OFFSHORE: It was a bit
of a patchy week for the offshore brigade with North Reef being the only
producer of note. The predominantly northerly winds did tend to create
a bit of slop and chop at times but most days were fishable with little
swell to speak of. The fish, unfortunately, were a tad picky and was hard
work to get a feed. Having said that, squire were in good numbers on 'North'
with cobia, moses perch, pearl perch, sweetlip and snapper making up the
rest of the catch.

boated a number of whiting (top weight 450gm) on in the Woods Bays on Thursday
using live prawns as his draw card while Dave Nettleton (above right) christened
his new Swing Angler
fishing kayak by landing a few elbow slappers (top weight 600gms) around
Munna Point and the Woods Bays on Monday.
Apart from that, trevally (to 2.5kg) were working the bait schools up around the Tewantin ski runs and mangrove jacks were on the prowl along the back of Noosa Sound and, as you can see by the photo above, in the deeper waters opposite the Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club. Wally Dawson boated this thumper 3kg specimen there on Thursday afternoon using a live poddy mullet as his draw card. He was using a Shimano Baitrunner 6500 threadline combo loaded with 20lb line.
