Dolphins in Laguna Bay
OFFSHORE: The week got off to a pretty ordinary start with moderate to fresh variable northerlies making offshore conditions rather uninviting, even for the die-hards. From Friday onwards, however, it was all systems go as the winds abated and light to moderate north easterlies settled in for the duration. Squire, Pearl Perch and Parrot Fish were the species common to most of the visited reefs. In addition, North Reef produced Moses Perch, Snapper, Scarlet Sea Perch, Sweetlip, Teraglin Jewfish and, as you can see by the photo on the right, Cobia. Jason McLutyre from Maroochydore boated this 16.3kg 'Black Kingfish' while out there on a 3/4 day Cougar One charter on Saturday. He was kitted out with a Gary Howard custom rod and an Alvey 825C reel loaded with 30lb Pioneer Flexline. 'The Hill' was an option for Moses Perch and still more Cobia while over on Chardon's Reef the extras were Snapper, Teraglin Jewfish, Gold Band Snapper, lots and lots (they were putting them back) of Cobia and, as per the photo below, Maori Cod.

Local angler Rob Varley boated the 3kg 'Bro' he's pictured with while out on Chardon's on a full day Cougar Too charter on Friday. He was kitted out with a Silstar Crystal Tip rod and a Shimano TLD20 reel loaded with 25lb line. Laguna Bay was still quiet with a few Spotted Mackerel taken at Little Hall's Reef, north of Jew Shoal and near (juveniles) First Point.

ONSHORE: The coastal surf beaches were a little bit quiet this week with the North Shore being the best option for those after a feed. Whiting were well spread during the day although the area south of the First Cutting produced better than Trevallyaverage fish, with Tailor (at dawn and dusk) being an added bonus. Dart, Bream and Tarwhine were on the bite north of the township of Teewah while Tailor were also active in the surf gutters opposite the 'Red Canyon'. Pickings were slim on the east side where Sunshine Beach produced a few small Chopper Tailor, as did Peregian Beach but with the added bonus of Dart. In the river, Flathead and Whiting were the standouts down around the river mouth while Tailor were responding to Pilchard baits in the Frying Pan. Trevally were still very active in the Munna Bridge stretch as Wayne Voss (right) from Pomona found yesterday. Wayne was drifting a live winter Whiting from his canoe when this 3kg 'Trev' took it down whole. He was armed with a Shimano Taipan rod and a Daiwa Castor 2000 threadline reel loaded with 4kg line and 40lb trace. Apart from that there were a few Flathead on the bite in Weyba Creek, school Jewfish (to 2kg) around the Tewantin ski runs, Flathead, Tailor and Trevally on the go at the bottom end of Lake Cooroibah, and Queenfish at the top end of the lake. On the freshwater scene, there were quality Bass responding to Jackals around the main weed point on the left hand side of the Borumba Arm and around 'The Clumps' in the Yabba Arm.
