OFFSHORE: Up until last night there was literally
nothing (zilch, zero, nada) to report as far as the offshore scene was
concerned but with the fresh to strong south easterlies and the 2m+ swell
dropping away on Sunday, today shaped up quite firmly as an option. Not
many boats took advantage of the improvement in conditions but
Fishing Offshore Noosa, for one, hit North
Reef this morning and, although it was still a tad lumpy, got their clients
onto teraglin jewfish, moses perch, venus tusk fish, mowong and hussar.
The only other report was of a few small snapper (to 2kg) out on Jew Shoal.
The photo above, taken this afternoon at the river mouth, shows how quickly things have settled after the week long blow.
ONSHORE: Conditions on the North Shore coastal beach stretch were less than ideal and there were few surf anglers in evidence. Those who gave it a go weren't overly excited about the results with a few dart on the bite just past Teewah and the odd flathead and whiting taken in the waters before the camp grounds. The beach stretch either side of the river mouth was good for whiting while on the east side whiting and bream were active (but not in numbers) from Sunshine to Marcus.
The estuary was a lot more lively this week with a wider range of species on the bite. Flathead were again in numbers down at the river mouth on the runout tide and tailor were on the bite there after dark. Whiting were well spread, going for live yabbies and worms in Weyba Creek, live prawns in the Frying Pan and the river mouth and, as below, lures after dark around the Woods Point. Riley Thomson caught and released this 37cm fish on a Gladiator Slim Jim on Saturday night.
The trevally were back on the prowl around the back of Noosa Sound and the Munna Point Bridge area. Six year old Eden McShannon (below) was fishing at the bridge on Sunday morning when her prawn bait was taken by this 1kg specimen.
The Munna Point Bridge was also the spot for this week's better quality bream as Steven Hughes from Cooroy (below) found early on Sunday morning. Steven began working the waters with pilchard baits after midnight and had a productive session from 2am onwards, during which time he landed the couple of standout 800gm and 1kg fish he's pictured with.
Bryce Davis (below) has been quietly fishing the stretch of water around the back of Noosa Sound from the banks over the past month with Gladiator Prawn lures and during this time has had some great sessions on school jewfish (earlier in the month) and then in the last week trevally and then last night he caught two mangrove jacks each weighing exactly 2kg.
Other 'Jack' hot spots were at the Sheraton Bridge at night, plus (around dusk) the first ski run at Tewantin and the mouth of Lake Cooroibah, where live winter whiting baits worked best. The top of the lake was good for whiting and trevally.
