Fish enjoy the wild weather

GONE FISHIN' with Davo's

WOW, what an interesting week of weather we've had.

Fish are still on the bite though. Up towards the mouth of the Maroochy River is where you want to be fishing with the fresh water pushing baitfish in and out with the tides.

Most of your bread and butter species like whiting, flathead and bream will be out stalking the sand flats looking for an easy meal.

Mangrove Jack love the rain also as it turns the water murky and flushes bait right up through the river system making it easy to target them.

Try gathering a few livies and fish the change of the tides in particular the top of the high tide. As the water re-seeds the baitfish are forced out from high up in mangroves where the jacks will often be waiting in ambush around deeper holes. Great spots for jacks are areas like Eudlo creek and the stretch from Coolum Creek to Dunethin Rock.

Mud crabs should definitely be out and about with this bit of rain helping to kick it up a gear. There have been a lot of bucks caught around Bli Bli Bridge and up towards the islands, fresh mullet being the major drawcard for the majority of successful crabbers. However, make sure to place your pots off to the sides of the river as it can often be very hard to see small floats in the dark.

On the beach, good reports of bream, tailor and flathead being caught on the North Shore close to the mouth and also further north towards Marcoola.

Best baits being small pillies rigged on gangs with just heavy enough sinkers to hold the bottom and slowly move along with sweep.

Snapper, sweetlip, and cobia are still being caught around the inner and outer Gneerings, and also the back end of Murphy's. The blinker has been the spot for small kingfish and livies, so don't forget to take out your bait jigs.

Local "fisho" Tyson Greinke had a great session off the outer Gneerings with a few snapper, parrot and sweetlip being the catch, all fish were taken on Davo's pillies.
