Plenty of Anglers on the Beaches!

The beach has been the place to be for families over the Christmas period, with some great weather over the past week along with some great fish being reported! Whiting and dart have been caught in good numbers around the Maroochy North Shore and Marcoola areas, early morning, late afternoon and evening sessions have been the most productive. Throughout the day, the fishing can be a bit tough, so looking for those deeper gutters and holes were the fish can hide will defiantly help. During the evening periods jewies are becoming more active and starting to patrol the gutters and river mouths. Large baits like mullet and bonito strip baits are perfect baits for the job.

In the Maroochy River, there’s still plenty of whiting being caught at the River Mouth around Cotton Tree, with worm yabbies and pealed prawns being the most effective method to catch yourself a feed of whiting. Further up river, there’s been some good reports of school sized mulloway being caught during the dawn and dusk sessions. The Cod Hole has been the most popular spot to target these elusive fish, paddle vibes have been working well on the jewies and the Thumper Tails from Samaki have pinned some good fish. Upriver and in the creeks Jack are in great numbers with fish over the 50cm mark plentiful. Hard body suspending lures like the Live Minnows from River2sea have been working well along with live baits like poddy mullet and herring. Flathead are also in good numbers with the flats around Bli Bli Islands holding some quality fish. Prawn profile soft plastics have been the go with the Zman Shrimpz a real cracker.

On the offshore scene, Mackerel are on the chew, with the early morning sessions seeing these speedy fish come up to the surface and feed. When the mackerel are on the surface feeding, the most popular way of getting a couple is casting shiny metal lures such as Halco Twisties and Sea Rocks Urlta Flash in the 30 – 55 gram mark at the feeding fish and wind as fast as you can! There have been some good sized snapper, trout and sweetlip reported from around Murphy’s Reef, Coolum Reef and the Gneerings with the best baits being a ganged pillie or strip bait fished hard to the bottom.
