    Coolum Beach - Thursday 16/01

    Hi All

    I fished Coolum Beach Thursday morning for a couple of hours. Found a nice bit of water between the rocks and shore on the incoming tide.

    Being disorganised I did not collect any fresh bait and was using servo prawns.

    While small dart were the predominant catch I managed to get one nice whiting and a few tarwhine (not great eating in my opinion) and one bream.

    Pretty happy with the effort as I fish the beach about once a year using my 8 foot general purpose rod and reel.

    I grew up in Coolum Beach and spent many hours fishing around there. Next time you head out, go out towards the point. I don't know how many ours i spent launching my bait out as far as i could to not get much, then one day mucking around dropped a piece a mullet pretty much at my feet in a little gorge and landed a beast of a bream. That completely changed my view and approached. very small to next to no weight, big chunk of mullett or cunji off the same rocks at your feet and literally dropped it in the small gorges or valleys around the end of the point and continually got very nice fish...

    Look how clean looking that bream is the water your fishing must be really clear

    We have a location here called The Entrance, before we had big floods a few years back along the inlet beaches u could walk out 20 meters in knee high water and stand or sit on mini sand banks it use to be whiting heaven catch after catch they are great fun on really light gear
