Scott Hillier reveals his latest fishing tips

Looks like there’s plenty of wind forecast for the weekend, so for those keen to wet a line rivers and creeks will be the best option.

Still pretty good run in the tide now on the back of the full moon, so if you can find a nice spot out of the breeze there should be a few fish to he found.

How to catch trevally or queenfish

The Maroochy and Noosa rivers continue to produce smaller trevally and queenies on the run in tide early morning.

Plastics and poppers are the go-to-methods as this water temperature starts to jump up a little. Flatheads are becoming more active.

Pumicestone Passage and Mooloolah River have seen a few crackers over the past few days.

Trolling small hard body lures along the sand drop offs during the run out tide is when most fish are being caught.

Also try soft plastics worked along the same edges.

Whiting are another species starting to become more active with a handful taken in most rivers by those soaking live yabbies.

Still a few bream hanging around the rock walls and marinas, although they are staring to slow up a little.

I’d throw a few crab pots in with a few muddies being taken well up stream.

Good luck if you wet a line.
