Noosa River fishing well

With the breeze up a little over the weekend only the larger craft ventured out, for those that did get out the reefs where really firing.

There were good numbers of snapper being taken on Micro Jigs on North Reef. The 40 – 50g micro jigs like TT Vectors and Shimano Colt Snipers were doing the job.

Some legal red emperor coming from North Reef with live baits doing the job. There are large schools of bait showing on the sounder at the moment so make sure you have a good supply of bait jigs.

The reefs off Double Island are fishing extremely well for pearl perch, snapper and red emperor making the long trip from the bar well worth it.

A little closer to home mixed reef species like parrot, sweetlip, cod and squire have been keeping anglers happy at Sunshine Reef with the occasional trout still hanging around.

In the river; Woods Bay has been firing up with schools of golden and giant trevally.

Casting plastics and hard bodied lures has proved the most successful method.

However they are still being taken on fresh flesh baits. Good sized diamond trevally have also been amongst the other species.

There are still good number of bream throughout the system as well as some great flathead from the first lake, the ski run stretch, near the council chambers and also quality fish in the deeper areas of Weyba Creek.

When fishing for flathead slow rolled soft plastic worked close to the bottom is a very effective way to target these fish, plastics like the Keitech Easy Shiners have been a real hit and have a number of quality fish to their name.

On the beaches we have seen some large tailor being taken off Sunshine Beach with some quality bream also amongst them.

Good schools of Tailor are starting to show up at Fraser Island with the incoming tide and deeper gutters the most productive.

Good numbers and dart, bream, tailor and flathead being taken from the gutters along the Noosa Northshore, pilies, mullet strips and salted bonito have all been good baits.

In the fresh water bass have been on the edges of Lake McDonald with weedless plastics working well.

There have been some nice bass and golden perch using live shrimps around the trees in Lake Borumba.
