OFFSHORE: Variable northerlies dominated the offshore scene this week with the afternoon north easterly sea breezes coming on quite strong and at times gusting around the 20 to 25 knot mark. The morning sessions were better with light to moderate (5 to 15 knot) winds the norm rather than the exception.
Sweetlip
So, the strategy for this week was.. rise early, get out, get some fish and get back before lunchtime. It would have been the perfect plan, too, if the fish were on the same wavelength. That, unfortunately, wasn't to be the case with lots and lots of juvenile 'pickers' and otherwise mostly just legal or 'plate' size reef fish on the bite. Massoud's Reef undoubtedly produced some of the better keepers this week. Marco Rakic from South Australia (above) fished there on Sunday morning on a three quarter day Cougar One charter and was delighted to boat not one, but two quality 3kg-3.5kg grass sweetlip. Good pose mate.
Maori Cod
While from the same charter, it was a moot point as to who looked the more surprised; Brisbane angler Damien Slannelly (above) or the 3kg Maori cod he's pictured with. Other species taken on the day were moses perch and venus tusk fish. Also on the middle reef belt, North Reef (close and wide) yielded small coral trout, moses perch, squire, Maori cod, gold spot cod, venus tuskers and teraglin jewfish while at 'The Coffees' the catch was squire and grass sweetlip.
Closer to home, Sunshine Close was a good option for small snapper while in Laguna Bay, snapper, moses perch and mowong were reported on the bite around Jew Shoal. Apart from that, Little Hall's Reef produced the odd squire and (over the weekend) mackerel tuna were on the boil not far out from the bar.
