Maroochy River has been plentiful!

It is all about the flathead in the Maroochy River; quality fish have be caught in the lower stretches of the river with the best results seeming to be on the run out tide. Whole fish baits like small pilchards, hardy heads and frogmouth pilchards have been the best dead bait offerings. For those of you that love chasing them on lures, soft plastics in both the 4” paddle tails and prawn profiles have been successful. There have been plenty of quality whiting caught around Chambers Island, Picnic Point, the Black Banks and Nojoor Rd areas. Worms’ baits have been securing the better fish. The light wind conditions have been perfect for chasing whiting with surface lures. Popper around the 70mm size has been very successful. Some good sized tailor are showing up around in the lower stretches of the river. Live baits and fresh flesh baits have been the best option to target these fish. The night owls have seen the odd jew caught around the deeper sections of the river. Paddle vibes and live baits have been accounting for some good fish when fished around heavy structure. Trevally catches will also improve over the next week with that morning and afternoon tide, poppers and surface walkers have claimed some great fish in the low light periods.

On the beach; live worm baits have been accounting for some good whiting from the gutters along Marcoola beach and the Maroochy North Shore. Those same gutters have been producing good sized tailor at dusk and dawn. Dart and bream are in good numbers on the high tides. We are still hearing of good school jew around the rocks at Yaroomba with local squid and fresh mullet the ideal baits. For those that are planning the trip to Fraser, reports of tailor are starting to filter in. Don’t forget to buy your baits locally as bait on the Island can be a bit pricy.

For the offshore anglers; the wind and swell conditions last week were a bit average with both the wind and swell up, but after the change on Sunday this week is looking great for offshore. Report are coming in of large cobia being caught around Murphies and the Outer Gneerings. Fishing with live baits like yakkas and slimies on a floater rig has seen the best results on these fish. Coolum Reef has producing sweetlip, moses perch snapper and trout. Fishing hard to the reef with a size 10 ball sinker right down to the hook has been very successful. Mackerel are starting to move north as the water temperatures drops but there are still a few rouge spanish and smaller schools of spotted mackerel and tuna rounding up bait schools. Snapper numbers are defiantly starting to improve with better fish showing on the closer reefs. The Gneerings, Currimundi, and Coolum reefs are all worth a look. Fishing trough a burly trail with a pilchard floater is a great way to land a knobby.
