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.
