Long weekend get people fishing!

With the rather inclement weather we had recently the river turned to the colour of chocolate milk, but with a few large king tides the system cleaned up quickly. Predatory fish are in good numbers with tailor and trevally smashing bait as it returns to the system. Fishing the river mouth has been productive with the better fish caught in the low light periods. Pilchards, prawns and mullet are the prime baits. Angler are also having success with soft plastic and jigs on a quicker retrieve. Up toward Twin Waters the weir is also returning to normal with larger trevally and bream taken, smaller bright coloured soft plastic like the Dragon Maggot in the 2.5” size have worked well. Earlier in the week the upper reaches of the river were very productive with mangrove jack and jewies taken, paddle vibe type lures and Zerek Prawn were both working well. Flathead have also been in good numbers with larger females also feeding on prawns, fishing the drop offs down toward Goat Island has been the most productive area.
On the beaches things have defiantly changed with the larger swells over the past couple of weeks, better gutters have started to form and winter bream, smaller tailor and dart are moving in. With the early morning tide this week angler that are out for a night may well encounter a large jew also in the gutters. With the amount of worms that have been uncovered over the last week whiting are also in good numbers in the close gutters, worm’s, pippies and yabbies are all prime baits.
With the conditions looking near perfect over last weekend most anglers took advantage of the public holiday on Friday and headed to the closer in reefs. Arkwright Shoal was the standout with squire, sweetlip and a few other reefies on the bite. Better quality fish were caught on lightly weighted floaters. However burley was the real key to bringing them onto the bite. Out wider Caloundra 12mile has been fishing well for better quality snapper with standout fish to 80cm getting caught on 5” size Jerk Shadz from Zman. Remember when fishing soft plastics offshore to try and match the lure up with the lightest weight jig head you can get away with, most snapper will more often than not hit a plastic on the drop.
