With the wind and rain we have experienced over the last week offshore anglers have had to make the best of it in the river. Woods Bay has again been firing with a great mix of trevally on offer, there have been plenty of goldens, big eyes and giant trevally around with the odd cale cale and diamond trevally in the mix.
Blue Blue micro jigs have been one of the standout lures, along with Atomic Prongs. An early morning fish has also paid off and with a good morning tide this week should see good schools of bait in the river. Poppers and walk the dog style lures are a good option for the GT’s and tailor give the Lucky Craft
Gsplash a go these poppers come in two sizes 65 and 80 mm both work extremely well and move a lot of water on the surface. As far as surface walker go the Rovers from River2sea work a treat, come in a huge range of colours and are an easy lure to get walking. We have seen good numbers of bream throughout both bays with some quality fish among them. Fish over the 30cm mark are not uncommon with some real crackers touching 40cm.
Soft plastics and blades have been producing the goods with live herring and yabbies also doing the job. Try fishing around the mooring blocks with the fish being attracted to the structure. At the River Mouth thing are pretty much the same with big bream, tailor and trevally all being accounted for!
For the anglers that prefer bait, fresh strips of mullet worked extremely well, with some quality fish being taken on live bloodworms as well. Heading upriver the area near the Tewantin boat ramp and around the Northshore Power lines has seen some quality flathead, with anglers getting fish up around the 60cm mark. Slow rolled soft plastic have been the way to go with pinks and reds like the killer tomato in the squdiges working well.
Offshore the report have been a little slow with not a lot of angler heading over the bar. Earlier last week though the Charter boats managed to get out with one group heading to Double Island Point and picking up a great feed squire, sweetlip, mowong, goatfish, gold spot wrasse, hussar, venus tusk fish, as well as pelagic like Spanish mackerel and quality spotted mackerel.
