Noosa Sunrise
OFFSHORE: Light to moderate variable Northerlies continued to dominate the offshore scene with the only non fishable day being Saturday when the Nor'Westers cranked up over the 30 knot mark. Unfortunately the action on the 'fishable' days was pretty lacklustre and nowhere near as hot as over the last few weeks. Still, for those prepared to put in a bit of time there was certainly a feed to be had with Squire, Parrot Fish and Moses Perch pretty much common to all locations. The closer reefs got most of the attention, however, with North Reef producing Northern Bluefin Tuna, Cobia, Pearl Perch, Teraglin Jewfish, Railway Perch, Sweetlip, Mowong and, as you can see by the photo below, quality Snapper. Seven year old William Petro from Sydney boated this 5.1kg 'Knobby' (with a bit of help and advice from the bigger boys) while out there on a half day Cougar Too charter on Thursday. He was kitted out with a Silstar Crystal Tip rod and a Shimano TLD 20 reel loaded with 25 pound line. Other options were 'The Hill' (which yielded Sweetlip, Gold Band Snapper, Railway Perch and Shark) and Sunshine Reef which was the spot for Pearl Perch, Sweetlip, Railway Perch, Red Emperor and, as per the photo on the right, Cobia.

Paul Dobbie from Newcastle in New South Wales boated this 15kg Black Kingfish while out there on a half day Cougar Too charter last Monday. He was kitted out with a Gary Howard rod and an Alvey 825C reel loaded with 30lb line. Apart from that, the inner National Park cove points in Laguna Bay produced the odd small Snapper on trolled minnow lures (although the first 'weed' blooms made life a tad difficult) plus Yellowtail Pike, Yakkas and Juvenile School Mackerel.

ONSHORE: With the school holidays at an end the coastal surf beaches were only lightly patronised this week and, as a Golden Trevallyresult, the only reports of note were of Tailor at Marcus Beach. In the river, Chopper Tailor were well spread from the river mouth to Lake Cooroibah. Whiting and Flathead were pretty much the bread and butter species and were in good numbers down around the river mouth (where Yellowtail Kingfish to 2kg were on the bite) and the Frying Pan. Trevally were active in the Munna Point area and along the Gympie Terrace stretch and that was where Stephen Gray from Maryborough (right) tempted this 2.1kg 'Golden'. Stephen was floating a bit of pork fat on a 1/0 hook from one of the boat ramp jetties on Thursday when this quality fish jumped onto the end of his 15lb handline. Apart from that, there were Mangrove Jacks, Bream and Moses Perch on the bite at the mouth of Lake Cooroibah, Flathead in the lake itself, and in the stretch between the lakes; Trevally, Mangrove Jack and Cod. On the freshwater scene, Lake Borumba had Bass and Yellowbelly chasing Jackals in the Yabba Arm while the Lake MacDonald Bass (to 48cm) were responding well to Jackals around the 'Gazebo' and 'Three Ways'.
