| ONSHORE: The lower
estuary continued to produce the bread and butter species with flathead,
bream, trevally and whiting in good numbers down at the river mouth. There
was also the odd school jewfish on the prowl there. Jennifer Penny from
Melbourne (below) caught and released a 35cm bream and, on a live herring,
this 70cm jewfish at the mouth on Wednesday morning. She was on a
Noosa River Fishing Safari. Whiting were also
biting at the Dog Beach.
Noosa River Fishing Safaris were on fire this week. Riza Agas from Sydney (below left) caught and released this quality cale cale trevally on Thursday afternoon's charter. While on the same afternoon excursion, Chris O'Hare from the Gold coast (below right) is pictured with a quality golden trevally.
|And Tami from Noosa River Fishing Safaris (below)
glams up the usual 'person with fish' photo with a 57cm flathead which she
caught on a live herring bait.
The Frying Pan was still good for whiting (live yabby and small surface poppers) while bream, moses perch and estuary cod were active around the back of Noosa Sound and, together with the odd mangrove jack, in Weyba Creek. Local lad Bodhi Risby-Jones (below) caught this 50cm mangrove jack in upper Weyba Creek around 9.00am (in the latter half of the run-in tide) on Sunday morning. He was using a 100mm Z-Mann Swimmer soft plastic as his draw card.
Further upriver, the Gympie Terrace stretch produced flathead, bream, mangrove jacks and whiting while the waters around the Noosa Marina and along the first ski run yielded mangrove jacks, flathead, bream, estuary cod, big-eye trevally and small (up to 1kg) GT's. On the freshwater scene, Paul Fleming from the Lake MacDonald Freshwater Fishing Club reports that the lake level is down to 61% and the fishing fairly slow. Bass Bay was hard work with mostly undersized bass going for blades while Three Ways had just the odd bass to 38cm. Bass to 43cm were chasing spinnerbaits at the Tractor Shed.
