There are some Thumper whiting in the river!

With some glorious weather over last weekend anglers were out in force, for the offshore crew most angers were making the run outside early as winds picked up mid-morning and blew to around 20 knots. The Gneerings is a favorite at this time of the year as not only is it a shorter journey but the list of species to be caught here is very impressive. Coral trout, sweetlip, snapper have all been accounted for around the Neerings. With the warmer waters on the way an early morning fish as the sun comes we should start to see more Spanish mackerel and tuna come out to play. Trolling in this area can be very rewarding. Coolum Reef is another spot that isn’t a huge journey and with a great array of species on offer you can never be sure what will pop up. Trips to the Banks have been rewarding with some stonker pearl perch, trag jew and monster cobia all landed.
The upper reaches of the Maroochy have seen some good jew coming from the deeper holes, with paddle and fork fibes like the jackhammers from river2sea have claimed some nice fish. Jack are also coming on the chew with the low light periods the best times, live baits have been the go cast close to snags or rocky ledges. Mud crabs and sandies have been on the move with the possibility of a bit of rain to get them walking. The Bli-Bli stretch has been fishing well for quality flathead, bream and whiting with cured worms, pillies and mullet strips being the baits of choice. Back up around the mouth, late afternoon and into the night can see you hooking into some thumper whiting with nippers being the gun bait. Pincushion rocks have been holding some cracker bream with mullet gut and mullet strips attracting the attention of the bigger fish.
With the wind picking up later in the days an early morning fish down the beach has been paying off. Bream , dart and whiting have been the mainstays of the beach but the tailor are also making an appearance as these fish make there southern migration after spawning on the Frazer Coast .They tend to feed up on baitfish to put on more condition. The good old pilchard is a favored bait, when the fish are thick give the Halco Twistys a go, these lures come in two colors (silver and gold) and a range of sizes.
