Some good Trevally coming from the Maroochy!

Offshore waters have been popular over the last week with anglers fishing the late afternoon were well rewarded. With the south westerly’s a little strong most anglers have selected to fish the closer reefs. Murphys Reef has shown pearl perch, snapper, sweetlip and moses perch with pillies and squid the favoured bait. Outer Gneerings is producing snapper, spanish mackerel and sweetlip with the night time showing the bigger fish. Currimundi Reef is certainly fishing better late in the afternoon and into dark with big snapper, sweetlip and spanish mackerel taking floating pillies. Make sure when fishing these areas to have a good burley trail. Big John’s berley make a great ready-made pellet burley which is perfectly suited to this area. Just remember to throw only enough to attract the fish not feed. Further to the north at Sunshine Reef anglers have boated coral trout, tusk fish and lipper on pillies and live yakkas for the trout. Out wider on the Barwon Banks has been perfect for snapper, red throat and pearl perch with the pearlies coming from the 70 plus metre mark on slimey mackerel and pillies. A good tip when float fishing for snapper is to use Black Magic Tough Leader as there are a few spanish mackerel still on the prowl and this may give you the extra resistance you might need.
Maroochy River has good bream on the chew, with most fish favouring the mouth of the river in the deeper channels. Beast baits have been the mullet fillets and live yabbies. Good trevally have been around the Sunshine Motorway Traffic Bridge and in the current line outside Eudlo Creek with brightly coloured soft plastics claiming some nice fish. Flathead have been in the lower reaches on small pillies and prawn profile soft plastics like the Zman Shrimpz, these plastics have been designed with flathead in mind as most have a chartreuse tails, a colour flathead love. Stick to the warmer run in tide to secure the better fish. Black Banks is seeing some whiting on the start of the run out tide with most fish taking worms and yabbies. Chopper tailor have been in the river mouth and opposite the Jet Ski run with most fish taken on the top of the tide and the start of the run out. Throwing small metal lures like the Halco twisty around the 15 to 30 grams will land you a feed.
On the beaches has been very productive with good size dart on Mudjimba beach just north of Surf Air. The run out tide and the best baits have been beach worms and pipis. Whiting are still on the chew just north of the Coolum Surf Club, with most catches taken on worms in the lower water gutters. Handful of tailor from the Coolum to Pin Cushion stretch of beach, pilchards on a gang of 3 x 4/0 or 3/0 hooks has secured the fish. The better tides have been the run in. It’s been a good start to the jewie season with the big fish loving the last of the run in tide. Reports have shown that after dark while using mullet fillets, whole squid and beach worms have been the key. Good spots include out front of Stumers Creek, Marcoola Beach to Pin Cushion and Yaroomba Rocks.
