The Noosa River has been producing the goods over the last week with some great report coming in from right throughout the system.
The whiting have again featured highly on angler’s hit list with some good fish being taken along Gympie Terrace on surface lures like the Bassday Sugapen and Fish Candy Skinny Dog, along with worms and yabbies.
Other productive spots have been the dog beach and the frying pan.
Flathead are also on the chew with some cracking flathead being caught in Weyba Creek and at the river mouth.
Soft plastics, trolled hard body lures and live baits have all produced the goods.
When fishing soft plastics getting to the bottom is an absolute must, heaver jig head are the key, so if you are in an area with a lot of run make sure you go heaver on the jig heads.
Jacks have been plentiful over the last week.
Some of the better specimens have come from the sandbags, Woods Bay and the river mouth.
Live baits, whole pillies and strips of bonito have been proving popular with the anglers that prefer bait, with the popular lure choices being the Fish Candy paddle vibes from River2sea in various colours, Keitech 4” Easy Shiners soft plastics and the new Prawnstars.
Offshore things have been going off!
The fishing on Sunshine Reef has been exceptional over last couple of weeks after the rain.
Consistent reports of quality sweetlip, nice snapper, coral trout, tuskies, and moses perch.
On North Reef there have been some nice size spanish mackerel. Trolling Rapala Xraps and Samaki Pacemakers have been working a treat along with slow trolled pillies with a squid skirt.
If you come across a patch of them down deep don’t be afraid to drop a metal slug or micro jig to try and tempt them.
On The banks, good sized snapper, tuskies, pearl perch and moses perch have all been accounted for.
In the fresh water Lake Macdonald – purple and black spinnerbaits and lightly weighted soft plastics have produced most of the fish.
The early morning surface bite has also been worthwhile with the new Fish Candy Jelly Cicadas working well.
Since Lake Borumba has been reopened to anglers after its recent closure there’s been some really nice saratoga being caught in the bays.
Fishing surface for these fish early morning or late afternoon is quite amazing as they are all over the lure, try lures like the Megabass Dog X Jr, Luckycraft Sammy or Cultiva Gobo popper.
