Perfect Weather for the End of the School Holidays!

With the weather last weekend perfect. Both offshore and onshore anglers were out in droves. Starting on the beaches, gutters are a little hard to find at the moment, with the slight swell gutter have tended to fill and fish are holding a little deeper. Big rods and a big cast seems to be the way to go to get to the deeper water where the fish are holding. Another option is to fish the rocks and headlands were the deep water is a little closer. Good schools of tailor continue to make their way up the coast with river mouths and the rocks producing the most fish, also the high tide is a major factor. Bream are also picking up in numbers and size with the rocky beaches producing the best fish. There have been some nice size whiting in the gutters with yabbies, worm and pippies favourite baits for the whiting anglers.
In the Maroochy River the fishing has been outstanding with a lot of different species on offer, starting down toward the mouth, whiting have been in good numbers just inside the mouth, there are a few undersized fish amongst them so don’t forget they must be over 23cm and a bag limit of 30 fish. The mouth has also fished well for tailor and bream with pilchards and mullet the pick of the baits. Tailor are right through the river with the top of the tide the best time, fast moving slugs and soft plastics also on a quick retrieve have worked well. We fished mid-week last week and got a good bag of tailor all around the 40cm mark. Trevally have also been on offer with big eye and giant trevally the most prevalent. Prawn profile soft plastics like the Squidgy Pro Wild Prawn have been the pick of the bunch. The flathead are also in good numbers with good fish right up to Dunethin Rock, large paddle tail soft plastic and soft vibes like the River2sea Fish Candies have really worked well. Jew also seem to be on offer with most fish holding in the deeper hole up stream.
The Offshore side of things has been a little tricky, as the wind has been predominantly offshore most angler have stayed in pretty close. Good sweetlip are still on offer around Old Woman Island, Mackerel and tuna are still on the scene with the water temps still up there, spotties and spanish are hitting the big schools of bait that are moving up the coast. Snapper are also showing a bit more size on the closer reefs with fish to 60cm. For the anglers that have made the run to the outer reefs they have been rewarded with larger snapper, pearlies, bigger sweetlip and some very large cobia.
