The Noosa Fishing Report

As at Monday March 30, 2015.

OFFSHORE: Not a bad week actually. Light to moderate variable easterlies and a 0.5m to 1.0m swell set the scene for some great offshore conditions up until Sunday when the south easterlies gathered a bit of pace and moved into the 15 to 20 knot range. Even then it was still fishable, so we had no off days.
Mahi Mahi Tomato Cod
Wild Thing 2 scheduled a full day at Double Island Point on Saturday and came back with pearl perch, venus tusk fish, moses perch, hussar, coral bream, mowong, amberjack, spotted mackerel, mahi mahi (Tom Bean above) and one very colourful tomato cod, which was boated by Andrew Brier from Brisbane.
Pearl Perch Gold Spot Cod
Trekka 2 targeted the Barwon Banks on Friday and got their customers onto venus tusk fish, pearl perch and gold band snapper. Tewantin angler John Moroney (above) boated a monster 4.2kg pearl perch and Dave Kennedy from the Isle of Man (above) was looking forward to a baked gold band snapper.
Spanish Mackerel
North Reef was by far the most popular destination this week, producing spotted mackerel, Spanish mackerel, squire, grass sweetlip, moses perch, pearl perch, snapper, cobia, scarlet sea perch, teraglin jewfish, yellowfin tuna, coral bream, gold spot cod and venus tusk fish. There was even the odd marlin catch and release. Tony Hancock and Andrea Sloane from Bendigo in Victoria (above) nailed a Spaniard each on Friday morning's Wild Thing 2 charter.
Yellowfin Tuna
And from that same half day WT2 charter we have Stuart Lawson and Lois Lim from Sydney (above) with an absolute thumper 18kg (est) yellowfin tuna.
Cobia
The charter boys really had a ball out there this week. Adam Keough from Doonan (above) boated a 10kg cobia on Saturday morning's Trekka 2 charter.
Snapper
The pelagics were so aggressive this week that it was hard to get a bait down deep and when they did, the captures were mostly 'average size'. The reef fish must have been getting hungry, though, because on Tuesday's Trekka 2 charter Emily Muir's 4kg+ snapper (above) came up from the bottom, nailed her pilchard floater, and took off like a steam train. Her standout knobby and her Colgate smile, won her this week's $50.00 Davo's Fish of the Week prize.
Spanish Mackerel
Jackson Ross and James Strachan (above) got simultaneous Spanish mackerel hookups within minutes of arriving at North Reef on Friday arvo. Despite the odd tangle they managed to boat both fish. Jackson estimated his Spaniard to be around 9kg and James' at 11kg. Both fish went for pilchard floaters.
