| OFFSHORE: There were plenty of
opportunities for the offshore boys to hit the local reefs this week with
light to moderate (5 to 15 knot) variable easterlies dominating right through
until early Saturday afternoon, at which point the forecast strong (20 to
30 knot) southerly change curtailed further outside activity.
As has been the case recently, there weren't any trophy fish in amongst what were mostly average size reefies. Neither were there any reports from out wide with most boaties focussing on the middle reef belt where North Reef and Massoud's reefs produced cod, squire, moses perch, venus tusk fish and teraglin jewfish. 'The Hill' also yielded those species plus a few others such as pearl perch, sweetlip and the odd keeper mahi mahi. Chardon's Reef was also worth a look as Glenn, Lofty and Graham from the Noosa Boat Fishing Club (above) discovered. The three Amigos headed out that way on Saturday morning and, although they copped a bit of a drenching later in the morning, they were happy to boat a respectable catch of: six snapper, a sweetlip and three Maori cod.
All their fish went for pilchards or prawns, with no results from octopus baits, garfish fillets or soft plastics. They also reported two possible Spaniard cut-offs.
Closer to home, Sunshine Reef was the spot for grass sweetlip, squire, Maori cod and venus tusk fish. In the bay, Little Hall's Reef produced the odd lipper.
It might have been quiet on the offshore scene but the river and lakes were firing with excellent whiting, jacks, threadfin, toga's and yellowbelly on the bite...
