GETTING OUT:

THOSE northerly winds continued to give the Fraser Coast a bit of a battering over the past week, however it's hard to keep a diehard fisho away from the water. Let's take a look at the report.

High on this week's hit list was Kauri Creek which has been producing mangrove jack, estuary cod, grunter and summer whiting, along with quality sand crabs in numbers.

Monster flathead and summer whiting have been on the bite in Shark Inlet and Butha, Poona and Tuan creeks have all reported threadfin salmon, mangrove jack, bream, whiting and flathead.

The Mary River continues to impress with anglers landing threadfin salmon, barramundi and silver bream at the Lamington Bridge, along with river jew in numbers.

Monster threadfin salmon have been landed between Walkers Point and River Heads, and grunter, flathead and whiting closer towards the mouth.

Quality flathead and summer whiting are on the bite at Toogoom and the Burrum River continues to keep anglers happy with barramundi, threadfin salmon, mangrove jack and flathead.
