There are plenty of flathead, bream and some monster whiting caught along the Mooloolah River with the boat ramps holding plenty of bream. There are patches of big trevally hitting up some tiny estuary prawns and baitfish on the edges of the canals and I think some small 2.5inch soft plastics and unweighted whitebait will do some damage on them.

Morning report: Generally after a period of rough weather the fish turn up on the bite. The wider grounds of Caloundra Wide and The Barwon Banks haven't been hit for a few weeks and I would suggest if you and your boat can handle it to try out there on day like today. The Snapper are still around with some good Pearlies and the small Spanish are randomly reported out on the wider ground with some Mahi Mahi and Wahoo. They are not in thick numbers so a float rig and/or livies will be a great way to catch one.
Afternoon report: There are reports from the Barwon Banks of plenty of Snapper and the odd Dog-tooth Tuna, and the Caloundra 12mile has been producing a good show of Pearl Perch and Tuskies with the close grounds showing some Grassy Sweetlip and Tuskfish as well a few School mackerel which have been responding well early morning to small swam baits such as Small Slimmy Mackerel and Garfish Slow trolled and there is also word there maybe a few big Spanish out around "The Blinker" so it may be worth while trying your luck with a bigger bait or Live-baits as it could mean all the difference. Nathan dropped in to the shop this afternoon to show off these fish after an overnighter out on the Barwon banks last night – a 71cm Dog-tooth tuna weighting in at 2.6kg dressed and a lovely snapper.

The prediction of overcast conditions this weekend should improve fishing conditions in the rivers and creeks and there have been some nice flathead being caught around our river systems lately, as ther is rain predicted this weekend it may be time to get the Crabpots soaking as a good flush out will really get them on the move.
