As at Monday May 26, 2008

OFFSHORE: It as a bit of a mixed bag on the offshore scene with a few days lost to the fresh to strong south easterlies.
Northern Bluefin Tuna Still, with four days of light to moderate winds and hardly any swell to contend with, expectations were of some good returns from the local reefs.
The fish, unfortunately, weren't in a cooperative mood and while most boaties came home with a feed it was hard going at the best of times.
North Reef was again the standout destination, producing squire, pearl perch, mowong, gold spot wrasse, cobia, parrot fish, moses perch, sweetlip, quality snapper (to 7kg) and, as you can see by the photo on the right, northern bluefin or 'Longtail' tuna.
Amelia Done from Sydney was out there on a three quarter day Cougar One charter on Sunday when she boated this
handsome 8kg specimen.
She was armed with a Wilson Live Fibre rod and a Shimano TLD20 reel loaded with 30lb line. Her bait? Slimy mackerel. Sunshine Reef was the only other producer of note, yielding northern bluefin tuna and spotted mackerel.

ONSHORE: Pleasant conditions on the coastal surf beaches encouraged plenty of anglers to try their hand this week.
On the North Shore, dart and whiting were well spread and in good numbers, although the stretch from Teewah township to the shire boundary produced best. There were also a few quality tailor on the bite in the surf gutters around Teewah.
Tailor were also active around the middle rock groyne on Main Beach while over the hill, Sunrise Beach produced whiting and dart and Peregian Beach yielded quality bream at night, as did Marcus Beach but with the added bonus of tarwhine.
Noosa River from Munna Beach
The estuary system was again quiet with whiting being the higher profile species from Munna Point to the Frying Pan. Bream were on the bite down at the river mouth while trevally were chasing surface poppers a bit further up around the old dog beach strip. Trevally were also active in Sun Lagoon at Culgoa Point, just out from the DPI station at Russell Street and (on cast metal slug lures) at the bottom end of Gympie Terrace.
Apart from that there were a few flathead on the bite at the top of Lake Cooroibah and in the stretch between the lakes.
