Anglers stay in Mary River and Sandy Strait with good reason
WELL the Fraser Coast has been hammered by those big south easterly winds but there's some good weather just around the corner and the fish are still on the bite.
Let's check out this week's fishing report.
It'll take more than gale force winds to stop our die-hard fisho's.
Many anglers are sticking in close throughout the Mary River and Great Sandy Strait and for good reason.
There have been a surprising amount of fish being landed from a kilo bream to 10kg threadfin salmon.
The Beaver Rock to River Heads stretch has been very popular with boaties gathering live bait and trying their hand at stopping a salmon or barra.
Small herring or prawns have been doing the trick.
With last Friday's full moon there has been a lot more water turn and run which have the muddies on the move in the creeks and estuary.
Sandies are running a-muck over the sand flats.
Prawns of varied size have been caught around Turkey Straits and Germen Creek.
If your chasing some reef fish the bombies in the Strait have been keeping anglers fed with mixed bags of decent-size estuary cod, blackall, parrot and grunter.
