OFFSHORE: On paper the offshore scene didn't look too bad at all this week but in reality there were a few lumpy, blustery days mixed in with the better ones. Variable southerlies were the dominant winds and on the good days they were down in the 5 to 15 knot range. The cool southerlies kept the sets on the bar down around 0.5m mark but the outside swell was up around 1.2m+ and hit 1.5m to 2m over the weekend. Still, every day was certainly fishable with conditions good enough at times for the odd extended charter. Double Island Point was again on the agenda and while it ran hot and cold up that way, on the good days the catch was pearl perch, mowong, venus tusk fish, estuary cod, large mouth nannygai and, as per the photo below, the odd quality snapper. Nigel Kuring from Adelaide (below) is pictured with a nice 4.5kg snapper he boated at 'D.I.' while up there on a full day Cougar One charter on Wednesday.

And on the same full day charter, Mitch Frost from Currimundi (below left) hooked and landed a colourful 3kg+ large mouth nannygai or scarlet sea perch.

The middle reef belt was a bit more subdued this week. North Reef slowed down quite considerably with only average catches of squire, sweetlip, moses perch, pearl perch and venus tusk fish reported. On the bottom of North, however, it was a different story with yellowfin tuna, longtail tuna and quality snapper on the bite. Chardon's Reef was quiet apart from the outer edge which yielded a few quality 'Knobbies' and plenty of venus tusk fish, hussar, moses perch and pearl perch. Warren from Network Refrigeration in Brisbane (below) boated a standout 5kg+ snapper on Cougar One's full day charter to Chardon's on Sunday. It was the work group's annual outing and they weren't put off by a bit of slop and chop. Closer in, Sunshine Reef was the spot for estuary cod, sweetlip and snapper. Andy Pannifex (above right) is pictured with a snapper he caught on a soft plastic while out there with Noosa River Fishing Safaris.

And Chris 'Lumberjack' Arnold from NRFS (below) caught an 8kg estuary cod jigging a Rapala Snap Rap Ice Jig on the same Light Line and Lure session.

Apart from that, the only other reports to hand were of snapper in good numbers and good quality out around Jew Shoal (in Laguna Bay) over the weekend.
