sand-whiting-sillago-ciliata

Name: Sand Whiting

Scientific Name: Sillago Cilliata

Minimum Size: 23cm

Bag Limit: combined bag limit of 30 (all whiting species except trumpeter whiting).

Best Bait: Sand Worms, Blood Worms and Yabbies

Habitat: coastal beaches, sandbars and surf zones, bays, estuaries and coastal lakes.

Local Haunts: In the Maroochy River sand whiting are prolific along mud-lined banks near Twin Waters (The Black Bank), Godfreys Road and in both Eudlo and Petrie Creek. They also frequent in lessor numbers off the bank at the Cod Hole, Maroochy Waters Canals, Picnic Point, Cottontree Jetties and Bli Bli's Muller Park area. A falling to low tide is usually best though as the whiting forage on banks covered by shallow slow moving water.
