Wind puts off smaller craft from heading offshore!

Maroochy River has been on improving with good schools of trevally moving through the river chasing small mullet and herring. Tailor have also been at the mouth of the river chasing schools of frogmouth pilchards as they move into the river. Anglers have been casting slugs like that Halco Twisty and even using micro jigs like in the larger sizes, with a fast retrieve these slugs imitate a fleeing bait fish. Large flathead have also been on the chew with the run out tide the best time to target them. Small pilchards, fresh mullet and prawns have all been excellent baits. Chambers Island has been good for whiting with some quality finish taken on poppers like the crystal pop sinking popper, this popper is fantastic as it sinks and suspense and gets right in front of the fishes face. Up River school jew have been in the deep holes up past Yandina Creek, paddle vibes like the Samaki thumper tails and the Live Target swim baits both doing the job.

On the Offshore seen things were a little difficult last week with large swells, winds and the odd storm, most angles decided to keep the boat on the trailer or a head for the river. With the offshore conditions being a little trying Sunday was the pic of the days for the weekend and Angler headed towards Caloundra 12 mile the Gneerings and Murphys for good quality snapper, tusk fish jew and the odd coral trout. Micro Jigs have been very successfully with the Blue Blue Sea rides in the 40 and 60 grams size and the Palm Slow Blats both working extremely well, when worked properly these jigs imitate a dying baitfish fluttering towards the bottom. There have also been some good schools of slimy mackerel just out of Mooloolaba so make sure you have our bait jigs ready to go. Send one of these prime live bait to the bottom out at the Barwon banks and expect to be cleaned up by quality snapper, pearlies, amberjack, or an arm stretching kingie.

On the beaches schools of Tailor have been moving up the coast it has been a bit hit and miss but when angler get onto a school they have been landing some quality fish. Gutters around Marcoola have been producing with the evening bite the best. Good quality bream and dart have also been inhabiting the gutters. Smaller jew have also been taken with the new moon last week, mullet fillet, bonito or fresh tailor fillets on ganged hooks has claimed most of the fish.
