As at Monday December 3, 2007
Ah well, fresh to strong south easterlies got the week off to a dismal start
and pretty much made offshore a no go until Friday morning. From then on,
however, it was a green light for the offshore brigade and those who managed
to get time off and get out over the bar reported more activity from the
bottom dwellers than has been the case recently.
Pearl Perch and Moses Perch were the common catch along the middle reef belt, which was about as far as anyone cared to venture this week. In addition to those species, North Reef produced Snapper, Northern Bluefin Tuna, Parrot Fish and Coral Bream while at Chardon's Reef the extras were Scarlet Sea Perch, Snapper, Squire, Maori Cod and Parrot.
Noosa Plasterers held
their staff Christmas outing on Cougar
Too on Friday, treating their work crew to a full day at Chardon's
Reef where, as you can see by the photos above, they did well on the reefies.
'Skip' (top photo) came up with the standout of the trip when he boated
the 6kg+ Scarlet Sea Perch he's posing with while Luke and Mick did well
on the Maori Cod and Pearl Perch. Closer in at Sunshine Reef the bonus
species were Sweetlip and Mowong.
Oh, and if you haven't already checked it out, the latest Noosa River Bar crossing photo was posted last Wednesday.
