As at Monday October 30, 2006

OFFSHORE: With moderate to strong (20 to 25 knot+) south easterlies hammering the coastline at the beginning and the end of the week the offshore brigade had to make the most of the three fishable days that were sandwiched in between Sweetlipthe blustery weather. Those who felt the need to wet a line on our local reefs were confined to Wednesday through till Friday, although going by a few of the reports, some anglers would have wished they'd stayed at home. Still, as always, there were fish to be had for those in the know (or those with the luck) with Squire, Cobia and Cod common to the outside reefs. In addition, Chardon's Reef produced Snapper and Pearl Perch while over on North Reef the extras were Teraglin Jewfish, Parrot Fish, Sweetlip and Spangled Emperor. Closer in, Sunshine Reef was the spot for Coral Trout and Parrot Fish while in Laguna Bay, Jew Shoal yielded the odd Snapper and Yellowtail Kingfish. Because of the less than exciting conditions we have no offshore pix this week. The photo above? It's one we didn't have room for earlier in the month so here it is now. Local yak angler Ian Tagg boated this 4kg Sweetlip while out on the 'Shoal' drifting a live Yakka on a 4/0 hook from his Swing 'Angler' fishing kayak a few weeks ago. Ian was using a Penn Power Spin rod and a Shimano TSS4 reel with 25lb line to a 60lb trace.

ONSHORE: The North Shore was the only coastal beach strip that produced much at all this week with Dart and Whiting Whitingquite well spread and Tailor on the bite down towards the river mouth. In the river, Whiting were well spread throughout the system although the hot spots were at the top end of Lake Cooroibah, around Munna Point, down towards the river mouth and, as you can see by the photo on the right, the Frying Pan. Daryl Walter used a live Yabby to attract this 525gm specimen while fishing there on Saturday morning. He was armed with a Shimano threadline combo loaded with 1kg braid and 2kg mono leader. Flathead were also in good numbers from Tewantin to the river mouth with drifted live baits working particularly well. Trevally were still worth targeting with best results coming from the second ski run at Tewantin, the Woods Bays and, as per the photo below, Munna Point. Local lads Jay Kueffer and Tyson Anderson boated half a dozen of these feisty sportfish (to 2kg) while casting surface poppers there on Friday night. They were kitted out with Penn Power Spin combos loaded with 9lb line. Apart from that, Mangrove Jacks were on the bite between the lakes and at the entrance to the Everglades.
Trevally
On the freshwater scene, there were no reports of note from Lake MacDonald but the Borumba Dam Bass and Saratoga were responding well to Jackals, spinnerbaits and soft plastics around the Eagles' Nest and into the Kingham Arm.
