After the busy school holiday period, fishing on the coast has continued to deliver great conditions and big catches for local fishos. With the exception of some rain and windy patches, most local spots have been perfect with temperatures cooling slightly and waters finally clearing after recent flooding. 

Offshore fishing finally looks to be improving, with Tuna, Cobia and Mackerel in good supply. Snapper, Pearl Perch and Grassy Sweetlip have also been reported in recent catches. 

Local rivers are delivering good catches of Flathead and the occasional Mangrove Jack at night. Whiting are being caught in good numbers around Chambers Island. Fresh bait seems to be the winner still, but soft plastics are working well too in most areas. 
Live worms are prime fresh bait for fishing, but unfortunately are hard to source on the Sunshine Coast. We were lucky enough to secure live worm tanks from Hooked On Angling and Outdoors that recently closed in Tewantin. Our wormer has been working hard and we are excited to now be stocking live worms in our Bli Bli store. 
Drop in and see us at 311 David Low Way, Bli Bli or have a look at our range online at
