Noosa Weekly Fishing Report

as

 

The river has seen lots of bream around deeper holes and structures such as the Tewantin Marina and the boathouse. Bream eat just about anything, although prawns and chicken fillet have been producing the best results. When moving down the river more, the stretch from Tewantin to the boat house has seen some great whiting. Whiting tend to feed in the shallow water drop offs with live baits such as worms and prawns being key. There have been some ripper flathead caught around the river mouth this week. Soft plastics are the best form of fishing when targeting flathead although mullet will work also. Woods bay has seen some nice catches at dusk and dawn preferably on the top of the tide. The crabbing has been pretty good lately with the clean water present and the sand crabs around. If you’re looking at dropping a pot this week try in spots such as Lake Weyba and the Noosa Sound. The rain has now cleared and the weather is great with only some light winds, so soak up the sun and get out on the water.

Whiting are on the chew, anywhere from Woods Bay to Tewantin Marina with live baits such as worms and prawns being the best. There has been reports of mangrove jack hanging around Woods Bay, with pilchards and mullet strips producing the best results. When targeting mangrove jack, you’re best to drop a line at dusk or dawn preferably on the high tide. Bream, as always are about in the Noosa River, mainly around structures and deeper holes such as the Sound Bridge. Soft plastics have been producing some great fish in the river, including flathead and all types of trevally. Flathead in particular like to hang around shallow water drop offs. The water is clear and the sand crabs are about in the top end of the river. The wind is up for now, however is supposed to drop off for father’s day. It’s a great weekend to get out on the boat and have a fish!

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