Local Fishing Report: Wednesday 2016-12-07


Best to stay in the sheltered estuary’s today as the strong and pesky northerly’s are make conditions rough and unpleasant with northerly 15 to 20 knots, reaching up to 25 knots offshore south of Maroochydore early in the morning and seas 1 to 2 metres, decreasing below 1 metre later in the evening.. Easing back a bit tomorrow but still choppy with a northerly 15 to 20 knots and seas around 1 metre, increasing to 1.5 to 2 metres during the afternoon or evening.


Noosa: Quality flathead throughout the river particularly in the lower reaches with fish between 70 and 83cm flathead caught and released at the river mouth. Golden and giant trevally and whiting in Woods Bays. Mangrove jack, flathead and trevally in Noosa Sound and in Weyba Creek. Whiting feeding off the sand banks throughout the Noosa River. Worth putting the crab pots in the upper reaches and creeks.
