As at Monday October 16, 2006
OFFSHORE: With light to moderate (5 to 15 knot) variable northerlies dominating the offshore scene this week there were plenty of opportunities for the blue water brigade to get out and wet a line. And that they did, although with the school holiday crowd starting to thin out there wasn't quite the traffic buildup at the Noosa Bar as we witnessed last week. The morning sessions were best, however, as the afternoon north easterly sea breezes tended to be a bit blustery at times
Snapper Jewfish or Mulloway
Squire, Pearl Perch, Moses Perch and Parrot Fish were common catches at all of the visited reefs. In addition, North Reef produced Snapper and Shiny Mackerel while over on Chardon's Reef the bonus species were Sweetlip and Cobia (Black Kingfish) plus a few Marlin and Sailfish which were caught and released. Closer to home, Sunshine Reef fired up somewhat towards the end of the week, yielding Cobia, Sweetlip, Shiny Mackerel, Cod, and, as you can see by the two photos above, quality Snapper and Jewfish. Col Farrell from Brisbane (above left) boated the 5kg Snapper he's posing with while out at Sunshine Reef yesterday on a 3/4 day Cougar Too charter. And on the same charter, Sydney visitor Steve Pilling (above right) caught the boat's standout, a 15.5kg Silver Jewfish or Mulloway. Both anglers were kitted out with Angler Assegai rods and Shimano Baitrunner 6500 threadline reels loaded with 8kg line.

ONSHORE: There wasn't a lot of feedback from the coastal surf beaches this week although the North Shore stretch still played host to the tail end of the holiday crowd. The only report of any note, in fact, was from the First Cutting on Teewah TrevallyBeach where Whiting and, at dawn and dusk, Tailor were on the bite. In the river, with the Prawns running, Flathead were well spread and very much on the bite down towards the river mouth, in Weyba Creek (soft plastics), up at Lake Cooroibah (along with Whiting) and the stretch between the lakes where Bream, Trevally and the odd Mangrove Jack were also active. Trevally were chasing metal slug lures, soft plastics and Rio's Prawn lures in the Woods Bays and in the Munna Bridge/Culgoa Point area with bust-offs from some serious fish reported. Local angler Kim Vitale (right) missed out on being in last week's report due to lack of space so here he is now. Kim tempted this 1.5kg 'Trev' last Tuesday week in the Woods Bays. He was armed with a Shakespeare Ugly Stik and a Shimano Sienna 4000 threadline reel loaded with 8lb braid. His lure was a fast retrieved Rio's slug. On the freshwater scene; Tarpon were chasing flies in the top end of Kin Kin Creek while the Lake MacDonald Bass were responding to soft plastics at 'Three Ways' and surface poppers in Borer Creek. At Borumba Dam all the action was in the Yabba Arm where Jackals were working well on the resident Bass.

And what about this guy!

Last year, Alex 'Iron Bar' Kiefer spurned the restrictions imposed on him by his wheelchair and took up the sport of kayak fishing.

He hasn't looked back since.
