| OFFSHORE: It was
a dud one as far as the offshore scene was concerned. There was a small
window of opportunity at the start of the week when light to moderate (5
to 15 knot) east south easterlies prevailed, but then it all come to a grinding
halt as fresh to strong south easterlies barrelled in on Wednesday. While
the going was good (all two days of it) the swell was a manageable 1.5 metres,
the bar was sloppy but crossable and the current on the exposed reefs was
slight and from the north. Laguna Bay, of course, was fishable (even when
the exposed reefs were not) although the only species reported on the bite
were mack tuna and longtail tuna, working the bait schools around the shark
nets and around Granite Bay. The gannets were an occupational hazard there.
The bait schools were few and far between on Sunshine Reef and the fishing was slow, with just the odd longtail in the upper levels and sweetlip, venus tusk fish and striped sea perch down deep. Mulloway were active on Chardon's Reef (as were lots of undersize red emperor) and on North Reef but with the added bonus there of sweetlip, moses perch, coral bream, cobia, scarlet sea perch and pearl perch. The Noosa Heads Surf Club social group fished 'North' on Cougar One on Tuesday and came back with a good mixed bag, although the standouts from the half day charter were the quality mulloway that Brayden Robinson and Jason Mills (above) boated. Their smiles said it all and helped them win this week's $50.00 Davo's Fish of the Week prize as well.
And from that same group charter we have Jane and Matt Franich (above) with a couple of cobia and Steven Thynne (below left) with a scarlet sea perch.
|Couldn't get away without doing the 'group' shot
(above right) but it was the least I could do considering they'd filled
me up with barbecued sausage sangers.
Wild Thing 2 fished Double Island Point on Tuesday and came back with squire, sweetlip, Maori cod, longtail tuna, mowong, goatfish, gold spot wrasse, hussar, venus tusk fish, a couple of Spanish mackerel and a bin load of quality spotted mackerel. As you can see by the photo above, it was a good day.
|Skipper Paul Glover reported excellent conditions there with a light north west current and an almost total glass-out on the water. From that same full charter we have Julie Morin from Paris, above, doing it in style while posing with a Maori cod. And deckie Kyle, above, pictured with a very small longtail tuna.|
