Noosa River – the perfect place for a school holiday fish

There are still plenty of quality bream being landed off the rocks at the river mouth and around the dog beach.

Most anglers using fresh strips of mullet, whole small herring, prawns and live bloodworms.

Some nice whiting as well off the dog beach on live bloodworms, with the odd flathead being caught on livies, strip baits and soft plastics.

There have been plenty of tailor and trevally around there harassing the bait schools so soft plastic and surface lure will also fire.

Around the Frying Pan there have also been some great bream as well as some elbow slapper whiting! Great targets when using small surface lures like the Bassday Sugapen, Fish Candy Skinny Dog and Strada Virals.

Small soft plastic grubs and minnows have been very effective along with Cranka Crabs.

This time of year you’ll often find some good tailor around the frying pan, due to the large schools of mullet.

Medium size poppers and walk the dog lures are a good option and provide plenty of entertainment as you see the fish crunch the lure.

Woods Bay and the Noosa Sound has also been firing with mixed schools of trevally including golden, diamond, cale cale, tea leaf, big eye and giant trevally feeding hard early morning and late afternoon.

Micro jigs continue to be one of the stand out lures for chasing trevally throughout the river and allow you to cover a lot of area and fish the entire water column.

Some of the standout jigs have been the Blue Blue, Shout and Ima jigs in various weights.

Rigging them with an assist hook on top and treble on the bottom with also see a better hook-up rate, drop in and see the boys at Davo’s for rigging tips.

Soft plastics are another consistent producer with a good mixture of baitfish and prawn imitations producing the goods.

Take the time to rig your plastics nice and straight for maximum results!

Up on the Ski Run jewfish continue to be caught with fish up to 80cm taken on soft plastics and live baits.

The closer reef again are a favourite for angler as the wind seems to peak earlier in the day.

Sunshine Reef has seen some nice Snapper showing up in good numbers, with sweetlip, pearlies, maori cod and the odd coral trout also hitting the decks.

Again Micro jigs and soft plastics have been scoring some nice fish if you want to mix it up from the conventional bait methods.
