OFFSHORE: Although moderate to fresh (15
to 20 knot+) south easterlies dominated earlier the week it was all go
from Friday onwards with light to moderate winds and a nominal 1.2m-1.5m
swell setting the scene for a long fishing weekend.
Please Note: An interim snapper closure is in place from February 15, 2011 to March 31, 2011. Snapper, pearl perch and teraglin jewfish cannot be taken in any Queensland east coast waters during this six week period.
ONSHORE: The coastal beaches were fairly quiet. On the North Shore most of the activity came from the beach gutters north of Teewah where dart, whiting, the odd chopper tailor and a few quality bream were on the bite.
Over on the east side the only reports were from Castaways and Marcus beaches where dart (in numbers), bream and small (just legal) whiting were active.
In the estuary, bream and flathead were in good numbers from Lake Cooroibah to Munna Beach and, as you can see by the photo on the right, around the mouth of Weyba Creek.
Peter Deffurn was working that part of Noosa Sound on Thursday when his live yabby bait was taken by the 1.5kg 'Lizard' he's pictured with.
And at the Munna Point Bridge on Friday night, Tewantin angler Ezy Kelly (below) landed a few small tailor and bream plus the two nice 1.7kg and 2.4kg mangrove jacks he's pictured with. He was using live garfish and biddies as his draw card.
Trevally were responding well to surface poppers around dawn and dusk in the Woods Bays while at night, mangrove jacks were going for the ever faithful Gladiator 'Slim Jim' lures.
