OFFSHORE: There wasn't a lot to crow about as far as the offshore brigade were concerned this week with moderate to strong south east and easterly winds making life very uncomfortable on the outer reefs.
The week, in fact, kicked off in mostly unfishable style and only improved, as the days went by, to pretty ordinary at best.
The middle reef belt was about as far as most boaties were prepared to venture and those who made the effort reported Sweetlip, Scarlet Sea Perch, Squire, Teraglin Jewfish and a few quality Moses Perch at North Reef.
Closer to home, Sunshine Reef was the only other producer of note, yielding Maori Cod, Sweetlip, Parrot Fish, Moses Perch, Snapper, Squire and Yellowtail Kingfish.
Sailfish Now for some good news! Noosa Blue Water Charters have got Cougar Too back on the water after a five week wait for motor parts and are raring to go for the summer season. To celebrate their fleet being back to full complement, and to herald what we expect to be a ripper pelagic season, we're running a competition with two Half Day fishing charters up for grabs. So, what's the deal? Just estimate the weight of the Sailfish (above) and/or the Mahi Mahi (below) and email your entry to Noosa Blue Water Charters. The first entry in with the correct weight for either fish will win a Half Day Charter worth $130.00. If the correct weight isn't picked, the closest to it by 6pm next Monday, Nov. 26, will be deemed winner.
Dolphin Fish or Mahi Mahi
Anyway, what are you waiting for! Click on the hyperlink above, or HERE, and send in your entry. By the way, both these fish were taken on Blue Water Charters boats in December last year so this is what you can look forward to if the sea gods are kind. Note: There is a limit of one entry, per fish, per person, so take care and get it right. Oh, and good luck.

ONSHORE: The coastal surf beaches were a bit sand blown this week, but were still worth a look, with Dart and Whiting well spread and quite active. The top end of the North Shore saw most of the action with Tailor and Trevally on the bite from the rocks at Double Island Point. Trevally were also on the bite around the corner in Rainbow Lagoon where Grassy Sweetlip (to 2kg), Flathead & Bream were an added bonus. The middle groyne on Main Beach was another Trevally hot spot (on soft plastics) while over on the east side, Castaways Beach produced quality Bream.

Trevally Bream
In the river, Estuary Cod, Flathead and (as you can see by the photo above left) Trevally were on the bite down at the mouth, as Tewantin angler Tom Whittaker discovered on Friday night. Tom attracted the attention of these 1.25kg 'Trevs' with live Herring baits. Apart from that, Whiting were biting at Munna Point while Mangrove Jack and quality Bream were active around Harbourtown at Tewantin. Adam and Amanda Witchard (above right) were fishing there on Wednesday afternoon and tempted this 820gm 'Yellowfin' with a live Herring bait. Bream were also well worth targeting further up river between the lakes (on drifted Whitebait) and in Lake Cooroibah where Flathead were responding well to Mullet strips.
