The Noosa River has again come up with the goods with angler enjoying some great sessions on the trevally, Good numbers of GT’s golden and the odd diamond trevally have been taken around Woods Bays. Plastics like the Keitech Easy Shiners have worked well while the early morning and late afternoon has seen fish feeding on the surface so popper and surface walkers have been the go.
Good size giant trevally have also been schooling up around council chambers at Tewantin. Small school sized jew, bream and the odd tailor have been taken from the river mouth on the incoming tide. Good quality whiting have been taken from the dog beach and frying pan as well as along the Gympie Terrace stretch. There have been good numbers of flathead being taken on soft plastics throughout Weyba Creek. The 3 inch Dragon Maggot plastics have been doing a great job.
On the beach whiting have been in most of the gutters along the North Shore, they have been biting on live worm baits, pippies and prawns, Tailor have also been on the chew with North Shore beaches getting the best results. Good sized jewfish being taken at night along the southern beaches as well as tailor and flathead. When beach fishing look for those gutters and deeper holes close to shore, cast to the back of the gutter and slowly roll your bait back into the gutter, fish tend to congregate in the deeper sections with the added cover of the white water.
Offshore the wind has still been up so the closer reefs have been popular. Longtail tuna being taken on floaters around Sunshine reef as well as snapper and sweetlip. For the larger boats snapper and Pearl Perch are worth targeting on the Barwon Banks and Hards but only if weather permits. The charter boats did a couple of trips up to North Reef, the weather was a bit average with winds to 20knots, moses perch, teraglin jewfish, venus tusk fish, sweetlip, gold spot cod and coral trout were all accounted for on one of the trips. Another of the charters did a run out to the Barwon Banks and were well rewarded with gold band snapper, hussar, moses perch, pearl perch and amberjack.
In the fresh, Lake Mcdonald has seen quality bass being taken on lightly weighted plastics from the edges of the weed beds.
