PAGE TWO- ONSHORE REPORT
|Brought to you by...|
| ONSHORE: Dart and
bream, and to a lesser extent whiting (and the odd chopper tailor) were
well spread on the Noosa North Shore this week. Troy Walton from Sunrise
Beach (below) fished the waters opposite Teewah township on Thursday afternoon
for whiting and chopper tailor and, using the tailor fillets as his draw
card, hooked and landed a 12kg mulloway or jewfish later that night. Across
the bay on the Noosa National Park headland, Alexandria Bay was the spot
for dart in good numbers, The Devils Kitchen yielded a few jewfish and the
rocks at north Sunshine Beach were a good option for bream, chopper tailor
and squire. Further south, chopper tailor were on the bite at Sunrise Beach
while Marcus Beach was the spot for whiting, dart and heaps of bream.
In the estuary, the river mouth produced bream (in numbers), hairtail, whiting, flathead, luderick, chopper tailor and the odd drummer. Billy Budd (below) fished the river mouth car park rocks throughout the week (through chilly winds, rain and sunshine) for the odd blackfish but finally hit the jackpot there late on Saturday afternoon when his 'Coolum Cabbage' accounted for half a dozen of these feisty fish. Billy's dogged determination and cheerful disposition, not to mention his winning catch, earned him this week's $50.00 Davo's Fish of the Week prize. For a taste of the luderick action, click on the video clip below.
|John Stojkovski (below) landed four good keeper bream and a 45cm flathead at the river mouth car park rocks around high tide on Thursday afternoon. He was using half pilchard baits. And Allison Powell from Sydney (below right) caught this 28cm bream at the base of the rock groyne on Saturday morning.|
|Matilda Davidson from Buderim (below) tempted
this 56cm flathead with a prawn at the river mouth on Tuesday. She was on
River Fishing Safari.
The Woods Bays were quiet with just the odd trevally, flathead and queenfish hitting on soft plastics and live baits while at Munna Beach, hairtail, trevally, bream and chopper tailor made the roll call. Local angler Mark Bisman (below left) picked up this hairtail there on a hard body lure on Tuesday morning.
|Hairtail were also on the prowl at the Munna Point Bridge, as were trevally. Tom Anstey (above) nailed this 40cm golden trevally there on Saturday afternoon using a whole prawn bait. Apart from that, bream and flathead were active in Weyba Creek, chopper tailor were schooling just out from the Noosa Marina and school jewfish were chasing live herring and paddle tail soft plastics around first light at the ski run. Further upriver, the mouth of Lake Cooroibah saw a bit of bream and flathead action while up between the lakes, around the Johns Landing area, the standout species was trevally. GT's were in the majority there.|
