Perfect Weekend for a Fish!

With some great weather over the weekend families were out and about enjoying all the Sunshine Coast had to offer, the Maroochy River was again abuzz with boat traffic with many angler taking advantage of the perfect conditions. Whiting have been in good numbers with Black banks and Chambers Island being the prime spots, worms, yabbies and soldier crabs were the best baits and claimed some nice fish. Some anglers made the trek out to Pincushion Island and with the high tide in the morning got some quality tailor. Bonito fillet and pilchard baits on 4/0 ganged hooks claimed the majority of the fish. Flathead are still in good numbers with the better numbers of fish coming from the edges of mud and sand banks on the run out tide. Casting soft plastic up on the shallow banks and then rolling them into the deeper water has resulted it some large females. Prawn profiles are by far the most successful with the new Ez shrimpZ from Zman have really fired. Upriver the mangrove jack angler have been out in force with the rocky edges of the river up towards the Cane Bridge and Dunethin Rock their favourite hunting ground. Live bait has resulted in some nice fish.

On the beaches; the new moon has angler fishing early morning with some good results, tailor have come from the deeper gutters with the morning high tide resulting in a number of good fish. During the day the wind has popped up so this made things a little more difficult but for those that persisted, casting worms and pippies freshly harvested form the beach resulted in some nice whiting and dart. The rocks around Yaroomba have seen a mixed bag including sweetlip, bream, squire, and trevally. Fishing fresh mullet and squid baits was the way to go. Casting larger stick baits with a fast retrieve has also claimed the odd good trev.
With the wind getting to that annoying 10 to 15 knots during the day most offshore anglers were using the hit and run approach, this saw them getting out well before sunrise and back to the ramp before it got uncomfortable. Mackerel are well and truly back on the scene with good schools of spotted mackerel herding up baitfish. Tuna are also in the mix so casting slugs or trolling diving hard body lures was a favoured approach. The deep diving Pacemaker lures from Samaki have some great new colours with the Dorado a real crowd pleaser. The Gneerings, Coolum Reef, Arkwright Sholes and Handcock Sholes have all reported pelagic activity. For those of you working the bottom the sweetlip and trout have been in good numbers with baits fished hard to the bottom getting the best results. Murphys and the Barwon Banks have seen pearl perch, snapper and some stonker cobia.
