The Noosa Fishing Report

As at Friday April 29, 2016.

OFFSHORE: Ah well. The forecast strong (25 to 30 knot) south easterlies hit us around lunchtime on Saturday as predicted and from that point on it was all over for the offshore brigade, bar the shouting. Those anglers who could take advantage of the small window of opportunity offered by Friday and Saturday morning's light to moderate conditions, though, did well enough to tide them over for the rest of the week. At this point in time, this weekend is looking good.
Spanish Mackerel
Nobody, as far as we know, ventured beyond the middle reef belt but that was probably because they didn't have to. The Coffees were on fire as far as the pelagics were concerned with school mackerel, Spanish mackerel, spotted mackerel, longtail tuna, yellowfin tuna, sailfish (released) and striped tuna on the prowl. For the bottom bashers; moses perch, grass sweetlip, gold spot wrasse, teraglin jewfish and Maori cod were in good numbers. David Dawson from Sydney, Neville Smith from Tasmania and Enrico Canestri from New Zealand (above) boated a Spaniard each there on Friday morning's Trekka 2 charter.
Spanish Mackerel
While from Saturday morning's five hour Trekka 2 charter, we have Jeffery Pengilly from Albany Creek (pictured above) with his standout Spanish mackerel.
Spanish Mackerel Yellowfin Tuna
And above, from that same charter, Craig Pritchard from Logan boated a nice Spaniard and Mason Rapana from Logan is pictured with two yellowfin tuna.
Jewfish or Mulloway
Further south, Chardon's Reef was the spot for grass sweetlip, moses perch, venus tusk fish, jewfish or mulloway and the odd Spanish mackerel. Caleb Williamson from Whangarei, New Zealand (above) did the honours with one of the quality jewfish boated there on Friday's five hour Wild Thing 2 charter.
Jewfish or Mulloway Pearl Perch and Grass Sweetlip
While from the same charter, Jake Harrold (above) boated the standout jewie of the morning but needed a bit of help from Mark Williamson to hold it for the camera. Closer in, Sunshine Reef produced Maori cod, coral trout, sweetlip, pearl perch, snapper, brown line sea perch, venus tusk fish and the odd keeper red emperor. Caleb Digger from Thirlmere, NSW (above right) is pictured with a pearl perch and sweetlip from Saturday morning's Wild Thing 2 charter.
Coral Trout
And showing the boys how it's done, Sandra Howes from Canberra (above) boated her quality coral trout there on Friday afternoon's Wild Thing 2 charter.
