Things are Heating up on the Sunny Coast!

With the relentless south easterly trade winds over the last week has made it very bumpy for the offshore anglers. The early mornings have shown the lighter winds giving only the keen anglers the chance to bag a few. Because of the rain we are still seeing a high amount of live bait around Old Women Island and the Blinker. Big Jew have started to pop up on those close in reefs so have you’re live baits rigged and ready. Currimundi, Murphy’s reef and the Gneerings have produced snapper, grass sweetlip and Maori cod. Floating pillie out on these reefs was responsible for most catches. There’s been quite a few schools of Mahi Mahi around the Currimundi reef area, where the floating pillie has also been the victim for these great eating table fish. Out wider on the Barwon banks showed good Jew, snapper, sweetlip and moses perch on the shallower grounds with local squid and pillies the pick of baits.

The river is still the best option and the recent rain has stirred up the Mud crabs. Areas around Bli Bli Islands and Coolum Creek are seeing the bigger shells. Keeping an eye on well baited pots either side of the high water has been the time with the best results. Still a lot of baitfish around keeping the mangrove jack very active, try around the deeper holes near the Motorway Bridge and further up river near Coolum and Eudlo Creeks. Good catches of whiting throughout the lower reaches with the popular areas including the Black Banks, Chambers Island and the back of Goat Island. The better catches have been from using worms and live yabbies. Flathead have been taken around back of Goat Island and outside the mouth of Petrie Creek with catches taken on soft plastics and small pillies. Better performing colours include bloodworm and motor oil with curly tails the winning shape. Twin Waters has seen a few trevally inside the weir, surface lures like the Sugapen are showing great results.

The beaches were impacted with strong south easterly’s which gave the keen Jew fisherman a shake-up. There were a few legal Jew taken around the bottom of Yaroomba rocks with the Tru Turn strip bait rigs baited using mullet fillets giving the results. The same area also seen anglers bag a few grass sweetlip on the same rig. Staying on the topic of rocks, the area around Noosa National Park is hooking a few snapper on the top of the tide. The open beach is showing a wide variety of gutters allowing anglers a larger choice of areas on the open beach. The performing stretch between Northshore to Peregian proved to be the better area to fish. Whiting are abundant along this stretch with the lower water showing the better catches. Beach worms either cured or live have been the proven winner.
