OFFSHORE: Those anglers who couldn't get out to the local reefs earlier in the week (before Wednesday afternoon) had to cool their heels until the winds dropped back below the 15 knot mark over the weekend. Just before the strong northerly blow, of course, the snapper came on the bite big time (as they do) so the lucky few who made it out not only capitalised on the good conditions, they nearly all came back with some impressive catches of quality snapper.
Snapper
Inner North Reef was the big performer early in the week with quality snapper in good numbers. Local angler Tony Zahn (above) fished there on Wednesday morning ahead of the forecast change and, apart from a number of hussar, was happy to boat the 5.5kg 'Knobby' he's pictured with before heading for home.
Snapper
While 'Chopper' Dave Nettleton (above) and his good fishing buddy Bec Holland (below) fished inner North on Tuesday and Wednesday morning, coming back on both days with snapper in the 3.0kg to 5.5kg range. In addition to that, they also boated a few Maori cod, Dave lost a good Spaniard (he thinks) and, as a bonus, their well presented quality catch earned them (jointly, as they insisted it was a team effort) this week's $50.00 Davo's Fish of the Week prize.
Snapper
Other species on the bite at North Reef (ignoring the numerous school sharks) were teraglin jewfish, venus tusk fish and moses perch. Those who worked Massoud's Reef also did quite well, boating teraglin jewfish, sweetlip, Maori cod and moses perch. Marlin were also caught and released on both reefs.
Cobia
Sunshine Reef fired a bit better this week with squire, venus tusk fish, moses perch and a few good cobia taken on the outer edge. Local lads Jai Cain and Jack Meakin (above) are pictured with a 10.5kg cobia or black kingfish which was boated on Saturday morning's 1/2 day Trekka 2 charter to Sunshine Wide.
Still on Sunshine, but closer in, the catch was northern bluefin tuna, sweetlip and snapper. Matt Browne from Peregian Beach (in both photos above) caught snapper and grass sweetlip on Gulp soft plastics while on a Noosa River Fishing Safaris charter. In Laguna Bay, Hall's Reef produced grass sweetlip.
