As at Monday June 4, 2007

OFFSHORE: Weatherwise it was a little patchy on the offshore scene with the south easterlies waxing and waning as the week progressed. The fishing, sadly, was pretty much on par with the weather with many anglers extending their stay on Spanish Mackerelthe reefs to make their trip offshore worthwhile.
Parrot Fish and Moses Perch were pretty much the common species caught at the visited reefs.
In addition, North Reef produced Mahi Mahi, Shiny Mackerel, Jewfish, Pearl Perch, Snapper, Gold Spot Wrasse and Coral Trout while at 'The Coffees' the extras were Squire, Hussar, Mowong and Sweetlip.
Closer in at Sunshine Reef the bonus species were Coral Trout and Squire.
Typically, with the full moon phase peaking on Friday, the fish were feeding better in the afternoon sessions. Towards the weekend, however, rain clouds dulled out the full effect of the big moon and, as a result, there were still a few pelagics and reef fish on the bite in Whitingthe morning.
Local yak angler James Grant (above right) took advantage of the overcast conditions and paddled out over Jew Shoal on Friday morning. Trolling a Garfish on a Davo's Spaniard Special back towards Granite Bay his bait attracted the attention of the nice little 4kg Spaniard he's posing with in the photo.
James was armed with a Daiwa Interline rod and a Shimano TLD5 reel loaded with 30lb braid.

ONSHORE: The coastal surf beaches were a tad quiet this week with the only reports from the North Shore coming from up around the Double Island Point rocks where big Trevally and even the odd Spanish Mackerel were on the bite. Over on the east side all the action was at Marcus and Peregian beaches with quality Whiting, Dart and Bream being of good size if not necessarily good numbers.
TailorIn the river, Whiting were the bread and butter species this week with best results coming from down at the river mouth on the run-out tide (along with the odd Tailor), in Weyba Creek on the run-in tide (together with Flathead on soft plastics) and, as per the photo above right, along the Noosaville stretch. Brisbane visitor Richard Blomfield boated the 650gm elbow slapper he's pictured with on Tuesday afternoon. He was armed with an Okuma estuary outfit loaded with 3kg line. His bait? Live Davo's Worms. He also boated 2 Javelin Fish and four Bream.
The Woods Bays weren't a bad option for Bream and the odd quality Tailor as Mitchell Pooler (right) found much to his delight. Mitchell was floating out Squid baits from his 4m tinnie on Thursday morning when the 2.5kg Greenback he's holding came to the party. Apart from that, Flathead were active up around Tewantin (as were Hairtail, Golden Perch or YellowbellyBream Trevally and Mud Crabs), at the Tewantin ferry crossing (along with Bream) and were also chasing lures just inside the mouth of Lake Cooroibah.
On the freshwater scene, there were Bass and Saratoga on the bite in the Kingham Arm and around the main basin at Borumba Dam while at Lake MacDonald the resident Bass (to 48cm) were responding well to soft plastics from Gazebo Bay to Three Ways. There were also a few Bass chasing live Worms (as were Saratoga) not far from the boat ramp while along the 'Bubble Trail' Jackalls were getting most of the attention from the Bass and, as you can see by the photo above, Golden Perch. Eleven year old Callum Munro hit the jackpot there on Thursday afternoon when he outfished his dad, catching and releasing a number of small Bass and this 55cm 'Yellowbelly'. He was armed with a Mojiko Plastix rod and a Shimano Cruxis 200 baitcast reel loaded with 30lb PE braid.
