Fishing Noosa 'The Book'.
OFFSHORE: Any week with more fishable days than not is a good one. Fresh to strong (15 to 20 knot) south easterlies ruled the roost from Wednesday to Friday, limiting offshore activity to Laguna Bay, but apart from that it was all systems go with light to moderate (5 to 15 knot) winds and a 0.5m-1.0m swell.
Mahi Mahi or Dolphin Fish
On the better days there were plenty of opportunities to target the more distant reefs and those with the bigger boats certainly made the most of the benign conditions. The Noosa Charters boys scheduled a nine hour charter to Double Island Point on Sunday and came back grass sweetlip, pearl perch, hussar, venus tusk fish, coral bream, slate bream, moses perch, snapper, gold spot wrasse, Maori cod and one quality mahi mahi. Sandy Olds from Sippy Downs (above) was on that full day Wild Thing 2 excursion and made it look so easy when she presented this thumper mahi mahi or dolphin fish for the camera.
Snapper Maori Cod and Pearl Perch
Also from that charter (above) we have Tomas Iriondo from Cooroy with two snapper and Tas Lockhart from Melbourne with a Maori cod and a pearl perch.Green Jobfish
Pitzy Folk (above) fished out wide on Sunday with Chris 'Fella' Arnold from Noosa River Fishing Safaris. They found some new (hush, hush, secret) ground about 50 kliks out (we assume) and did well there, coming back with red throat emperor, moses perch, hussar, Maori cod, snapper, coronation or lunar tail trout, green jobfish, gold spot wrasse, venus tusk fish and rainbow runner. Pitzy's 'green jobby', which went for a pilchard floater, tipped the scales at 4.0kg.
Snapper
The Barwon Banks weren't exactly firing but for those prepared to put in the time there were some good pearl perch, moses perch, hussar, bonito and snapper to be had. Ray Muckert from Nambour (above) is pictured with a couple of nice snapper, boated out there on Monday's nine hour Trekka 2 charter.
Snapper Coarl Trout
And from that same charter, AIan Gallaher from Gympie (above left) was more than happy to pose with his standout knobby. Closer in, North Reef was the spot for squire, moses perch, coral bream, cobia, some good Maori cod and grass sweetlip, plus teraglin jewfish, mowong, pearl perch, sea bream, venus tusk fish and the odd coral trout. Andrew Dodwell from Pomona (above right) boated his colourful trout out there on Saturday's seven hour Trekka 2 charter.
Cobia or Black Kingfish
Best not forget the birthday boy! Greg Coulter from Geelong, Victoria (above) celebrated his 60th birthday with a trip to the bottom of North on Tuesday's half day Trekka 2 charter. The icing on the cake was his quality cobia. The only other reports were of snapper, and the odd spotted mackerel, at Jew Shoal.
