Sunshine Coast – weekly fishing report

Welcome to another Sunshine Coast fishing report. We hope you’ve been able to avoid the wind and reel in some great catches this past week. As always, we’re here to provide you with the latest information on what’s biting and where. With the recent run of poor conditions over the past week, this report is a little shorter than usual. Fingers crossed the weather turns soon and we can all get back out there!

Max caught a nice bream on a MMD Splash Prawn.


Before the wind picked up, offshore fishing was on fire. The water temperature remained high at about 24C but expect a big drop in coming weeks. Mackerel and tuna can be found in good numbers still. Snapper, pearl perch, grass sweetlip, amberjack and venus tuskfish catches were reported off Caloundra and around Gneering Shoal and Barwon Banks.


The Noosa and Maroochy rivers have fished well this week, rewarding anglers who braved the windy conditions. Some big flathead and jewfish were landed using live bait and swimbaits. Bream were thick and taking almost anything on offer. Frozen prawns and strips of squid were the most successful bait options.

For those fishing with soft plastics, try a lightly weighted Ecogear EcogearAqua Bream Prawn or Atomic Plazos Grubs. Hard-bodies – including the Jackall Chubby Deep Floating and the Pro Lure XS36 Crank – have been claiming the rewards.

Beau and an awesome jewfish he caught on a recent trip.


Some great bass catches were scored over the past week, with reports they’ve been caught in the smaller run-off creeks. Pro Lure Clone Prawns claimed plenty of quality bass.
