| OFFSHORE: What a
difference a day makes! Most offshore anglers were caught completely unawares
today when the blustery conditions, rough seas and 2m+ swell generated by
cyclone Ului over the weekend literally disappeared overnight. In fact,
a few hours after low tide this morning the bar crossing wasn't too bad
(considering the recent weather) and was quite manageable with a little
bit of care. Offshore, conditions were settled and certainly good enough
for trips as far out as the Barwon Banks where the swell was long and rolling
and no impediment to a good day on the water.
Noosa Blue Water Charters were one of the few boats that got out this morning and once across the bar they headed straight for 'The Banks' where, on the drift, they boated Maori cod, pearl perch, venus tusk fish and, as you can see by the photo above, quality amberjack. Anthony Kovac tempted this standout 18kg specimen with a pilchard/squid combo.
And on their way back they stopped off briefly in-close at Chardon's Reef where Patrick Lim (above), the leader of the small group who call themselves the 'Three Amigos', trolled up this 7kg Spanish mackerel on a hard bodied diving lure.
ONSHORE: There were no
reports from the coastal surf beaches apart from dart off the rock groyne
at the river mouth.
