Beaches fishing Well!

Fish on is the best response I can give to the beach fishing lately. This week the bream have been the pick of fish being caught in the surf. One of my all-time favourite hooks to use for bream is the Mustad Penetrator 1/0 or 2/0 depending on the size of the fish that have been caught. Best baits are fresh mullet and bonito fillets on a running sinker rig. A good tip to increase you bream catch is to start placing a small hand full of Big Johns Pellet Berley in the water around your feet. This will slowly disperse into the gutter and out thru the entrance bringing the fish in. Tailor are on the open beach and around the mouth of the river, with the run in posing the better catches. Use smaller pilchards on either a 3 x 3/0 or 3 x 2/0 gang hook rig depending on the bait size or alternatively a snooded rig would do the job. If you would like a feed of whiting the shallow water gutters up at Peregian Beach have shown good catches with worms the pick of baits. If you like to fish the rocks try the Yaroomba section where there have been small catches of squire and sweetlip on fresh mullet and squid.
In the river has good bream on the chew with nice fish just inside then river mouth on gut and mullet flesh. Further up river try around rocky outcrops, pylons and jetty’s as the bream love this type of structure. This is a great area for throwing small minnows and crab imitation lures. Good examples include Cranka Crab and the Ecogear SX40 and SX48 lures, let the crab slowly sink on the structure and lightly bounce the lure along which makes this irresistible to bream. Mud crabs are still on the run further upriver around Bli Bli Islands and the mouths of creeks. On those bigger tides keep them in close and move them into the deeper water on the last of the run out will improve your catches. If you’re after a feed of whiting there are still good catches lurking around Goat Island and the Black Banks with worms securing the better catch.
Offshore reef species have certainly started to increase in size with the close in reefs like Gneerings smashing out trout, squire and sweetlip. Coolum is showing snapper with the better fish at first light, so get up there early to avoid missing the bite. Good snapper, sweetlip and moses perch on Murphys Reef and Mooloolaba 9 mile, the bigger fish have mainly been taken at night fall. Best baits for these reefs is pilchards, slimey’s, local squid and don’t forget to burley. There are a great range of ready-made burley products available instore, either frozen or dried pellet form. Further out on the Barwon Banks has seen good snapper, pearl perch and moses perch, with the pearlies coming from the 90 metre mark. The coral trout are still around with Sunshine Reef the best spot, fish up to six kilo have been boated and the occasional spanish around as well. Live yakka’s and fresh mullet fillets are the better baits.
