OFFSHORE: There wasn't a lot of change from
last week as far as the offshore conditions were concerned. A modest 1m
to 1.2m swell and light to moderate variable winds prevailed and trips
out wide were the norm rather than the exception.
|North Reef was the spot for snapper in the 3kg
to 5kg range, amberjack, yellowtail kingfish, parrot fish, teraglin jewfish
and pearl perch while at Sunshine Reef the standouts were squire, school
mackerel, sweetlip, parrot fish, pearl perch and, as you can see by the
photo below, coral trout. Benoit Fourie boated this 2.5kg specimen there
Laguna Bay was pretty quiet, although Jew Shoal still managed to yield sweetlip and the odd Spanish mackerel to 6kg.
| ONSHORE: The
coastal surf beaches were a joy to behold this week and it was one of those
times when you could honestly say the fishing was a dead set bonus. On the
North Shore, whiting were biting well in the surf gutters about 5km's north
of Teewah and tarwhine were an added bonus there. Tailor were active in
the waters around the shire boundary and further north around the rocks
at Double Island Point where jewfish, trevally, squire and snapper were
also on the chew. Over on the east side, the only reports of any note were
of dart and bream at Sunrise and Marcus beaches.
In the estuary, most of the whiting and flathead action (and the better quality fish) came from down at the river mouth. Shirley Blacka (above) was trying out a few soft plastics down at the mouth on Saturday morning when the 68cm (2kg) 'Lizard' she's pictured with swallowed one whole. She was armed with a Shimano spin combo loaded with 10lb braid.
Flathead were also responding well to drifted mullet fillets at the entrance to Noosa Waters while in the Woods Bays, and more specifically in the inner bay and near the Sheraton, trevally and chopper tailor were chasing surface poppers early in the morning. Mangrove jacks were on the prowl in that same area as local angler Alex Marshall (above) discovered before first light on Wednesday morning. Alex was working the waters with a Gladiator Prawn lure when it was taken by the 2.6kg 'Jack' he's posing with. Apart from that there were some quality bream on the bite near the Munna Point Bridge.
