Estuaries and Beaches

Noosa: Good flathead and bream around the river mouth and some nice diamond and golden trevally at the Woods Bays. Noosaville has had good whiting and flathead with the bream around the structures. Tewantin and Cooroibah has a few good fish on the bite.

Maroochydore: Try for tailor bream, trevally and jew at night from the river mouth the and at the Cod Hole and upstream to Bli Bli. Quality flathead around the Bli Bli area and in the mouth of Eudlo Creek. Mangrove jack showing up and trevally in Petrie Creek. Quality whiting in the lower river.

Mooloolaba: Bream, the odd tailor and golden trevally from the boat moorings. Whiting from the flats above McKenzies Bridge. Bream and mangrove jack at night around McKenzies Bridge. Bream, tailor and jew at night off the rocks at Point Cartwright.

Caloundra: Whiting, bream and still a few tailor in the gutters along the beaches from the rocky headland and tip of Bribie. Flathead from the skids. Jacks are showing up so its worth trying the snaggy or structured areas for mangrove jack throughout the creeks and Passage.
