OFFSHORE: With 15 to 20 knot variable easterlies
and a lot of slop around the reefs the first half of the week was less
than inspiring for anyone who wanted to fish outside the relative shelter
of Laguna Bay. Fortunately the weekend proved to be a lot more inviting
and although the swell was still around it was no real deterrent to those
wanting to wet a line.
Noosa Blue Water Charters did a run to Double Island Point on Saturday and during the full day excursion boated squire, yellowfin tuna, sweetlip and Spanish mackerel. Unfortunately they left the camera behind so we have no photos.
A little closer to home, North Reef fired well, producing snapper, sweetlip and plenty of quality Spanish mackerel while Sunshine Reef was the spot for pearl perch, coral trout and a few Spanish mackerel. Michael Fuchs from Victoria (above) was out at Sunshine Reef on King Kong on Friday and was more than happy with the 7kg Spaniard he's posing with.
And on the same charter, Darryl Lazzaro from Geelong (below) hit the jackpot with this very colourful 3.5kg coral trout.
Laguna Bay held the interest of the pelagics all week and, being a little more sheltered, was an option for those boaties prepared to put up with the (at times) slightly sloppy conditions. The Halls' Reef stretch was occupied by schools of (mostly) mackerel tuna while the spotties were on the bite about a klick outside the bar and along the shark net line.
ONSHORE: The North Shore
stretch was well pastronised over the weekend and the feedback was that
whiting and bream were in good numbers, especially about 5km's north of
Teewah where tarwhine and quality dart were also active. Chopper tailor
were on the bite up around Freshwater while the bigger specimens were
found down at the river mouth end of Teewah Beach. Over on the east side,
Sunrise Beach produced dart and flathead while Nth Peregian yielded whiting.
