Welcome to the weekly Sunshine Coast Fishing Report. Thankfully the wind and poor conditions disappeared this week, leaving clear skies, warm days and next to no wind. Mostly sunny conditions are expected for the coming weekend, with Sunday looking to be the pick of the days.
Snapper are slowly turning up with some quality catches reported. Pearl perch, grass sweetlip, cobia and hussar have also been on the chew. The occasional spanish mackerel have come over the side, and plenty of tuna bust-ups are about if you’re willing to chase them down.
Caloundra fishos have been rewarded with snapper, grass sweetlip, tuskfish and an occasional spanish mackerel. Reports of tailor and mulloway have also come in, with those fishing off the beach getting some good catches of dart, tailor and bream also.
The Noosa and Maroochy Rivers continue to fish well. Plenty of soapies are about, with a few bigger slabs starting to show up. Flathead were in good numbers and a few caught around the 80cm mark. Bream and moses perch were thick around bridge pylons and jetties. And local crabbers reported that catches have started to improve, with some decent size bucks caught this week.
Golden trevally, tea leaf and diamond trevally have been caught around Twin Waters, Cod Hole and Dunethin Rock.
Bass catches are coming in thick and fast, with reports of big catches in the region’s dams. Pro Lure Clone Prawns have been claiming plenty of quality bass.
