Fishing through the Great Sandy Strait has been on fire

THE windy weather has subsided just in the nick of time for our holiday-makers.

The Easter long weekend was great and last week was no different.

Let's check out this week's fishing report.

Well-known spots on the outskirts of the Strait have been the go.

Beaver Rock to River Heads is still the place to be to land a barramundi, threadfin salmon, grunter or cod.

In the shallower water your bread and butter fish are being caught in good numbers as well.

Hervey Bay waters are still producing good catches of our pelagic species like tuna, GT's and a huge variety of macies, with some huge schools holding around Kingfisher Bay.

Fishing through the Great Sandy Strait has been on fire with anglers targeting flathead on hard body and soft plastic lures on the sand flats on the making tide.

Winter whiting are on the bite between Poona and Tinnanbar on the drift in the deep water.

Large estuary cod, grassy sweetlip and blackall have been landed in the deep hole out the front of Kauri Creek.

Both grounds inside and outside the Wide Bay Bar are loaded with fish including spanish, greys, spotties and schoolies.

Threadfin salmon and barra are working the top of the ledge at Fig Tree on the making tide.

Flicking soft plastic lures has been the preferred weapon of choice when targeting both species at this location.
