Wilson SureCatch and Live Fibre
OFFSHORE: The offshore scene was a bit patchy this week with strong northerlies and 2m to 3m seas (from Wednesday through till Friday) shutting the gate on outside excursions, as did today's strong, blustery south easterly. Between the blows, fortunately, we had a weekend blessed by light to moderate variable northerlies and calm conditions, and even though the fishing wasn't as productive as hoped for, most anglers who put in the time came home with a decent feed.
Scarlet Sea Perch Snapper
Squire and Moses Perch were common to the visited reefs. In addition, North Reef 'Wide' produced Jewfish, Samson Fish, Pearl Perch and Snapper while on North Reef proper the standouts were Teraglin Jewfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Estuary Cod and, as you can see by the photos above, Scarlet Sea Perch and Snapper. Matt Tanis from Mudjimba (above left) boated the 4.8kg 'Scarlet' he's posing with while out here on Saturday on a full day Cougar Too charter. He was armed with a Wilson Live Fibre rod and an Alvey 825C reel loaded with 30lb line. And John the 'Witchdoctor' from Noosa (above right) was there on Cougar Too at the beginning of the week when the 5kg 'Knobby' he's pictured with monstered his Pilchard bait. He was kitted out with a Silstar Crystal Tip rod and a Shimano TLD20 reel loaded with 8kg line. Apart from that, Sunshine Reef was good for the common species mentioned while Hall's Reef yielded quality Spotted Mackerel.

ONSHORE: The North Shore continued to produce a few good Tailor although best results came from either down towards the river mouth or up at the top end. The area around Teewah was another producer with Whiting, and as you an see by the photo below left, quality Bream and Tarwhine on the bite. Young Zakry McClean had a ripper time there yesterday morning with his standouts being the 1kg Bream and 1.2kg Tarwhine he's posing with. He was armed with a threadline surf combo loaded with 8lb line. His bait? Prawn on a No.6 longshank hook. Whiting were also active around the river mouth groyne, Bream were on the chew at Dolphin Point and, further south, Marcus Beach was the spot for Dart.
Bream and Tarwhine Trevally
In the river, Flathead were again a high profile target with the better returns coming from up around Harbourtown, near Ricky Richardo's in the outer Woods Bay, the Culgoa/Munna Point stretch (where some thumper Trevally were busting up gear and Whiting were also in good numbers) and down around the river mouth where Tailor and, as you can see by the photo above right, quality Trevally were on the bite. Local angler Oscar Giammichele was down there fishing from the river bank yesterday morning when his whole Pilchard bait was monstered by the 4.5kg 'Golden' he's pictured with. Apart from that, the mouth of Lake Cooroibah was a good option for the odd school Jewfish. There were no freshwater reports.
