Perfect Weather Last Weekend for anglers!

What a fantastic weekend it was for Anglers last weekend. It was great to see so many family’s out enjoying all that the Maroochy River has to offer. Down towards the river mouth the rocks around Pincushion Island have been great for some nice bream. Fowl Gut and Mullet Gut have both been great baits. For those throwing slugs there have been a few tailor as well as some good sized trevally. Soft plastics have also been working well when retrieved at speed. It’s coming to that time of the year where the flathead seem to grow in numbers in the river and there are some outstanding fish being caught. Work those sand or mud banks as the fish will lie in these area warming themselves in the warmer shallower waters. I like the lighter coloured soft plastics in the clearer water and fish the brighter colours in the darker water. Upriver the deeper holes past Coolum Creek have been good for some smaller jew, fishing well weighted soft plastics with a paddle tail seem to be very successful. Whiting angler are reporting quality fish around Chambers Island, Black Banks and even as far up as the banks near the Bli Bli Bridge, worms, yabbies and peeled prawns on a size four long shank hook has been the best approach.

On the beach things have also been firing, tailor are on the mind of most angler as the head to the beach in search of a good feed. Unfortunately numbers have been down a little this week as we have had those smaller tides. As we move into the new moon this weekend we should see some better tailor come in along with those bigger jew, fishing the run in tide will be the key along with a good gutter, give fresh mullet, pilchards, squid and worms a try. Most of the bigger fish will be taken in the low light periods. So an early start or a fish just on dark is prime time.

Outside the closer reefs have really been fishing well. Good sweetlip, trout, pan sized snapper, and cod have all been on the menu. Sunshine Reef, the Gneerings and Coolum Reef have all come up with the goods. Mackerel and tuna continue to be caught with a couple of quality fish taken. Out on the Barwon Banks larger snapper, pearl perch, cobia and jew have all been accounted for. Live yakkas have been the baits of choice fished through a good burly trail, don’t overdo in with the burley as all you will do is attract the sharks. For those tuna lovers you will have to head a bit further north as the waters cool, good report of longtail have come from North Reef and further up around Double Island.
