Winds will reach up to 20 knots offshore early in the morning and swing from southerly to southeasterly in the late afternoon. Seas will decrease to 1 metre during the morning and the 1.5 to 2 metre southeasterly swell will decrease by half a metre during the afternoon. The chance of rain is greatly reduced and we should be in for a mostly sunny afternoon. Conditions should further ease tomorrow, so getting offshore is looking possible again.
Noosa: Chopper tailor and whiting along the northern beaches. Plenty of bream, flathead and trevally throughout the river, in places like the river mouth, Noosa Sound, Weyba Creek, Noosaville and Tewantin. Sand whiting on the banks in the lower reaches of the river. Try for mangrove jack along the Tewantin and Noosaville stretches and there should be some muddies and sandies moving around.
Maroochydore: There's still plenty of trevally in the river, particularly around the bridges. Bream and flathead in the Cod Hole and Petrie Creek. A few whiting on the banks between Chambers and Goat Island. Mud crabs in the creeks and upper reaches of the river.
Kawana: Mud crabs throughout the river. Sand crabs towards the river mouth. Bream around the moorings and along La Balsa Park. Have a go for mangrove jack in Mountain Creek and around McKenzies Bridge.
Caloundra: Grunter bream off the boardwalk, around Military Jetty and in the canals. Flathead around the coastguard jetty. Sand whiting on the banks near the Power Boat Club. Sand and mud crabs throughout the passage.
