Plenty of bream in the River!

With the recent run of warmer days the water temperatures will start to rise in the rivers, this should start to bring those mangrove jacks on the chew, some fish have ben take on live baits in the low light periods. Fishing live poddy mullet or herring around snags and rocky drop offs has been the most successful method. The Maroochy River has seen good bream in numbers with some larger sized fish being taken down towards the river mouth and the deeper sections of black banks and Bli Bli Islands. Small pilchards and whitebait have been the go to bait as well as the trusty mullet strips. For the lure angler’s smaller soft plastic like the Keitech Easy Shiner in the 2 and 3 inch size have been really firing. Small hard body lures are also going well with the Eco Gear CX35 a favourite. Good tailor are still being reported from the river with the run in tide and the early morning the prime time. Fast moving slugs and plastics have been the way to go and for the lure angler, while the small pilchards has done most of the damage for the bait boys. Flatties are also on the chew with some crackers coming from the lower reaches around Goat Island and up river around Bli Bli. Jewies are in great numbers with some bigger fish being taken up river in the deeper holes around Coolum Creek. Most fish are coming from live baits and deep diver lures and larger soft plastic, give the Lucky Craft Pointers a go in the hard bodies while the Zman Swimmerz have been the go to soft plastic.

Offshore has been a little tough with wind conditions not that great for smaller craft. Anglers that did find a weather window have boated squire, maori cod and grass sweetlip from the Gneerings. Caloundra 12 mile has been the favourite with nice size jewfish, snapper and cobia with the larger fish taking live yakka’s. Murphy’s Reef is still providing a handful of snapper, grass sweetlip and moses perch with pilchards and squid the best baits. Out wider on the Barwon Banks and up on The Hards is seeing the most action. Big cobia on pillies and live baits while the pearl perch are taking slimy mackerel.

Fishing the beaches we have seen a few tailor on the run with anglers reporting some good fish on the run in tide. Better times have been late afternoon and into the evening with the stretch along Mudjimba Beach and on the northern side Of Stumers Creek fishing well. Whiting are starting to come on in good numbers with worm’s, peeled prawns and yabbies all claiming good fish. Fishing mid to low tide seems to be the prime time. Flathead are also about and have been taken on small baitfish and soft plastics in the close gutters.
