OFFSHORE: It was a fairly ordinary week here in Noosa with wet, blustery 20 to 30 knot south easterlies dominating the Snapperoffshore scene. Thursday and Friday, in fact (when the winds dropped to 5 to 10 knots variable), were the only real fishable days as far as the outer reefs were concerned although fortunately they were also very productive. Double Island Point was worth a shot when conditions moderated and those who went the distance were rewarded with good catches of Parrot Fish, Squire, Pearl Perch, Maori Cod, Sweetlip, Spotted Mackerel and, as you can see by the accompanying photos, quality Snapper and Scarlet Sea Perch. David Sparrow from Brisbane (right) boated this 6.5kg 'Knobby' while out there on a Cougar Too 'Maxi' charter on Friday. And on the same charter, the rest of his buddies: Peter and Daniel Koch, Andy and Peter Bellas and David's brother Andrew Sparrow (pictured below), contented themselves with pulling in a handsome catch of 6kg to 10kg Scarlet Sea Perch. Closer to home; North Reef produced Spotted and Shiny Mackerel, Sweetlip, Parrot Fish, Moses Perch, Pearl Perch, Maori Cod and Spanish Mackerel while in Laguna Bay there were Mackerel Tuna moving around from Little Hall's Reef into the middle of the bay with an increasing number of Northern Bluefin Tuna in amongst them, especially around Jew Shoal (and north of there) later in the week.
Scarlet Sea Perch

ONSHORE: Dart were in almost plague proportions on the coastal surf beaches with anglers reporting difficulty getting past the voracious juveniles to target other species. Those who persevered were rewarded with Whiting and Bream.
Trevally Trevally and Whiting
In the river, Whiting and Bream were in good numbers along the Noosaville stretch and from Munna Point to the river mouth where Flathead were responding to drifted Whitebaits and live fish baits. Trevally were well spread this week with best results coming from the Woods Bays (where Berkley Power Baits also attracted a few Tailor), the Munna Point Bridge (at dawn on fly), the Noosaville stretch and up between the lakes. And it was the Gympie Terrace stretch that produced the goods for Coolum angler Evan Kelly (above left) late on Tuesday morning. Evan, who was armed with a Jarvis Walker telescopic combo, used live Beach Worms to attract the 1.5kg 'Golden' he's pictured with. And on Saturday afternoon in the same area, local lass Serene Powers (above right) hit the jackpot when she landed a 1.7kg Trevally on a live Biddy and a 250gm Whiting on a live Sand Worm. She was kitted out with a Jarvis Walker 'Junior' combo. Apart from that, Mangrove Jacks were active around the structures from Munna Point to Tewantin (flesh baits) and on the North Shore side of the Tewantin ferry where Trevally and Jewfish were also worth targeting. The freshwater scene was quiet.
