ESTUARY – flathead, flatties, duskys, shovel heads what ever you wanna call them it hasnt been hard cathing these fish in most of our estuary’s as late. plastics trolled lures and drifted baits such as hearing etc have been working a treat. mainly down in the lower reaches there has been more activity. the water seems to be clearing up pretty quickly. some good whiting on worms and yabbies between chambers island and marrochy river mouth. school jew at night from the motorway bridge. mud crabs in the upper reaches and sandies in the lower parts. young Jimmy went for a fish with Chris on Saturday and Chris got smoked up the mooloolah on what was reported as a jack. i reckon it was a stingray personally but………………. they did get into some trevally and flathead around kawana island and they also got 2 school jew on jackall tranzams. noosa river mouth there has been good flathead and whiting with the jacks on the chew up between the lakes on live bait at night.
