Weather kept anglers in close!

With the weather turning a bit average over last weekend most anglers keep to the river! Flathead are in great numbers in the river with the channels around the river mouth being the most productive. Soft plastics paddle tails and vibes have been working well in the deeper channels. Baits of small pilchard and prawns have also claimed some good fish. The whiting fishing has been very consistent this week. The top of the tide and the first hours of the run out have been the prime times with the dog beach, Picnic Point, and Cotton Tree all fishing well. Live worms, freshly pumped yabbies and peeled prawns have all been the go to bait for catching a feed. Bream have also been caught in good numbers, the river mouth and the deeper channels in the lower section of the river on the top of tide has fished well. Very lightly weighted baits fished in a well maintained burley trail has claimed the majority of fish. Tailor and some nice sized trevally were also caught around the mouth of the Maroochy, Nojoor Rd and Twin Waters with the larger fish taken around dawn and dusk. Most fish have been taken on fast moving slugs, stick baits and micro jigs. The odd winter jack and jew has been taken around the bridge pylons on the main traffic bridge, these fish are lying in wait for passing baitfish swimming down river to more saline waters, live baits have been the best option but can be a little hard to get, strip baits of mullet or bonito have also worked well. For those throwing plastics, try the darker colours in the darker waters.

On the offshore seen; with the wind and swell up last weekend most angler left the boat on the trailer, but with a major change in conditions this week there will be plenty of opportunity to head out. Plenty of angler are planning to head wide so we should see good catches over the coming week, pearl perch, sweet lip, tusk fish, Cobia and snapper should all be on the chew. An overnighter may also be on the cards and would be worthwhile with most fish feeding more aggressively in the low light periods, morning and afternoons. The Gneerings is well worth a look with some good reef species on offer, try floating a whole pilchards, or soft plastics fished through a good burley trail. For those in smaller craft, Old Woman Island should be good for some small sweet lip, squire, parrot and maybe a jew.

On the beach; Marcoola Beach has been fishing well for dart and bream using prawns, pippies and live sand worms. Fishing early morning and late afternoon, and using burley have been the best methods this week for catching larger numbers of fish. On the Maroochy North Shore anglers using metal slugs as well as whole ganged pilchards have landed some nice tailor and the odd smaller jew.
