Great weather for the end of the School Holidays.

What an end to the school holidays, with a couple of storms earlier in the week this really tuned on the jacks, the upper reaches of the river were where most fish were taken with the rock bars up from Coolum Creek the most popular. Live bait accounted for some fish as well as hard body suspending lures. The pontoon 21 were working well with the darker colours claiming some good fish. Whiting have been in good numbers around Black Banks and Chambers Island, pealed prawns, worms and freshly pumped yabbies have been the go to bait. Large flathead are still being taken in the lower reaches of the river fishing drop offs and the edges of the sand banks has been your best bet. Larger bream have been around the pontoons and jetties of Picnic Point and Maroochy Waters. Smaller grub style soft plastic like the Zman Grubz in the 2 inch on light fluorocarbon leaders and light jigheads are perfect for catching some monster bream.
Offshore with the wind a little bit unpredictable most anglers headed for the closer reefs. The Gneerings was fishing well for squire, sweetlip, cobia and maori cod. Fishing with burly is key and if you can get your burly pot to the bottom you will have more success. Pelagics are also starting to come on line with some smaller school mackerel around Old Woman Island, the odd spotty and spanish are also being taken. Coolum reef has also seen some nice fish with cobia and red throat boated. For the larger craft that did get to the outer reefs, the Barwon Banks fished well for snapper, Pearl Perch, cod and jew. Large soft plastic on the Berkley Elevator Heads captured some nice fish. These Jig heads are great on the large soft plastic and have a great realistic action.
On the beach the perfect weather brought out family’s in droves, kid were catching dart and whiting from the closer gutters with prawns and worms the favoured bait, for the rock hoppers Yaroomba and Coolum Rocks saw some sweetlip and squire landed.
