OFFSHORE: The offshore scene was pretty ordinary this week with moderate to fresh (15-20 knot) southerlies and a sloppy 2m+ swell making things a tad uncomfortable on the local reefs. On a few days, though, when the winds dropped below the 15 knot mark, a few hardy souls and some of the bigger boats gave it a go with some quite good results. There were no standouts reported but Trekka 2 got onto snapper (to 2.5kg) in healthy numbers at Arkwright Shoal, cod at Halls Reef and pearl perch at Sunshine Reef. Other anglers visiting Sunshine Reef listed coral trout and grass sweetlip as their standouts. Cougar One fished a little further out at North Reef on Friday and did well on snapper (to 3kg), pearl perch, moses perch, Maori cod, greasy cod and venus tusk fish.

|ONSHORE: The coastal surf beaches copped a bit of a hammering over the last week or so and there weren't too many beach anglers interested in trying their luck. The North Shore in particular showed the effects of the big tides and dumping shore break with low tide giving only just passable beach access.|
|The cool southerlies and sporadic rain (which came on heavy at times) made conditions on the water in the estuary system a tad uncomfortable on some days but it was still quite fishable. Bream, tarwhine and flathead were going for floated and drifted baits at the river mouth during the day while tailor were taken on cast metal slug lures there around dawn and dusk. Michelle King from Melbourne (above left) is posing with a 35cm bream she caught at the river mouth while on a Noosa River Fishing Safari. And skipper Chris Arnold (above right) is pictured with a small mangrove jack released on the same charter.|
|The Woods Bays fired very well this week, producing bream, hairtail and tailor plus GT's, big-eye, tea leaf, golden and cale cale trevally. Chris Locke from Davo's Compleat Angler (above left) fished there yesterday and caught a number of trevs (including a cale cale) on Gladiator Prawn soft plastics. And his buddy Izaiah Schwerin (above right) nailed a couple of chopper tailor, plus a 60cm flathead on a River2Sea Flexi Babe. Hairtail were also taken in the Munna Point Bridge area (as were quality flathead), the Gympie Terrace stretch was good for bream and whiting while flathead were on the bite at Lake Cooroibah.|
