Whiting in good numbers in Noosa River

The Whiting have been in good numbers with quality whiting being caught throughout the lower reaches of the river.
The Frying Pan, Dog Beach and the banks along Gympie Terrace have been the place to be.
The good old elbow slappers have been responding well to live and cured worms yabbies and surface lures like the Bassday Sugapens, Bassday Crystal Poppers and Fish Candy Skinny Dogs.

Bream have also been on the chew with some thumping bream around the Woods Bay area of late.
The humble prawn or a strip of fresh mullet has been working a treat.
Soft plastics and small hard-body lures are another great way to chase bream and when fished on super light braided line or straight through fluorocarbon can provide some great fun.
There have been some great flathead in the river, bouncing soft plastics along the bottom would have to be one of the most effective methods, with one of the standouts being the Keitech Easy Shiner in various colours.
By-catch such as trevally, tailor, mangrove jack and school jew have also been excited by these great looking plastics.

Offshore with the wind up in the afternoons anglers have had to make a run out early, but for those who managed to get out were well rewarded with some quality sweetlip, pan sized snapper, tusk fish and coral trout at Sunshine Reef.
Micro jigs continue to be a standout lure on our closer reefs with the Shimano Colt Sniper and Colt Sniper Fall being some of the standouts.
Mixed schools of tuna including long tail, northern blue fin and Mack tuna throughout the bay, small soft plastics and metal slugs have been working well.
North Reef has fished well for sweetlip, moses perch, venus tusk fish, cobia, coral trout, Maori cod and gold spot cod.
There are still plenty of mackerel around with some quality Spanish on the bite.
