Still plenty of mangrove jack

WE ARE still seeing lots of mangrove jack being caught and a lot of captures are happening during the daylight hours.

Deep diving lures and well presented baits fished in the deeper parts of the river are getting most of the fish.

Trevally are making their presence known, taking just about anything you throw at them. Their numbers will increase as the weather cools and you can have a ball experimenting with all types of lures and retrieve techniques.

The run of large whiting is still in full swing and the number one bait is live yabbies.

Those fishos that have been able to get out and do some reef fishing or trolling, have been well rewarded.

Coral trout are still being caught at Sunshine Reef and if you troll along the outside edge of the reef, there are still some Spanish mackerel to be found. North Reef has been fishing well for snapper up to 6kg and in among them have been a few Cobia.

If you want to try something different, go to the inside of North Reef where there is sand and cast and retrieve a lure call Dr Evil.

If you are using 20lb braid, this lure will get down to about 10m and snapper can't resist it. Call into Davo's and we will show you all about them.

The beaches are producing good whiting, bream and the odd tailor. The north shore stretch above the third cutting is worth a look and down on the northern end of Sunrise Beach is also worth considering.

Davo's fish of the week went to Jonah Barwick for his great capture of a 6kg snapper.

For your chance to win a $50 gift voucher, simply bring your catch into Davo's for a photo.

Don't forget the Noosa River To Reef Family Fishing Classic, which will be held on June 1-3.

There is a $27,000 boat, motor and trailer package up for grabs plus loads of other prizes and giveaways.

Call into Davo's Compleat Angler for the entry form and if you enter before May 15, you go in the draw to win an esky full of fishing gear.
