Point break at First Point
OFFSHORE:
Ah well, all good things must come to an end some time. After an uninterrupted three week run of excellent offshore fishing weather, fresh to strong (20 to 25 knot) south easterlies moved in and hammered the coastline. With the swell up over the 2m mark the point breaks in Laguna Bay, as you can see by the photo above, were exceptionally good Trevallybut similar conditions on the river mouth bar meant that the bluewater brigade had little choice but cool their heels, mow the lawns and service their gear.

ONSHORE: The coastal surf beaches were 'die-hards only' territory this week although those hardy souls who made the effort reported Whiting and Dart well spread along Teewah Beach on the North Shore and the odd thumper Trevally from the rocks at Double Island Point. Over on the east side, he only report of note was of Whiting and Dart at Marcus Beach. The river system was pretty quiet with Flathead and Whiting the prime targets down at the river mouth, in the stretch from Munna Beach to the Frying Pan, around the Woods Point (where Bream were on the bite) and in Weyba Creek where Trevally and Mangrove Jacks (mainly at night) were also active. The Munna Bridge/Sun Lagoon area was another Trevally spot (fly and soft plastics) as young Jesse Scott (above) found over the weekend. Jesse, who was there at first light casting Squidgie soft plastic Prawns, landed the 1.6kg specimen he's pictured with (and one at 750gm) yesterday morning. Quality Queenfish and the odd Tailor made a splash in the outer Woods Bay near Ricky Ricardo's and, as Cooroy angler Peter Hodgetts (below) found on Saturday morning, up along Munna Beach (near the Fisheries and Marine station). Peter tempted the 2.5kg 'Skinny' in the photo with a well cast Smelt Scales soft plastic. He was armed with a Raider rod and a Shimano Symetre reel loaded with 6lb braid and 8lb mono trace.
Queensfish
On the freshwater scene, the Lake MacDonald Bass were still in good numbers along the 'Bubble Trail' and to a lesser extent around 'Three ways' where soft plastics and Jackalls got best results. At Borumba Dam most of the Bass action was once again around the edges of the main basin with spinnerbaits and Jackalls working equally well.
