|OFFSHORE: It was another
good week as far as the offshore brigade were concerned with light to moderate
(5 to 15 knot) variable easterlies and modest swells dominating on most
days. Moderate to fresh northerlies on Thursday broke to pattern briefly
but there were no complaints from the blue water boys.
The bar crossing didn't hold any nasty surprises or claim any boats this week with the main channel more pronounced and moving a little bit further north.
Out wide, The Barwon Banks produced pearl perch, hussar, moses perch, bonito and snapper. Closer in, North Reef was by far the better performer (and the most popular destination) with a wide range of species on the bite. Making the capture list were: squire, snapper, cobia, jewfish, pearl perch, mahi mahi, sweetlip, teraglin jewfish, red emperor, lots of quality moses perch, venus tusk fish, frying pan snapper, coral bream, gold spot cod and Maori cod. Craig Hartnett from Wodonga, Victoria (above) is pictured with one of the dollies or mahi mahi boated on Wednesday's Trekka 2 charter to the bottom of North.
|And Richard Shed from Auckland, New Zealand (above)
boated this nice keeper size red emperor on Friday's Trekka
2 charter to the middle of North Reef. While young Billy Austin
from Brisbane (above right) was nearly dwarfed by this thumper pearl perch,
one of a number boated on Saturday morning's charter.
There were a few jewfish or mulloway on the prowl out around the outer edge of North Reef this week. Narelle Clark-Dwyer from Noosa (above) had an absolutely marvellous time on Wednesday's Cougar One charter to The Wreck and the top of North and, as you can see, showed the boys how it's done.
From that same charter, Robert Courtney from New Zealand (above) was just a tad camera shy but managed to present his catch without blowing his cover.
Still at North Reef, Allen Feilding from Palmwoods and Farnie Malan from Brisbane (above) each boated a good eating size gold spot cod on Sunday's Wild Thing 2 charter. And from that same seven hour charter we have Hugo Butler (below left) with a Maori cod and an unknown angler (below) with a snapper.
|Apart from that, Chardon's Reef was the spot for pearl perch, moses perch, grass sweetlip, squire. Maori cod, hussar and venus tusk fish while closer in at Sunshine Reef it was grass sweetlip and coral trout. Tom Davis (below left) is pictured with one of a large number of 'lippers' he caught and released out on Sunshine on Wednesday morning using pilchard floaters and soft plastics. He was on a Noosa River Fishing Safaris 'Light Line and Lure' charter.|
|And don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to meet the legendary Gomoku Micro Jigging Pioneer Fred Goh (above) this week. Fred will be headlining a 'Micro Jigging Techniques' Seminar at Davo's Tackle World Noosa this Wednesday night, October 28. Bookings essential; at the shop or call: 5449 8099.|
