With the wind and swell dropping over the weekend gave the offshore fisherman the opportunity they were looking for. The outer Gneerings has certainly been the featured reef this week with highly desired reef fish such as Nanagi, Jewfish and Red Throat emperor been on the chew with all fish boated are good size. Pelagics are still out in force, with most bird activity inside the blinker and just off the coast has been producing bonito and long tails. Sunshine Reef is glowing at the moment with everyones favourite the coral trout, Venus tusk fish and grass sweetlip being taken on pillies, squid and live yakka’s. North reef has been Noosa’s hot Spanish bite with most fish hitting pillies and yakka’s trolled on the Spanish Specials. Barwon Banks saw catches of snapper, pearl perch and Red throat all taken in the shallower ground around 35 to 45 meters. Spotties were a little quieter than usual with most fish caught on the troll at Coolum reef and Mooloolaba 9 mile. Lures like the Halco Laser Pro 120mm will do the job perfectly.
Twin Waters is on fire at the moment with mangrove jack taken on unweighted bonito fillets around the weir and bridge pylons. Keep you drags tight as these fish will do anything to get away. Trevally species such as big eye and GT along with the occasional barracuda have been slamming surface lures such as the Bassday Sugapens. A good tip is to ensure you have a quality fluro carbon leader like the FC ROCK to improve a safer hook up. Whiting are still going strong with Chambers Island and the Black Banks being the popular areas. Live yabbies and soldier crabs have nailed the larger fish. Large mud crabs are on offer up river from the Motorway Bridge, try dropping your pots around the creek mouths and the drains. Keep your pots out further in the low water and up close to the drains on the high water.
On the beaches has the Dart increasing in size with pipis continuing to be the favourite bait. Try casting your bait into the outer white water of the gutter, as this is where the larger fish are hiding. Sand bags on the southside of the river on the run out has been another Dart hotspot. The main beach between Coolum and Pin Cushion is the whiting hot spot, fish the run in style gutters as these are generating the better fish. A great idea when surf fishing to use bait keeper hooks as these secure the bait to the hook giving it longevity.
