OFFSHORE: It was as if the weather gods liked
last week so much they ordered a carbon copy or a mirror image re-run,
with blustery conditions from Tuesday through Thursday, then light to
moderate variable easterlies with a moderate swell from Friday onwards.
And like last week, it just got better, with glassed out morning sessions
on Sunday and Monday.
Remember: An interim snapper closure is in place from February 15, 2011 to March 31, 2011. Snapper, pearl perch and teraglin jewfish cannot be taken in any Queensland east coast waters during this six week period.
|Further upstream, trevally (av. 1kg) and bream
were on the bite around the second ski run above Tewantin and mangrove jacks
were active in and around Lake Cooroibah. Local lass Emilia Simpson (above
right) was fishing the First Lake with her mum and dad on Saturday morning
when her live herring bait was monstered by the 2kg 'Jack' she's pictured
The Munna Point and Sheraton Bridges were a good option for trevally and mangrove jacks while the back of the Sound produced the odd tarpon. Results from the lower estuary were otherwise pretty average although Jake Lowe (above) did get a long sought after result in the outer Woods Bay when he caught and released a 65cm jewfish on Sunday morning. Jake got his result around the top of the tide using a River2Sea Izumi 'Gastronomic' 3.5" Pin Tail soft plastic.
Jacks were also on the prowl in the stretch of water between the lakes but with the added bonus of flathead and, as you can see by the photo above, barramundi. Local gun angler Peter 'Thommo' Thompson and his son Riley hit the jackpot there on Saturday morning when, apart from catching and releasing a few 'Jacks' and 'Lizards', Thommo's favourite and faithful River2Sea Min 88f deep diver drew the attention of a hungry 55cm 'Barra'.
Thankfully young Riley had his camera with him so was able to record this relatively rare catch before releasing his prize.
