Keitech Easy Shiner matched to a 3/0 jig head has been the go, the lift and retrieve method has been the most successful with most fish picking up the lure on the drop.
Offshore the wind has been a little unpredictable so most angler have been staying close to home and fishing the closer reefs. Fish qualities are on the improve as the water cools. Snapper, sweetlip, cod and trout have all been accounted for over the last week. Reefs have also been holding some nice jew. Pilchard floater have been working well as well as live baits. Schools of tuna are still about but are very flighty.
