ONSHORE: There were plenty of anglers working the bottom end of Teewah Beach day and night over the weekend but there was no feedback from there. Further north, whiting, bream and tarwhine were on the bite either side of Monkeys (about 9.5km's) north of Teewah and chopper tailor were active in the surf gutters opposite the camp grounds. On the east side, the spotties were within casting distance of Paradise Caves at the northern end of Sunshine Beach.
Mangrove Jack
In the estuary, bream and flathead were on the bite at the river mouth and, together with mangrove jacks, in the Frying Pan. Around the corner in the Woods Bays, big tea leaf trevally were on the boil, hammering the schools of small bait but unresponsive to most lures with the exception of Sugapens and 60mm and 65mm 'Crystal Live' Prawns. Mangrove jacks were also active there as local lad Nic Brewer (above) found when he worked that area with a 3" Gulp soft plastic minnow on 6lb line around 7.30pm on Friday night. Nic's fish tipped the scales at 2.2kg and won him the $50.00 Davo's Fish of the Week prize.
Mangrove Jack Flathead
And Tony Zahn, above left, caught jacks to 1.7kg in the Frying Pan, the Woods Bays and the back of Noosa Sound over the weekend. He got equally good results from Gladiator Prawns and whole pilchard baits. The back of Noosa Sound and Weyba Creek produced flathead, whiting, bream, moses perch and trevally this week. Tremayne Fuller (above right) fished Weyba Creek with pilchard baits on Saturday with his dad and came back with two lizards to 1.25kg
Whiting
Still in Weyba, Alan 'Natta' Symes (above) drifted the upper reaches of the creek near the motorway bridge on Thursday afternoon and, using live prawns as his draw card, boated a small esky full of quality whiting to 560gm. Did I say there was a lot going on there? Drew Kimberley from Torquay in Victoria (below) worked the waters around Weyba Hole on Tuesday afternoon while on a Noosa River Fishing Safari. His 45cm trevally went for an Atomic soft plastic.
Trevally
Along the Noosaville stretch, the structure around the Boathouse Restaurant on Gympie Terrace was the spot for thumper bream in numbers while bream, flathead and trevally were active around the house boats at Tewantin and the first ski run. Further upriver, the waters either side of Lake Cooroibah were good for mangrove jacks, grunter bream, GT's, big eye trevally and flathead with the best results coming after dark. Boreen Point was unusually busy with bream and flathead on the bite there and (together with jacks, bass and tarpon) up in Kin Kin Creek. On the freshwater scene, the Eagles Nest at Lake Borumba saw some saratoga action while the Lake MacDonald bass were busy in Bass Bay, Three Ways, Fry's Run, West Leg and the Botanical Gardens.
