Moonbow heading for the bar. June 2014.
OFFSHORE: Although we had a bit of a blustery start to the week, the cool 20 knot southerlies eased off after a couple of days and from Thursday on it was pretty much as good as it gets. And then it got better, with the swell dropping away from the 1.0m-1.2m mark to a more modest 0.5m before the weekend!
Grass Sweetlip
The only feedback from the outer reefs this week was from Double Island Point where quality snapper, the odd Spaniard and good size cobia were on the bite. Most boaties, though, limited their travels to the middle reef belt and although there weren't many standouts reported, there were plenty of average size reefies on the chew. North Reef was by far the most popular destination with many anglers hoping to continue targeting the mackerel that were well and truly on the bite there (and in still in good numbers) before the the weather turned a bit ordinary last weekend. Unfortunately it wasn't to be, with just a few shiny mackerel responding to the berley. Other species on the bite out that way, and at 'The Hill', were: squire, pearl perch, moses perch, gold spot cod, sweetlip, Maori cod and venus tusk fish. Scott McKenna, above, is pictured with a 3kg+ grass sweetlip that he nailed at North on a butterflied yakka on Friday night.
Pearl Perch and Moses Perch
Chicko Vella from Davo's Tackle World took his mate Paris Hawkins (above) out to Chardon's Reef for a fish around lunchtime yesterday and got onto a few cobia and estuary cod, not to mention some quality pearl perch and moses perch. Paris is happily posing with the double header he boated on the day.
Spanish Mackerel
We just didn't have room for all of the offshore photos this week. To view the other standouts, just click on the photo montage directly below:

ONSHORE: The Noosa North Shore was the spot for lots of average size dart and some elbow slapper whiting this week. The surf gutters either side of Teewah township produced the better quality fish and most were taken on locally harvested pipi baits. Twelve year old Riley Maxworthy from Brisbane (below) caught his elbow slapping 36cm whiting on a pipi bait just north of Teewah on Saturday. It was the day's standout for him apart from a few small dart.
