September 18
Mackerel and Tuna are on the table for the pelagics on the inside reefs and as for the bottom the fishing has been producing some good sweetlip and other reef species. Burley up with some pellets as the sharks have been coming in on the fish scraps.
The river is looking beautiful and there are some good Bass been caught in the upper reaches of the mooloolah and Maroochy Rivers. Labalsa Park is still producing some good bream and whiting with a few flathead caught along the sandy drop offs. Trevally and Bream are hitting the edges of the canals and main river as they school up prawns and small bait.

Morning report: There have been Spanish mackerel out at the Barwon banks and reports of boiling bait schools being chased by lots of Tuna around Currimundi reef with the odd Mackerel in there too, and our rivers have been fishing well with reports of lots of legal(25cm) Bream and a few really nice eating size Dusky flathead(I find the best eating size between 50 and 60cm).
Afternoon report: Beach fishing along Kawana beach has been terrific over the last couple of days with these northerlies making the beach easier to fish with some great Bream Whiting and Flathead being caught, in the Mooloolaba river there have been reports of some screaming runs while using live-baits(I suspect Mangrove Jacks) and there have been a few nice Mud crabs caught as well.
Off-shore when people have gotten out there have been a few reports of action in close spinning slugs through surface chops of bait being maraudered by packs of small long tail tuna and Mackerel. Here is a pic sent in by Steven Bickhoff of some great Long-tail tuna he caught out at Currimudi Reef.

Morning report: Offshore as been seeing plenty of tuna and a few good mackerel schooling up the bait to the surface. Although there isn't a lot of bird action this could change in the coming weeks. We have had a slow start and March usually brings out the bigger predators.
Fishing the beach is best for those with a larger rod as the swell on the coastline is looking at 1.3m. But if you are wanting to head there the easiest time will be at low tide to hit the close in gutters for flathead, whiting and dart. The Mooloolah River has been performing quite well with the variety of species caught just phenominal this summer. Bass are in the upper reaches and trevally, queenfish and big bream are hitiing baits in the lower reaches of the canals and main river. Kawana Island and Minyama around Bridge Seafood have seen plenty of Trevally. Labalsa Park has been overrun with small whiting but there are plenty of big whiting and bream on the high tide.
Afternoon report: The reports coming in from this mornings trip offshore have showed alot of school and spotty mackerel hitting small baits on the surface although very hard to pick them up. Small heavy slugs did the trick on light 10-15lb set up the mackerel were barely legal but good catch and release fun. The bream and trevally are in good force on the Mooloolah River with plenty caught around the trawlers, Labalsa Park and Minyama Island Bridge.

Morning report: With the wind around the best way to enjoy the water will be in the rivers. There were plenty of Bream and whiting caught yesterday and the aid of some fish pellets worked a treat in bringing the fish to your area. Trevally are still hitiing prawns and small baits in the canals and small walk the dog lures are working the best.
Afternoon report: there have been some Pearl Perch and Quality Snapper caught at Murphy's Reef and some nice grassy Sweetlip at the Gneerings Shoals and POint cartwright shoals and some solid Trev's around Mckenzies bridge and some nice big Flathead on the Flats above Mckenzies as well. These photos were sent in by TheDamo D Bugboy who caught these two lovelyspecimens in the Mooloolah River.
