OFFSHORE: Ah well, fresh to strong south easterlies got the week off to a dismal start and pretty much made offshore a no go until Friday morning. From then on, however, it was a green light for the offshore brigade and those who managed to get time off and get out over the bar reported more activity from the bottom dwellers than has been the case recently.
Scarlet Sea Perch
Pearl Perch and Moses Perch were the common catch along the middle reef belt, which was about as far as anyone cared to venture this week. In addition to those species, North Reef produced Snapper, Northern Bluefin Tuna, Parrot Fish and Coral Bream while at Chardon's Reef the extras were Scarlet Sea Perch, Snapper, Squire, Maori Cod and Parrot.

Noosa Plasterers held their staff Christmas outing on Cougar Too on Friday, treating their work crew to a full day at Chardon's Reef where, as you can see by the photos above, they did well on the reefies. 'Skip' (top photo) came up with the standout of the trip when he boated the 6kg+ Scarlet Sea Perch he's posing with while Luke and Mick did well on the Maori Cod and Pearl Perch. Closer in at Sunshine Reef the bonus species were Sweetlip and Mowong.

ONSHORE: Conditions on the coastal surf beaches improved during the second half of the week as the winds dropped although most reports of any note were of quality Whiting at Sunshine Beach and school Jewfish at South Peregian.

The river was very quiet (for a change) with the blustery south easterlies making the exposed areas rather unpleasant earlier in the week. As conditions improved towards the weekend, however, there was a bit more activity both of the human and fishy kind. The Woods Bays fired up over the last couple of days of the week with quality Tailor (2kg+ est.) responding well to surface poppers at dawn and dusk. 'The Bays' also produced the odd Flathead while further upriver at Harbourtown, Mangrove Jacks were hammering the Garfish schools and taking soft plastics that resembled that species. Last but not least, Bream and Queenfish were active in Noosa Waters with the bridge areas working best.

Oh, and if you haven't already checked it out, the latest Noosa River Bar crossing photo was posted last Wednesday.
