OFFSHORE: Light to moderate (5 to 15 knot) variable easterlies and a 0.5m to 0.75m swell dominated earlier in the week and with all the forecasts pointing towards blustery conditions over the weekend, those who could wrangle the time off headed for the local reefs while the going was good. No one ventured beyond the middle reef belt, however, with North Reef getting most of the attention. Heading the capture list out that way were; teraglin jewfish, venus tusk fish, moses perch, sweetlip, striped sea perch, snapper, pearl perch, Maori cod, coral bream, estuary cod and (on the better days) cobia in numbers.
Cobia
Virtually all our photos this week are from the ever reliable North Reef so we'll simply go through them in the order they appeared as the week progressed.
Al Hall from Melbourne (above) is pictured with a cobia which he boated on Monday afternoon's half day Cougar One charter to the middle of North Reef.
Cobia
James Hall, Ryland Fenwarden, Ricky Patel, Marieta Koleva and Marcus Griffiths (above) were part of a wedding/bucks party charter to North Reef on Wild Thing when the cobia came on the bite on Wednesday. The group of friends had a marvelous time and, after the fish were divvied up, were seen heading for The Boathouse Restaurant (further up on Gympie Terrace) with their cobia fillets (and a few other reefies) to continue the party with a seafood banquet.
Grass Sweetlip and Snapper
And Howard Thrift from south Brisbane (above) was happy to pose with a sweetlip and a snapper from Thursday's half day Trekka 2 charter to North Reef.
Snapper
Noosa Blue Water Charters did a number of runs out that way during the week. Lucas Burke from Buddina (above) boated this snapper on Friday's trip.
Maori Cod
Saturday was starting to look a bit sloppy as the winds picked up but a few of the bigger boats squeezed in one last fish in the morning before conditions deteriorated. Travis Brockman from Brisbane (above) boated this Maori cod on Saturday morning's half day Trekka 2 charter to the bottom of North Reef.
Snapper
And from that same charter, Christina Martin from Brisbane (above) is pictured with a couple of snapper. Hard to believe it was already blowing hard outside.
Snapper
Closer in, Sunshine Reef was good for grass sweetlip, venus tusk fish to 2kg, and snapper to 70cm while around the corner in Laguna Bay, Jew Shoal was the spot for the odd snapper. Local angler Mark Bisman (above) crossed the bar around 4.30am on Friday and worked the Shoal with pilchard floaters until about 6.30am, by which time he had a good feed in the bin. After a quick pic stop, he was home, cleaning his catch by 7.30am. Not a bad start to the day.
