PAGE ONE - OFFSHORE REPORT
|Brought to you by...|
| OFFSHORE: It was
a fairly average week on the offshore scene. There weren't any unfishable
days but the light to moderate variable southerlies gave way to gusty, moderate
to fresh winds on the odd day. The bar crossing was also a bit sloppy at
times but those who waited patiently for the flat spot crossed ok.
Nobody ventured beyond the middle reef belt as far as we know. Chardon's Reef, which was relatively quiet, produced pearl perch, as did North Reef but with the added bonus there of snapper to 4kg, moses perch, sweetlip, teraglin jewfish, venus tusk fish, estuary cod, mulloway, amberjack and scarlet sea perch.
|With the week's catch consisting of mostly average
size fish, the 14.5kg mulloway and 23kg amberjack that Tony White (above
left) weighed in at Davo's
on Wednesday morning caused quite a stir. Tony fished what he called 'a
lump' just of North Reef on Tuesday night and, using pilchards and flesh
baits on a handline, came back with these two thumper fish. His outstanding
solo achievement also won him this week's $50.00 Davo's
Fish of the Week prize.
Sunshine Reef was a good option on the blustery days. Snapper, sweetlip, venus tusk fish, and striped sea perch featured on the capture list but pearl perch were in excellent numbers. Harry (above right) is pictured with one of the many, many pearlies boated there on Cougar One's Wednesday morning charter.
Chris 'Fella' Arnold from Noosa River Fishing Safaris (above) took advantage of a quiet day on Monday and did a run to Sunshine Reef where he boated sweetlip, venus tusk fish and four snapper, as per the photo above. In Laguna Bay, the only reports were from Jew Shoal where snapper were on the bite.
