|OFFSHORE: Light to
moderate variable easterlies and 0.5m to 1.0m swell. It pretty much says
it all. We had eminently fishable conditions on our local reefs
all week and with the bar behaving itself, the offshore brigade (in all manner of boats) enjoyed conditions that were as good as they get for the start of Spring.
The more distant locations were well and truly on the target list. Double Island Point was a goer, producing snapper, moses perch, hussar, amberjack, gold band snapper, Maori cod, venus tusk fish and lots of quality pearl perch. Mikey Ridings from Brisbane (above) boated a good amberjack on Sunday's 'Wild Thing' charter to D. I. And Mark Powell from Brisbane (below) is pictured with a fat Maori cod from a full day Trekka 2 charter up that way, also on Sunday.
A few of the lads from the Noosa Boat Fishing Club tackled The Hards today and came back with pearl perch, venus tusk fish and their bag limit of quality snapper. Closer in, North Reef (which was quite pleasant, with just a slight southerly current) was the spot for snapper, cobia, teraglin jewfish, moses perch, Maori cod, mowong and hussar. Joe Stafford from Melbourne (below) boated a quality cobia there on Wednesday morning's half day 'Wild Thing' charter.
Further over, Chardon's Reef was the spot for gold spot cod, quality pearl perch, moses perch, venus tusk fish, snapper, hussar and teraglin jewfish. Mark Hewett from Melbourne (below) was more than happy to pose with a couple of snapper from Wednesday morning's half day Trekka 2 charter to Chardon's.
Noosa Blue Water Charters scheduled a couple of half day and three quarter day trips to Massoud's Reef this week, coming back with snapper, Maori cod, sweetlip, moses perch, gold spot cod and lots of quality pearl perch. Andrew Fielder, Danielle Kaiden and Sam Fielder from Sydney (below) did a good job presenting some of the pearlies boated on Friday morning's Cougar One charter for the camera. Hard to get them all lined up but we got there in the end.
And young Rebeka Tokovic (below), who was visiting Noosa from Brisbane, did well with a rather slippery Maori cod from the same Cougar One charter.
Sunshine Reef produced mowong, snapper, grass sweetlip, striped sea perch and Maori cod. Laguna Bay was quiet, apart from the odd lipper at Big Hall's.
