OFFSHORE: It was a pretty good week for the offshore boys, especially for those who targeted the morning sessions. Those early birds avoided the often more blustery 15 to 20 knot late afternoon north easterly sea breezes. Friday's brief 25 to 30 knot blow shut the gate for that day but it was pretty much all systems go over the weekend, with light to moderate (5 to 15 knot) variable easterlies dominating. The outside swell remained in the 0.5m to 1.2m range.
Snapper
The Noosa Bar crossing was a little bit sloppy at times but the sets were quite modest and didn't present much of a challenge. Noosa Blue Water Charters targeted the Barwon Banks on a full day charter on Thursday, coming back with snapper, amberjack, moses perch, venus tusk fish, gold spot wrasse, red throat emperor and Maori cod. Kath Newton from Maroochydore (above) made it look so easy as she held up two of the quality 3kg+ snapper from the trip.
Northern Bluefin or Longtail Tuna
Closer in, Massoud's Reef was the spot for northern bluefin tuna and estuary cod. Brad Jansons from Victoria (above) tempted his 16kg longtail with a live slimy mackerel on Tuesday's Cougar One excursion. And on the same half day charter, Norm (also from Victoria) below left, boated a 6kg gold spot cod.
Gold Spot Cod Cobia or Black Kingfish
North Reef was always worth a look and, as usual, didn't disappoint the faithful. Species on the bite there were squire, sweetlip, mulloway, cobia, venus tusk fish, moses perch, pearl perch and mackerel tuna. Local angler Ruuben van den Heuvel (above right) nailed his cobia wide on North Reef on Sunday.
Mulloway orJewfish
The boys from Fishing Offshore Noosa always check out their mulloway spots either side of the full moon and on Tuesday's half day charter to North they hit the jackpot. Ryan Donovan from Mt. Gambia in South Australia (above) was the lucky punter and he was more than delighted to pose with his 8kg jewie.
Coral Trout
The Coffees produced northern bluefin tuna, sweetlip, hussar, squire, pearl perch and moses perch. Closer to home, Chicko Vella from Davo's Compleat Angler was out on Sunshine Reef on Sunday putting his mate Darren's new boat through its paces when they decided to have a quick fish. On the first drop they picked up a 3kg coral trout which young Alec (above) is pictured with, then boated a snapper, two estuary cod and two Maori cod using live yakkas.
