Report 8/3/19

With the winds calming down a little and a bit of fresh in the water the Maroochy is starting to pick up a little on the fishing front, trevally numbers are improving around the mouth and Cotton Tree area with larger fish chasing bait brought in on the tide. Flathead also seem to be improving in both fish caught and size, plastics like the Zman Minnowz in the 3inch size have been popular on a 1/6 jig head. Cast up into the shallows and rolled back into the deeper water seem to be the best technique. Jack have been a little quiet with most fish reported coming from the upper reaches around the old cane bridge. Whiting have been in good numbers around Black Banks, Chambers Island and Picnic Point. Worms,’ prawns and yabbies have all been great baits. Bream numbers are also starting to improve with plenty of fish hanging around the pontoons in Maroochy Waters and Twin Waters. Casting very lightly weighted soft plastics on very light braided lines at the shadow lines of the pontoons has been the way most of the lure anglers have been getting them. Crabs are also on the move with fresh water starting to run into the system, sinking pots into the deeper holes has seen some nice bucks coming from the upper reaches.

With the beaches scarfed out there are some great gutters on offer, we should see a few jew and tailor just after the new moon cruising those gutters so get out the big rods, come in and grab some fresh mullet and get amongst them. The whiting and dart will be feeding on pippies and worms that have been exposed with the weather so get the family down there and have a cast with some worms or yabbies. Off the rocks you may pick up a sweetlip or squire first thing in the morning as well.

On the offshore scene things were still a bit lumpy outside, a couple of crew did get out on jet skis and picked up some nice tuna. This weekend we are hoping the weather will come good and we can head out and get amongst them. With very little fishing pressure there is going to be plenty to choose from with big mackerel on the cards, live baits will be the first over the side just lightly weighted, a soft plastic also making its way to the bottom, having a few dead baits is also handy just in case you can’t get any live bait. Slow trolling larger baits like slimy mackerel, sauri and large pilchards on chin guards is also a great way to go. If you are going to anchor up then get that burley happening, cut pilchard are a good start but a frozen block on the bottom is perfect and if you can position it up current you will be fishing in the burley trail. Remember the close reefs will have plenty of bait on them so give them a go before heading out to wide.
