OFFSHORE: It was a bit sloppy at times on the local reefs this week. The nor' nor' easters tended to blow hard in the afternoons so the morning sessions proved to be the most attractive. The outside swell was in the 0.5m to 1.0m range on most days. Saturday was a tad blowy (25 to 30 knots in the afternoon) and lumpy (the swell moved up into the 1.5m to 2.0m range) but it was still quite fishable if you had a big enough boat. Not one of our better offshore weeks.
Snapper
Noosa Blue Water Charters targeted the Barwon Banks three times this week, coming back with gold band snapper, red throat emperor, venus tusk fish, snapper, gold spot wrasse, teraglin jewfish, moses perch, morwong, pearl perch and Maori cod. Jesse Stanford from Woolooga near Gympie (above) boated a 3.5kg snapper on Sunday's full day Cougar One charter while Jason McManus (below left) is pictured with two nice gold band snapper from Friday's trip.
Gold Band Snapper Large Mouth Nannygai or Scarlet Sea Perch
Closer in, Massoud's Reef produced pearl perch, moses perch and venus tusk as did North Reef but with the added bonus there of snapper, sweetlip and large mouth nannygai. Sean Waldron from North Arm (above right) caught his 2.6kg scarlet sea perch on this morning's Cougar One charter to North Reef.
Snapper
And Peter Braam (above), assistant manager of the Noosa Caravan Park at Tewantin, boated a 3.5kg snapper on today's Trekka 2 charter to North Reef.
Spanish Mackerel
Sunshine Reef was pretty quiet, yielding just the odd squire and coral trout plus lots of juvenile red emperor. There was a lot of baitfish, bird and small pelagic activity just out from Alexandria Bay and just off the National Park headland as the weekend drew to a close so that looks promising for the week ahead. In Laguna Bay, Jew Shoal was the spot for sweetlip, snapper and Spanish mackerel. Young Nate Bull from Cooroibah (above) fished the 'Shoal' with his dad on Saturday morning and while they only caught one fish, it just happened to be the first Spaniard of the season. Nate did well to hold this 7kg fish for the photo and was the deserving winner of this week's $50.00 Davo's Fish of the Week prize. The only other report was of sweetlip and bonito at Little Hall's Reef.
