OFFSHORE: With moderate to strong south westerlies forecast (correctly) for the weekend, those lucky boaties who could arrange the time off hit the reefs earlier in the week and made the most of the light to moderate variable northerlies.
Snapper There were no tales of bin loads of fish being caught but most anglers who put in the time over a couple of tide changes came home with a decent feed. Out wide, the Barwon Banks produced squire, pearl perch, moses perch, hussar and parrot fish, as did 'The Hards' but with the added bonus of teraglin jewfish and, as per the photo above, snapper. Wayne Schneider was out there on a full day Cougar One charter on Friday when his squid/pilchard combo attracted the attention of the 5kg+ snapper he's posing with. He was using a Shimano Catana rod and an Alvey 825C reel loaded with 30lb line. Closer in, North Reef was the spot for sweetlip, moses perch, squire, teraglin jewfish and pearl perch while in Laguna Bay; cobia were chasing floated pilchards near Little Hall's Reef and trolled deep diving HB's out near Jew Shoal.

ONSHORE: The coastal beaches worked best earlier in the week before the strong south easterlies settled in over the weekend. On the North Shore, whiting and dart were well spread although the better fish tended to come from the surf gutters north of Teewah. Over on the east side, Marcus Beach produced tarwhine, dart and a few chopper tailor while south Peregian Beach was the spot for quality whiting in good numbers.
Noosa River from Munna Beach, Monday November 10, 2008 The river was fairly quiet this week although bream were responding well to prawn baits down at the river mouth around low tide. Flathead were well spread with lots of juveniles in amongst the keepers so please observe the size regulations.
Trevally
Trevally were active throughout the Woods Bays (as were whiting and a few mangrove jacks), Culgoa Point, Weyba Creek and up around Tewantin. Seven year old Charlie Boyes (above) caught his biggest ever fish near Makepeace Island on Saturday when the 2kg trevally he's pictured with swallowed his live herring bait. He was armed with a Daiwa Sprinter rod and a Jarvis Walker SV2000 reel loaded with 6kg line. Apart from that there a few mangrove jacks chasing live fish baits at the Munna Point Bridge and the odd spotted mackerel on the prowl in amongst the bait schools in the Woods Bays.
