OFFSHORE: As you can see by the photo of the bar crossing below, conditions were pretty ordinary over the weekend with strong south easterlies, heavy rain and a 3m to 4m swell hammering the coast from Friday afternoon onwards.
Those who failed to get out earlier in the week had to rely on the local fish and chipperies if they were after a feed of fish.
Noosa Bar on Monday afternoon
Before the blow, the Barwon Banks were quite do-able but those who made the effort reported only very average catches of moses perch, pearl perch, cobia (undersize or only just legal), hussar, gold spot wrasse, squire and venus tusk fish.
Pearl Perch and Maori Cod
Closer in, North Reef produced pearl perch, moses perch, striped sea perch, cobia (in close on the bottom end) and venus tusk fish while Chardon's Reef was the spot for squire and sweetlip plus, as you can see by the photo above, Maori cod (to 2kg) and squire (av. 1.5kg). Paul MacDonell and Asher Hammond fished there on Thursday afternoon and popped into Davo's for a quick pic on their way home. Sunshine Reef wasn't a bad option actually, with squire, snapper (to 7kg), sweetlip (to 3.2kg) and pearl perch on the bite along the dirty water line, especially around dusk.

ONSHORE: Earlier in the week, Teewah Beach was pretty much flat as a tack (believe it or not) and most of the good gutters (if they existed at all) were found along the stretch from 'Freshwater' to Double Island Point. Those who went the extra few kilometers, though, managed to hook up with quality whiting and plenty of dart, plus bream and tarwhine to 1kg.
Snapper
The only report from over on the east side was from local angler Roy Helling (above) who, while fishing for tailor near the rocks at the northern end of Sunshine Beach on Tuesday night, hooked and landed this 3.5kg+ (estimated) snapper.
Lower Estuary
The heavy rains didn't take long to discolour up the waters in the lower estuary but before things got too murky there were plenty of quality whiting on the bite down around the river mouth. Toni Curry from Tewantin (below) hit the jackpot there on Wednesday when, using live prawns, she and her husband boated over a dozen good size fish, top weight, 620gms.
Whiting
Also earlier in the week, flathead were responding to small blades and live fish baits along the Gympie Terrace stretch.
Tailor and Flathead
Adrian Brumm (above) used live herring baits to attract a 2kg 'Lizard' and 1.2kg tailor in that area on Monday afternoon.
