There’s some big Flathead Upriver!

With the weather a little average over the weekend a lot of anglers opted for the river. Maroochy River has been exceptionally clear over the last couple of months so a bit of color in the water will definitely improve the fishing as our pictorial friend feel a lot safer when there is a degree of color in the water. The top end of the river has really been firing with some large flathead exceeding the upper size limit of 75cm. These big girls are crucial and are the reason we have such a great fishery. Working soft plastics in brighter colors has been a great way to tangle with a big flattie. Live bait is also working well. The Twin Waters wear has fished well with some as nice sized trevally around, the code hole has also seen some good trevally as well as some small jewies. Down toward Black Banks and Chambers Island there have been some good schools of whiting snacking on worms and yabbies, in the mouth of the river we are still seeing nice tailor and bream with two hours either side of the tide the prime time.
On the beach the whiting have again been in good numbers, and the anglers are not the only ones looking for a feed, jewies have also been on the prowl, if you do catch a small whiting don’t think you can use it as bait as all fish caught must make legal size in the case of whiting that is 23cm. Slide baiting is becoming more and more popular with the beach anglers, this is when a large sinker is attached and cast as far as possible then a fresh or live bait is attached to the line using a weighted bait clip, the bait is then encouraged down the line by jerking the rod to move the bait down the line. This is a great technique as you can get the bait out a lot further. Fresh mullet has been the Bait of Choice with the late evening and earlier mornings the best times to tangle with a large jewie or tailor. Further up the coast Point Arkwright has also been producing with nice tailor and sweetlip and snapper off the rocks.
Heading offshore; Sunday was the best day last weekend and plenty of angler mad there way outside. The inner reefs have started to produce, with some nice pan sized snapper, trout and sweetlip around Old Woman Island, the Nearing’s and Coolum reef. Angler that made their way out to Murphys and the Barwon Banks were rewarded with bigger snapper, pearl perch, cobia, and cod. There was a slight swell and minimal run reported.
