Muddies walking after the rains!

The Maroochy River has been hit with yet another decent amount of fresh. This isn’t always a bad thing, rain and fresh water play a vital part in the cleaning of river systems. It also gives the river a much needed flush out. Species like flathead, jewfish and others don’t mind the rain as ambushers they tend to fire up. There have been still quite a few nice jewfish boated in the upper reaches of the Maroochy River with anglers concentrating their time fishing the deeper hole where the more salinity rich water lies. Soft vibe lures like Jackall Transams and Zerek Fish Traps have both been claiming their fair share of fish. Also if you’re chasing “jewies” try fishing the peak bite time around first light and sundown. For more info on how to work soft vibes, sizes and colours just drop by the shop. Muddies have been on the move with some nice bucks running downriver in search of cleaner water. Fresh baits work best, bait your pots heavy with whole mullet and wait a full tide before pulling up. Bream and trevally have been active towards the River Mouth, surface lures along with small plastics can account for decent fish. And if you don’t mind getting your hands dirty mullet gut and peeled prawns can also be a good option to go with.

On the Beaches; dart to (45cm along with bream to (30cm+) have been caught along both Marcoola beach and Northshore beaches. Small strips of Mullet fillet and beach worms have been the standout baits. The odd tailor has been reported being caught after dark. Pilchards rigged on a set of 4/0 gangs with a tinsel head slid down on top of your set of gangs will give you a greater chance.

Offshore; the weather has been patchy over the past week only allowing few anglers the chance to run outside. Snapper to 60cm have been reported coming from the Gneerings and Caloundra 12mile areas, with pilchard floaters doing the best. It pays to take a selection of bait out, some days snapper will prefer mullet other day’s squid etc. For those that like micro jigging we’ve just received a selection of Zerek Chilli Padis, these tungsten weight jigs are the true definition of a micro jig. Small in size but heavy enough to get down. They are sure to be a hit amongst our local species.

Now for all the latest information log onto for up to date bar and fishing reports, don’t forget to drop into Davo’s Tackle World in Noosa or Davo’s Northshore Bait & Tackle at Marcoola to find out where the fish are biting, and remember, Tight Lines and Bent Spines!
