As at Monday November 2, 2009
OFFSHORE: There wasn't a lot of activity on the local reefs this week. Conditions weren't too bad but the fishing was a bit slow, even for those who worked the wider reefs. Chardon's Wide produced only average reefies with Maori cod, snapper, pearl perch, morwong, gold band snapper and hussar boated but not in any real numbers or size. Local angler Robert Bray (below) was out there on Saturday on a Cougar One Maxi charter when he boated this 2.5kg snapper.
Greg Profke (below) was offered a spot on a boat heading for some supposedly good grounds out wide of Fraser Island over the weekend and jumped at the chance to work a bit of new territory. He was certainly pleased he took the chance too, coming back with the lovely 10.4kg red emperor he's pictured with. His bait? Whole pilchards.
Red Emperor
North Reef ran hot and cold, producing teraglin jewfish, moses perch, parrot fish and Maori cod but had bursts of activity when quality fish like yellowtail kingfish to 1.2 metres came on the bite.
The only other reports of note were from Sunshine Reef where sweetlip, bonito and Maori cod were on the bite.

ONSHORE: The coastal surf beaches were well worth a look this week with pleasant conditions encouraging perhaps a few more than average surf anglers to wet a line. The North Shore rewarded the faithful with tailor on the bite around dawn and dusk along the southern end of Teewah Beach. Whiting well spread with the elbow slappers coming from just north of Teewah township. Whiting were also active in the small surf between the rock groynes on Main Beach. Over on the east side, Sunrise and Marcus beaches produced bream, tarwhine and whiting, as did Sunshine Beach but with the added bonus there of tailor in the evenings. Last but not least, dart were schooling and on the chew at North Peregian Beach.
In the river, flathead activity slowed considerably but there was still a bit of action from the species down towards the river mouth. Dean Yarrow (above) was down there on Thursday working the bottom of the runout tide when his live herring bait caught the attention of the quality 'Lizard' he's pictured with. Dean released it again after a quick pic.
Mangrove Jack
Whiting were reported on the chew in the Woods Bays while Noosa Sound was the spot for a bit of trevally action around dawn and dusk. Small chrome slugs seemed to grab most of the attention this week while live fish baits like biddies, herring and live winter whiting worked well on both the 'Trevs' and, as you can see by the photo above, the odd mangrove jack. 'Millsy' from Noosaville fishing the Sound on Thursday night and was well rewarded when the 2kg 'Jack' he's pictured with came to the party. He was armed with an Abu combo loaded with 4.5kg braid and 6kg leader.
On the freshwater scene, the Lake MacDonald bass were responding to Blades around the Gazebo and in Bass Bay while at Borumba Dam they were chasing soft plastics around Eagles Bay and the start of the Kingham Arm.
