The river has seen lots of bream around deeper holes and structures such as the boathouse and the Sound Bridge. Prawns and worms are the best baits when targeting bream although just about anything will work. There has been some nice golden trevally caught in the top end of the river, mainly around woods bay with mullet strips and pilchards being the best baits. Woods bay has seen some ripper mangrove jacks and jewfish over the past week at the top of the tide preferably at dawn or dusk. There have been some cracker flathead caught this week anywhere between the ferry crossing and Lake Cooroibah, mainly around Makepeace Island. Soft plastics are the best form of fishing when targeting flathead although prawns will work also. There has been some nice mud crabs caught in the river mainly around the dirtier waters such as Lake Cooroibah and the second ski run. The sand crabs are also still about in the top end of the river, mainly around the sandbags and frying pan area. The weather is tipped to be mostly fine with some very little light winds ahead.
Until next week good luck from the boys at O Boats!

The river mouth has been firing with good catches of trevally, flathead, bream and the odd tailor with live baits such as herring and prawns producing the best results. Weyba Creek and the back of Noosa Sound is worth a try for mangrove jack around the structures using surface lures such as poppers. When targeting Mangrove Jack your best to fish at the early hours of the morning and the late hours of the afternoon. Bream as always are surrounding structures such as the boathouse and sound bridge. The best baits for bream include prawns and worms. Both tides are fishing well but if you can avoid the bottom of the low tide. There are a few sand crabs up towards Weyba creek and the Noosa sound area with whole mullet and reef fish frames providing the best results. The weather is a bit scattered with the odd shower rolling through. The best time to get out on the water is early in the morning. Until next week good luck from the boys at O Boats.

Bream as usual are a popular fish in the Noosa river mainly around structures and deeper holes. Bream are known to eat just about anything but the best bait is prawns. Silver trevally and golden trevally are amongst the river near Woods bay and Munna point. The best time to target trevally is late at night or early in the morning using either pilchards or mullet strips. With this copious rain and the hectic weather the water is dirty and the fish are about. Moving up the river there has still been several reports of great flathead around the ferry crossing and Makepeace Island. Although bait tends to bring in the fish, soft plastics have had the best results when targeting flathead. Lake Cooriobah has also had reports of great golden trevally, silver trevally, flathead and bream. This week has a few forecasted showers although mostly sunny. It’s a great time to escape the wind and drop a line. It’s a great time to get a crab pot in the water as well with the mud crabs on the move.

Until next week good luck from the boys at O Boats.
