There wasn't a lot of activity on the local reefs this week. Conditions
weren't too bad but the fishing was a bit slow, even for those who worked
the wider reefs. Chardon's Wide produced only average reefies with Maori
cod, snapper, pearl perch, morwong, gold band snapper and hussar boated
but not in any real numbers or size. Local angler Robert Bray (below) was
out there on Saturday on a Cougar
One Maxi charter when he boated this 2.5kg snapper.
Greg Profke (below) was offered a spot on a boat heading for some supposedly good grounds out wide of Fraser Island over the weekend and jumped at the chance to work a bit of new territory. He was certainly pleased he took the chance too, coming back with the lovely 10.4kg red emperor he's pictured with. His bait? Whole pilchards.
North Reef ran hot and cold, producing teraglin jewfish, moses perch, parrot fish and Maori cod but had bursts of activity when quality fish like yellowtail kingfish to 1.2 metres came on the bite.
The only other reports of note were from Sunshine Reef where sweetlip, bonito and Maori cod were on the bite.
ONSHORE: The coastal surf
beaches were well worth a look this week with pleasant conditions encouraging
perhaps a few more than average surf anglers to wet a line. The North
Shore rewarded the faithful with tailor on the bite around dawn and dusk
along the southern end of Teewah Beach. Whiting well spread with the elbow
slappers coming from just north of Teewah township. Whiting were also
active in the small surf between the rock groynes on Main Beach. Over
on the east side, Sunrise and Marcus beaches produced bream, tarwhine
and whiting, as did Sunshine Beach but with the added bonus there of tailor
in the evenings. Last but not least, dart were schooling and on the chew
at North Peregian Beach.
