OFFSHORE: With light to moderate variable
winds and a modest swell continuing on from last week the conditions on
the local reefs were again ideal for both the small and the larger boats.
Out wide the current was running a tad hard but those who upped their
sinker lead reported some good catches of cobia, pearl perch and quality
snapper at the Barwon Banks.
| ONSHORE: There
was a lot of activity on the upper part of the North Shore coastal beach
stretch with huge schools of pilchards right in close to the surf gutters
being hammered by large numbers of sharks. The upside was the presence of
large bream plus schools of tuna and spotted mackerel which were successfully
targeted by shore based surf anglers. Further up, the rocks at Double Island
Point yielded cobia, tailor and, as you can see by the photo below, trevally
and snapper. James Paine from Tewantin (below) worked those waters with
7" Blue Pearl Shad soft plastics around lunchtime on Friday and was
very happy with his catch of trevally and tailor plus his bonus 2.2kg keeper
The only other reports of note from the North Shore were of bream, quality tarwhine and whiting in numbers opposite the Third Cutting on the incoming tide. Over on the east side, the northern end of Sunshine Beach produced the odd jewfish (to 80cm) plus some quality tailor a couple of hours after high tide while further along the beach, flathead, bream, dart and whiting were on the bite. Apart from that, Castaways Beach was the spot for bream and dart while Marcus Beach produced whiting, as did north Peregian Beach, but with the added bonus there of tarwhine and dart.
In the estuary, whiting and big bream were on the bite down at the river mouth while flathead and trevally (diamond and tea leaf) were responding well to soft plastics along the first ski run and near Makepeace Island at Tewantin.
Mangrove jacks were active at the mouth of Lake Cooroibah and, as you can see by the photo above, around Munna Point. Nathan Carrott, manager of the Tewantin Noosa Bowls Club, attracted this 58cm specimen with a Gladiator Prawn soft plastic lure on Wednesday night. He was armed with a Nitro rod and a Shimano Twin Power reel loaded with 3kg braid. Apart from that, the inner Woods Bay towards the Sheraton produced the odd trevally in the morning.
On the freshwater scene, the Borumba Dam bass, which were schooling in numbers in the main basin, were chasing blades, spinnerbaits and soft plastics.
