There is a nice deep hole up at the top pocket where the rocks meet the beach at Pt Cartwright but it seems there is some deep water access right along the top end of the Kawana Stretch. Dart, whiting and flathead will be your main target species and beach worms or ganged small pillies will be the pick of the baits. The rivers are holding quite a few trevally species with some good sized ones caught on live herring through the night. Golden Trevally have been readily caught along the Labalsa Park Stretch. Whiting and flathead have been on the bite in the basin of the Mooloolah River. Early morning and late evening fishing will bring you the best catches.

The fishing in our rivers has started to warm up along with the water temperatures after all the long hot days we have had in the last week and the reason i have been told is due to the metabolic rate increasing speeding up in the fish as the water temp increases, now i might be wrong about that and if you feel this isn't correct feel free to start a discussion about it but regardless of this the fishing is looking exciting for this weekend, and even though conditions may not be ideal for off-shore fishing it may come good enough for a trip off-shore yet.
Offshore:- Mackerel at the Blinker and East of Old Woman Island(Mudjimba Island) and Tuskfish and Grassy Sweetlip on the bottom in those areas as well, the FAD should be starting to hold a few bigger Pelagics and a big Saifish was caught on a Live-bait on Saturday off Mooloolaba.
The Beach:- some solid Dart Whiting and Bream have been caught in the gutters along Kawana beach along with the occational flathead. try beach worms for dart and Whiting and prawns for bream and small ganged Pilchards for the Flathead.
Up the Creeks:- There have been reports of some solid Whiting at Coochin Creek and the Upper reaches of the Mooloolah river and the Mangrove Jack are starting to mark an appearance around the bridges along with the highly predatory Trevally which are bucketloads of fun.

There have been reports of the bait starting to move in around the inner reefs such as the Gneerings Shoals and Currimundi Reef. There has also been some exciting river fishing over the last couple of days with a mate of mine catching a couple of nice Mangrove Jacks last night one on a plastic worked super close to the pontoons in the Mooloolah River canals and another on a live herring floated in under a bridge in the Mooloolah River, there have also been some good numbers of flathead getting around and using these two techniques along with a lot of persistence can see you reaping some tasty rewards,beaches have seen some catches of dart and summer Whiting on Sand/Beach Worms and the bream and flathead have been falling prey to Small floated Pilchards and whole prawn baits.
