With the combination of hot weather and large tides has certainly given the mud crabs population a big boost. The area’s most sort after have been Petrie and Eudlo creeks and upriver from the Motorway bridge. A good tip when crabbing is to place your pots at different depths, not just parallel to the shore line. Don’t be afraid to add scent to your crab bait by soaking it in tuna oil and finally check your crab pots often. A good buck will get bored after he destroys your bait and eventually will make his way out over time. The trusty whiting are in good numbers around the back side of Goat Island and the Black banks with worms and live yabbies the pick of baits. There still nice flathead been taken up river from chambers island to the Bli Bli bridge. Try flicking prawn imitation plastics around the mouth of Petrie and Eudlo creeks or any little drains as the tide recedes. Twin Waters has trevally in plague proportions with surface lures getting the best action. The Jackson EBI Panic and Atomic Bulldog 80 are seeing the best results. The elusive mangrove jack are still on the chew up river from Coolum creek thru to Dunethin rock and don’t forget the bridge pylons in Twin Waters.

Offshore has produced had a few windows of opportunity over the last week, with the mackerel still in full force. Spotties have been slamming any of your favourite metal lures in the 20 to 40 gram size. Try areas like Coolum reef, Old Women Island, outer Gneerings and Currimundi reef. Sunshine reef seems to be the Spanish hot spot with most anglers trolling Spanish specials or deep diving hard bodies like the Samaki Pacemaker. There are still coral trout on Sunshine Reef mainly on the run in tide, you just have to get your bait past the spanyids. Live yakka’s and large pillies are still the best bait for these tasty morsels. Barwon banks are seeing Mahi Mahi, snapper, pearl perch and maori cod on pillies and squid. In close around Murphys, Gneerings and Caloundra 12 mile have popped out a real mixed bag, with squire, grass sweetlip and moses perch taking pillies and squid.

On the beaches between Northshore and Peregian have produced quality whiting on worms and peeled prawns in the lower water gutters. The dart have been on the chew on the open beach mainly taking pipis and flesh baits, fishing the higher water gutters seem to be producing the better sized fish.
