OFFSHORE: It was another good week for the offshore brigade with light to moderate conditions prevailing either side of the weekend. Saturday and Sunday were far from perfect, but still fishable, with blustery 15 to 20 knot+ south easterly winds making a day on the more exposed reefs a bit uncomfortable for the smaller boats.
The bar was pretty good, although crossing too close to the small, afternoon low tides later in the week would not have been a wise move. If you haven't already seen it, the latest aerial footage and photos of the bar crossing (as at Friday August 26, 2016) can be viewed on the
Bar Report page. Double Island Point was certainly worth a shot this week, with snapper, moses perch, venus tusk fish, hussar, slate bream, Maori cod, pearl perch, black spot cod, amberjack, yellowtail kingfish and samson fish making the capture list. Ellys Dobson from the UK, above, is pictured with a jig caught amberjack, boated there on yesterday's Wild Thing 2 charter.
Venus Tusk Fish Black Spot Cod
While Matt Saad from Coomera (above) and Chris Freudenberg from Diddillibah (above right) boated a quality venus tusk fish and black spot cod on Sunday's charter.
Amberjack Snapper
Trekka 2 did a couple of runs to The Barwon Banks this week, coming back with snapper, pearl perch, amberjack, venus tusk fish, moses perch, gold spot wrasse, hussar and teraglin jewfish. Jake Durre (above left) boated an amberjack on Friday's charter and Bruce Clark (above) nailed a snapper on soft plastic on Wednesday.
It was either feast or famine at North Reef. On the good days the catch was cobia, snapper, moses perch, squire, hussar, reef shark, gold spot cod, grass sweetlip and goat fish. According to Paul Grenfell, above, there was so much baitfish in the water in close on Friday morning that he wasn't confident that his live yakka was going to attract any attention at all. Then this thumper cobia came to the party. His quality capture also won him this week's $50.00 Davo's Fish of the Week prize.
Snapper Pearl Perc h
The charter boys did well at North on the snapper and pearl perch. Robin Wescome from Tasmania (above left) boated a good snapper there on Friday's Wild Thing 2 charter while on separate Trekka 2 charters, Vladimir from Melbourne (above right) and Matt McGann from Sydney (below left) boated thumper pearl perch there.
Pearl Perch
Davo's Tackle World Noosa have everything you need to put a smile on that special man's face. Their great Father's Day sale is on until 6.00pm Sunday September 4, 2016. There's lots of bargains to be had so don't miss out. To view a sampling of the Dad's Day Deals on offer, see the short video above.
Pearl Perch and Maori Cod
Closer to home, Sunshine Reef rewarded the faithful with reasonable catches of squire, Maori cod, mackerel tuna, pearl perch, moses perch and the odd quality coral trout. Richard Kennedy from Cooroy (above) is pictured with a pearl perch and Maori cod from Friday's seven hour Cougar One charter which fished Sunshine Wide.
In Laguna Bay, squire and snapper were active around Jew Shoal and, together with the odd northern bluefin tuna, along the Hall Reef stretch. Plastics like 5" Berkley Gulp Jerk Shads or lightly weighted pilchards got good results. Early morning and late afternoon will increase your chances of a bigger snapper on these closer reefs .
