OFFSHORE: With a just couple of days of light to moderate (5 to 15 knot) southerlies earlier in the week there was only a small window of opportunity for the offshore boys to get the runs on the board. The forecast after that was for strong 20-25 knot+ southerlies and from Thursday afternoon onwards that's exactly what we got. The swell was quite moderate though, and while the weather held, a number of boats headed for the outer reefs while they still had the chance.
Spangled Emperor and Snapper
Noosa Blue Water Charters did a run out wide to the Barwon Banks and came back with plenty of average size snapper, pearl perch, moses perch, venus tusk fish, gold spot wrasse and hussar. The bigger fish were taken on overnighters with good Knobbies, Pearlies and Kingies at 'The Hards' and 'The Banks'.
North Reef was a better option for the smaller boats and the shorter charters, producing moses perch, trag jew, cod, Maori cod, venus tusk fish and, as per above, spangled emperor and snapper to 3.0kg. John and Daniel Killalea from Newcastle got their fish on a half day Trekka 2 charter on Thursday morning.
Cod Snapper
And on a 3/4 day Trekka 2 charter to North Reef the day before, Ben Oakley from Redland Bay (above left) boated the 5.5kg gold spot cod he's posing with.
Also on the middle reef belt, Chardon's Reef was the spot for sweetlip, estuary cod, Maori cod, pearl perch, scarlet sea perch, mowong and snapper to 4kg. Local lad Will Cels (above right) fished there on Tuesday with Chicko Vella and his son Jet and is pictured with one of the snapper they boated on the day.
Closer in, Sunshine Reef produced snapper to 2.5kg, pearl perch, moses perch, Maori cod and estuary cod while mack tuna were on the bite at Hall's Reef.
