The Noosa Fishing Report

As at Monday December 7, 2015.
Brought to you by... Davo's Tackle World Noosa
OFFSHORE: With half the week (including the weekend) lost to strong 20 to 25 knot south easterlies and associated 2m+ seas and swell, it was a case of making hay while the sun shone. On the plus side, the fishable days were as good as they get for this time of the year and the bar crossing straight forward.
Pearl Perch
Conditions on Tuesday were excellent with 5 knot northerly winds, little or no swell and just a slight current. Under the circumstances, Cougar One opted for The Barwon Banks where they got onto some good pearl perch, venus tusk fish, moses perch, hussar and frying pan snapper. They also dropped a good mahi mahi )dolphin fish) at the side of the boat. Dave Hall from Port Macquarie (above) was happy to pose with a thumper pearlie from that full day charter.
Pearl Perch
There were also reports of the odd knobby snapper being boated out that way but nothing weighed in at Davo's. Closer in along the middle reef belt, North Reef continued to reward the faithful with good numbers of moses perch, venus tusk fish, mowong, sweetlip, trag jew, snapper, Maori cod, sea bream, gold spot cod and pearl perch. Emma Clark from Horsham, Victoria (above) is pictured with a couple of the pearlies boated there on Tuesday's Trekka 2 charter.
Gold Spot Cod Maori Cod
And above, from that same half day charter, we have Jason Matthews from Horsham in Victoria (left) with a good eating size gold spot cod and Sam Scott from Brisbane with a nice Maori cod. Further south, Chardon's Reef was the spot for hussar, squire, sea bream, rosy jobfish, venus tusk fish and Maori cod.
Northern Bluefin or Longtail Tuna
When the spotties and Spaniards came on the bite last week the consensus was that the season had got under way with a bang. Unfortunately, it fizzed out rather than exploded this week with just the odd silver flash spotted amongst the bait schools on the middle reef belt. Sunshine Reef turned out to be a better option, however, with mahi mahi and spotted mackerel going for trolled lures, live baits and pilchard or yakka floaters. Spanish mackerel were also amongst them but still not in large numbers. River2Sea Killer Vib bibless lures worked well on those bigger fish. In Laguna Bay, Jew Shoal was pretty quiet with just the odd snapper reported. Big Hall's Reef was a bit more lively for the pelagics with juvenile black marlin caught and released and northern bluefin tuna on the prowl. Richard James from Sunshine Beach (above) boated his 12kg longtail at Big Hall's on Tuesday morning, using a live yakka as his draw card. It was a quality capture, considering Richard was by himself, and certainly well deserving of this week's $50.00 Davo's Fish of the Week prize.
