Report 29/6/17

With the beautiful weather and the new moon phase last weekend certainly got all areas running hot. The offshore fisherman where pleased with the smooth conditions of late, offering perfect bar crossing conditions. Barwon Banks certainly provided good catches of snapper, pearl perch, cobia and hussar with most fish taking whole squid, flesh baits and pillies. Closer in on Murphy’s Reef and the Gneerings has shown snapper, grass sweetlip and moses perch taking squid, slimey mackerel and pillies. Up to the north on Sunshine Reef and North reef is seeing moari cod, venus tusk fish, and squire best baits have been live yakka’s, pillies and squid. Most fish have been taken at first light so be early. There have been quite a few school mackerel smacking the surface, so make sure you have your spin rod rigged ready with a metal lure in the 20 to 40 gram size.

Cooler mornings in the Maroochy River has seen good bream on the chew, with most fish favouring the mouth of the river in the deeper channels. Best baits have been the mullet fillets and live yabbies. Trevally have been smashing surface lures like the Sugapen and Zippin Ziggy’s around the current line outside Eudlo Creek. 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. Good size Tailor have been in the river mouth and some choppers 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 Sea Rock Pilchard slugs around the 15 to 40 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 about in the gutters just north of the Coolum Surf Club, with most catches taken on worms in the last half of the run out. 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 week for the jewies 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 the gutter north of Stumers Creek, Yaroomba rocks and Pin Cushion up to Marcoola Beach.
