| OFFSHORE: It was
a short week for the offshore brigade with strong, freezing southerlies
hammering the coastline from Friday onwards. Those boaties who focussed
on the middle reef belt and the closer reefs managed to make the most of
the run-up to the new moon phase before the blustery conditions set in.
As you can see by the photos above, the bar crossing wasn't much of an issue, but unless you were happy to just fish the bay the weekend was a wash out.
When fishable, North Reef was again well patronised, producing plenty of snapper in the 2kg to 4kg range, plus sweetlip, pearl perch, moses perch, teraglin jewfish and venus tusk fish. Michael Peterson from Victoria (above) was out there on Thursday on a 3/4 day Cougar One charter when he boated the 3.5kg snapper he's pictured with. And from the same charter, Damon Rankin and Grant Ahearn (below left) were happy to pose with their 2.5kg and 2.8kg snapper.
Offshore Noosa also ran a few trips to North Reef while the going
was good. James Lim from Canberra (above right) boated the standout 'Knobby'
on Thursday's excursion while Cameron McDonald from Melbourne (below) is
pictured with a grass sweetlip and snapper from the same half day charter.
Closer in, Arkright Shoal and Sunshine Reef produced snapper and venus tusk fish, Jew Shoal was the spot for snapper and Hall's Reef yielded sweetlip.
The Davo's Compleat Angler/Jarvis Walker 'Spot X' sale has now started and there are some great deals. For more information... CLICK HERE
