OFFSHORE: Light to moderate variable westerlies
dominated the offshore scene this week with a warm northerly flavour in
the first half followed by cooler south westerlies in the latter half.
Mornings were best ahead of the often more blustery afternoon sea breezes
and with the swell continuing around the 1.2m mark it was another good
week on the water.
| ONSHORE: Apart
from a brief surge on Friday the coastal surf beaches were pretty flat for
most of the week. There were still a few productive gutters along Teewah
Beach on the North Shore however with whiting and quality dart schooling
in the waters between the 2nd and 3rd cuttings. Further up, whiting (to
41cms) were on the bite just past Teewah and bream and tarwhine were active
about 8kms north of there. Tailor (to 3kg) were landed earlier in the week
although just where was not divulged. Tarwhine and whiting were biting between
the rock groynes on Main Beach and over at Sunrise Beach.
In the estuary, flathead and bream were on the bite in the stretch from the river mouth (where tailor were responding to whole pilchard baits around dusk) to Munna Point. Darryl Buttenshaw and Adrian Brumm (above) did an overnighter in the Munna Point area after which they weighed in these 1.5kg 'Lizards' and 800gm bream. Their baits were live herring.
Whiting were going for live yabbies in the Frying Pan and around the Munna Flats area opposite the caravan park while most of this week's pelagic activity (tailor, tarpon, jewfish and trevally) was in the stretch from the Noosa Harbour Marina to the top of first ski run. Alex Cameron (above) was trolling a purple deep diving hard body lure just out from the Marina on Sunday when it was taken by the 45cm 'Trev' he's pictured with.
There were also a few trevally on the bite in the Woods Bays earlier in the week while in the back of the Sound, near the Lions Park, young Henry Collins (above) got the shock of his life when his prawn bait was taken by the 3kg blubberlip bream he's posing with. Henry was fishing there on Tuesday with his dad and needed just a little bit of help to bring it in.
Mangrove jacks were on the prowl at the entrance to Noosa Waters over the weekend and, as per the photo above, in the lower Weyba Creek area earlier in the week. Bob Jeynes from Davo's Compleat Angler was wading the waters just up from Weyba Hole last Monday night when his Gladiator Prawn lure was monstered by the 3kg (est) fish in the photo. He was armed with a Nitro rod and a Shimano Stradic 2500 reel loaded with 1kg Crystal Fireline and 16lb FC Rock leader.
