OFFSHORE – Finally we are getting blessed with some good patterns of weather not just a day here and there. but as i write this the report for the weekend is looking grim. SE winds are predicted from lunch time tomorrow and slowly easing off next week.
anyway the report this week has been great. lots of fish getting caught. coral trout, sweetlip and parrot from murphys reef. good parrot and sweetlip from the blinker. sweetlip, maori cod from coolum reef. more quality sweetlip, maori cod, mackeral and coral trout from sunshine reef. top of the banks there was as usual red throat sweetlip, sweetlip and the odd parrot. long tail tuna and mack tuna on 15-25 g slugs in laguna bay and out off mooloolaba to old woman island. spanish mackeral around the blinker, outer gneerings, caloundra wide and off chardons reef. mainly on slowly trolled deeper diving lures. few schools of tuna on the bottom end of sunshine. I finally got offshore and did an overnighter last friday night. stayed in close at sunshine and had a few spots at coolum id never fished and we pretty much got our limit on sweetlip from 30-60cm, maori cod, cobia, scarlet, and a few other bits and pieces. my mate got a 4kg coral trout and we could of filled our esky up with snapper between 35 – 70cm. not long to wait now though.
ESTUARY – mangrove jack and estuary cod from parrerra bridge. trevally around kawana island. trevally and queenfish in currimundi lake early morning on poppers. whiting and good flathead from picnic point. bream and whiting off chambers island. few jacks at night on live bait in petrie creek. whiting around the frying pan at noosa. good tailor in woods bay and ive heard some good jew from the beaches along with dart and bream from sunshine beach to coolum.
