Warmer Weather will bring on the Jacks!

The beaches have been a very popular destination over the past couple of weeks, and with good numbers of big bream, dart and the odd large flathead it’s not hard to see why! On the beaches, bigger bream are cruising the deeper holes and gutters with small chunks of bonito fillet proving a very effective Bait. A night fish has also been worthwhile, with Pin Cushion Island and the rocks at Point Arkwright the place to go for a spot of jew fishing. We are also starting to see the odd school of whiting moving through the gutter on the high tide.
Offshore things have been a little quiet with the wind hampering proceedings, but for those that have been getting out there; we are seeing some nice pan sized snapper, sweetlip and the odd cobia coming from the close in reefs. For the bigger snapper and pearlies, give Murphys Reef a go as these fish still seem to be holding in the deeper water. As the weather clears in close reefs like Coolum reef and Arkwright Shoal will be the go to areas for reef fish as well as the odd pelagic as the weather and water warms up. Fish like spanish mackeral, tuna, dolphin fish and even the odd marlin will start making an appearances.
In the river it is all about the flathead, this is a great time of year to target flatties as they tend to nest up, so if you start to catch a few smaller ones keep fishing that same area as there will more than likely be a big female in the vicinity. With the warmer weather starting to approach and the occasional stormy afternoons Mangrove jacks will really start to come on. Fishing early mornings and late afternoons using lures and soft plastics have seen some great results with jacks up to 50cm being landed. Areas like Coolum creek, Maroochydore River, Mooloolah River and Kawana waters have been the standout spots to target those mangrove jacks preferable on either side of the change of tide. Ecooda 70mm shads and Ecogear SX60 have been the standout hardbodies, the new range of Chasebaits soft plastics from River2sea look great and will be a great success on the jacks this season. Down towards the mouth, Chambers Island, and Black banks has seen some good sized whiting being taken with plenty of legal fish feeding on worms and yabbies.
