|OFFSHORE: Apart from
a 20 knot southerly blow on Friday and Saturday, conditions were pretty
good as far as the offshore scene was concerned. The swell was a moderate
0.75m to 1.0m, the bar held no surprises and best of all, the pelagics (tuna,
cobia and mackerel) were still well and truly on the bite.
Trekka 2 fished Chardon's Wide on Tuesday for pearl perch, venus tusk fish, mowong, squire, hussar and amberjack. The current was running hard but all was good once they got some extra lead on. Rob Nield from Maroochydore (above) is pictured with a quality amberjack from that three quarter day charter.
Closer in, North Reef was the spot for sweetlip, moses perch, coral bream, yellowfin tuna, spotted mackerel, Spanish mackerel and venus tusk fish. Joshua Brown from Brisbane and Mark Hines from Gladstone (above) got into the Spanish mackerel out there on Tuesday morning's half day Wild Thing 2 charter.
And Cougar One fished Massoud's Reef on Sunday for sweetlip, squire, moses perch and cobia. Geoff King (above) boated an 8kg cobia on that charter.
Sunshine Reef really fired up this week with sweetlip, coral trout, coronation trout, moses perch, snapper, spotted mackerel, Spanish mackerel, pearl perch, venus tusk fish, yellowfin tuna, longtail tuna and mackerel tuna all on the bite. Phew! That was a mouthful! Grant Saveall and his son Jack from Kempsey in New South Wales (above) are pictured with a couple of very colourful coral trout which they boated on Sunday morning's half day Wild Thing 2 charter.
Shane and Julie Hackett's family and friends had a ball in Laguna Bay and out on Sunshine Reef this week. They boated spotted mackerel, longtail tuna, Spanish mackerel, mahi mahi (out wide) and yellowfin tuna. Julie kept us updated with their endeavours, posting photos almost very day and keeping us all entertained with their exploits. Her efforts, and their standout yellowfin and Spaniard (above) won them this week's $50.00 Davo's Fish of the Week prize.
The tuna were on the boil just off the headland and on the prowl in Alexandria Bay. Local yak angler John Burns (above) was trolling a Laser Pro 120 hard body lure behind his kayak this morning when it was monstered by this 11kg northern bluefin tuna. He was about 200 metres out from 'A' Bay at the time.
As you can see by the photo, John arrived at Davo's Tackle World with his own cheer squad in the form of his daughter Ruby (right) and her friend Skye.
We didn't have room for all of the offshore photos but if you click on any of the small photographs directly below, you can view the extra pix in a slideshow.
