Reef anglers reap rewards
SUNSHINE Reef was the popular destination this week producing the standout results including parrot fish, Moses perch, a few mahi mahi and a few coral trout.
At North Reef there have been plenty of juvenile cobia, squire, mahi mahi, pearl perch, Moses perch, and coral trout.
Not too many boats ventured past the middle reef belt, but those that attempted the trip found conditions quite fishable and caught red throat emperor, Moses perch, quality parrot fish and quality amberjack.
The coastal surf beaches were quiet this week with reports of a few schools of dart and whiting moving through Sunrise to Castaways Beaches. There have been tailor at the river mouth after dark and better size bream along the snags.
Flathead have been in numbers in the river this week, especially at the river mouth, and after dark at Munna Bridge and the Sheraton Bridge, with many catch and release reports of quality fish, on pilchards, soft plastics and lures.
Mudcrabs have been active through the system, Lake Cooroibah, Noosa Waters canals and Weyba Creek all producing good muddies.
On the freshwater scene, Saratoga have been active at Borumba Dam, especially in the warmer, shallower reaches responding to surface lures.
