Local Haunts: In the Maroochy River it is best to look for a structure like jetty or bridge pylons, rock walls or a nice deep hole for bream. The Cod Hole, Maroochy Waters Canals, Picnic Point, Cottontree Jetties and Twin Waters Weir are all well known bream feeding grounds - high tide is usually best though hungry bream will bite any time in peak winter fishing times
