Perfect Conditions to Hit the Water last Weekend!

With the great conditions we have been having, it’s hard to leave the boat sitting in the shed. Out the front tuna are still in good numbers. Coral trout are still plentiful around Sunshine Reef as well as sweetlip and squire. Fishing hard to the bottom is the real key when it comes to targeting coral trout, so the sinker just above the hook is the key, Micro Jigging has also been the way to attract a nice reef fish, give the Palm slow blatts a go, these Jigs come in a range of colors and weights and are perfect for the shallower reefs. Snapper are starting to come on the chew, with some nice fish coming from the Barwon Banks, the pilchard floater method has been the most productive, Pearl Perch, Maori Cod, Sweetlip and Jewies have also been getting in on the action with some outstand fish boated over the past week. The Gneerings, Coolum and Currimundi reefs are all holding quality pan sized Reef fish. Spanish Mackerel are still about with plenty of fish taken on deep diving lures, the closer reefs seem to be more productive.

The Maroochy River Mouth has really turned it on this week with everything from school jew, bream, trevally and tailor moving over the bar and through the mouth on the run in tide. Whiting have been in good numbers around the Black Banks, Chambers Island and Cotton tree, small poppers and live yabbies have proven really successful in landing the bigger fish. Early morning starts, around the Cod Hole and the mouths of Petrie and Eudlo Creeks has proved to be worthwhile for trevally, bream and flathead. With plenty of prawns in the river a lot of the fish have been falling victim to a slow rolled Zerek Hot Legs live Shrimp. Further up river at the deeper sections near Bli Bli islands has been the spot to be for some good sized school jew, live baits and soft plastic paddle vibe lures like the Thumper Tails from Samaki lures have been coming up with the goods. Casting around the snags and rock bars up towards Dunethin Rock has seen the odd good jacks caught over the past week. Suspending Hard body lures have been perfect when targeting jacks.

The Maroochy Northshore Beaches have been fishing particularly well, with whiting, bream, dart and flathead coming from between the Life Guard Tower down to the mouth, worms, pippies and small pillies have proven the best baits for them. Tailor Jew and larger flathead have been caught between Marcoola Surf Club up to Yaroomba rocks. The rocks at Yaroomba and Coolum have been good for squire and sweetlip, with some lucky anglers doing battle with tuna and smaller mackerel.
