OFFSHORE: Light to moderate (10 to 15 knot) variable winds dominated the offshore scene this week with a bit of rain in the mix to dampen things down a bit. Friday and Saturday were a tad blustery but still quite fishable. There were some solid, dumping 1.2m+ sets coming in over the bar in the latter half of the week that deserved respect and those boaties who got their timing wrong had to bail a bit of water out once they reached the calmer waters of the bay.
Cobia
Noosa Blue Water Charters did a run to the Barwon Banks on Friday. A strong current from the north made it a bit hard to fish but they still came back with gold spot wrasse, snapper, pearl perch, hussar, red throat emperor, moses perch, venus tusk fish and cobia. Jake Birch from Sunshine Beach did well on the full day charter, boating the 8kg cobia he's pictured with above and the 4kg venus tusk fish that his father Rusty is happily posing with below.
Venus Tusk Fish
Along the middle reef belt, The Coffees, Massoud's and Chardon's Reefs were good for snapper, as was North Reef but with the added bonus of pearl perch, sweetlip, moses perch, Maori cod, teraglin jewfish and the odd standout Knobby like the 5kg specimen that Eric Kilpatrick (below) boated there on Thursday.
Snapper
Sunshine Wide was the spot for snapper on soft plastics while closer in the catch was Maori cod, squire, estuary cod, sweetlip, mowong and moses perch.
Coral Trout
Sunshine Reef also produced the odd coral trout. Young Ben Stewart (above) is pictured with a 3kg+ fish which was boated on Tuesday's Trekka 2 charter.
