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.
Spanish Mackerel
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.
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.
'The Platforms' near river moth.
The river system was well patronised over the Anzac weekend although the lower estuary was by far the most popular. Quality whiting were biting down at the river mouth with the bigger fish going more for prawns than anything else.
Flathead were on the bite along the 'Platform' line on the runout and over in the Frying Pan where they were responding to trolled hard body lures. Also in the Frying Pan, trevally were going for whole prawn baits. Young Jessica Butler from Sydney (below) caught this 500gm 'Golden' on a whole prawn bait while fishing from a hire boat on Tuesday afternoon.
Trevally
A little further up, queenfish were chasing live prawns along the Gympie Terrace stretch and, earlier in the week at night, trevally were smashing Storm 'Chug Bug' surface poppers in the Woods Bays. Apart from that, Weyba Creek was worth a shot for whiting. Andreas Schwitter (below) boated this 500gm specimen there on Monday using a live yabby as bait.
