The Noosa Fishing Report

As at Monday June 29, 2015.

OFFSHORE: For the fourth week in a row now we seem to have repeated the same less than exciting weather pattern, with quite fishable conditions (with mostly 5 to 15 knot variable winds) prevailing earlier in the week and then rainy, blustery 20 knot+ southerly conditions dominating over the weekends.
Red Emperor
While the weather was in their favour, the lads from Wild Thing 2 scheduled a full day charter to Double Island Point on Thursday, coming back with grass sweetlip, longtail tuna, mack tuna, mowong, cobia, coral bream, moses perch, gold spot wrasse, venus tusk fish and red emperor. Regular customer Ben Wanka (above) notched up two firsts this week. He boated his first Big Red and then saw his quality fish win him the $50.00 Davo's Fish of the Week prize.
Red Emperor Venus Tusk Fish
And above, from the same charter, Mark McKenzie from Hobart's red was a close runner up while Brendan Fielden from Victoria boated the standout venus tusk fish. The only other 'out wide' destination visited this week was The Barwon Banks where rosy jobfish, pearl perch, bonito, venus tuskers, snapper and moses perch were on the bite. Closer in, North Reef produced shiny mackerel, venus tusk fish, sweetlip, pearl perch, squire, coral trout, Maori cod, teraglin jewfish and gold spot cod. Paul Andrews from the Central Coast (below) is pictured with a couple of standout pearlies from Wednesday's Trekka 2 charter.
Pearl Perch
And from that same half day charter we have (below) Paul's dad Steve with a coral trout and Warren Dreise from Burrum Heads with a Maori cod and squire.
Coral Trout Maori Cod and Squire
Closer to home, Sunshine Reef yielded venus tusk fish, snapper, spangled emperor, cobia, mowong, coral trout, Maori cod, gold spot cod, moses perch, sweetlip and pearl perch. David Hubbard from Newcastle (below) did the honours with couple of Sunshine snapper from Wednesday's Wild Thing 2 charter.
Snapper
Laguna Bay was quiet as far as bird sign went but the bottom bashers did quite well at Jew Shoal with snapper to 4kg responding to baits and soft plastics.
Northern Bluefin or Longtail Tuna
On the other side of the bay, longtail tuna were still on the prowl along the Hall's Reef stretch. Local yak angler Peter 'Pedro' Doff (above) was drift trolling a live yakka behind his kayak at Little Hall's on Thursday when this snodger northern bluefin crashed the party. It took Pete over 40 minutes of hard pump and wind to get this fish to the side and a lot of effort to get it on board. It tipped the Davo's scales at 24kg and that's a good fish in anyone's book. Well done.
