WHITING have been on the chew with some cracking "elbow slappers" getting caught over the past week. To tangle with some big whiting, try fishing locations such as Picnic Point, the shallows around Chambers Island andPincushion Island.

Flathead and trevally are making an appearance around the Cod Hole and the Bli Bli Bridge.

Mangrove jacks are firing, with the hot weather really bringing them on the bite. Dunethin Rock has been the standout spot this week.

Whiting, bream and dart have all been around Mudjimba Beach and North Shore.

Fishing the low light hours are definitely the way to go as the fish are more active around this time.

Spotted and spanish mackerel are still around in good numbers with the most productive method in catching a few being floated pilchards.

To catch a mackerel, try fishing Murphys, Gneerings and Currimundi reefs and there's a good chance you'll be battling a solid mackerel in no time.

Other reef species also on the chew include cobia, sweetlip, snapper and the odd pearl perch.
