Cooler weather great for Noosa offshore fishing

With the cooler weather we have experienced over the last week, anglers have had to dust off the old woolly jumper before heading out for a fish, the offshore gang have had a field day with light offshore winds and little swell we have seen some great fish hitting the decks.

Starting at Sunshine Reef there has been a good mixed bag including squire, maori cod, sweetlip, the odd tuna, pearlies & cod.

North Reef and Chardon’s reef have produced snapper, pearlies, moses perch, sweetlip, and tuna.

TT Vector jigs and Storm Koika jigs have been very effective on a variety of species.

Up towards Double Island a few exceptional red emperor have been taken over the last week with reports of good size pearlies, snapper and teraglin jew.

In the river there are still heaps of bream being caught throughout the system.

The river mouth has been producing some nice specimens on strip baits and mullet gut.

Zman Crusteaz have been one of the lures of choice along with Keitech Crazy Flappers.

Flathead have also been plentiful with a lot of good sized flathead being caught along the Gympie Terrace stretch and around the frying pan.

A few larger fish have been caught around the current line, dog beach and river mouth.

Live baits and soft plastic like the Shads Prawn have been working well, trolling hard body lures is another effective method and covers a lot of ground.

Good sized big eye and giant trevally along with tailor at Woods Bay early morning and late arvo on surface lures.

Golden trevally have gone a bit quiet over the last week however the odd one being caught on small micro jigs and soft plastics.

There has seen some quality Luderick coming from the rocks, numbers haven’t been huge but the quality of fish have been really good.

The rock wall at the river mouth has been the main haunt with a mixture of weed and cabbage working the goods.
