Summary April 2018

Facebook provides an excellent and simple facility for conducting group discussions in text form, including unbeatable support for adding still pictures, movies and "shares". As a result, with our Facebook Group we have brilliant media-rich communication within Noosa Yakkers, with lots of info and useful material appearing quickly on our Group because it's so easy to post, to view and to make comments. Not on Facebook? I encourage you to dip your paddle in the Facebook sea and give it a try. If the oldest members of Noosa Yakkers can do it probably you can. Not convinced? Don't despair. We have no intention of dropping our tried and true Google Group email or our indispensable blog of Trip Reports and generally useful yak fishing info. But if you're not on Facebook, you're missing out on useful information.

To help retain contact with our established world wide blog audience we've decided to publish this monthly summary of our fishing activity. The info has been extracted from our closed (private) Facebook Group. The included link to each Facebook post will work only for members of the Noosa Yakkers Facebook Group. Constructive ideas to improve this summary and/or volunteered editorial skills are welcomed.

This monthly brief summary of fishing trip information within the Noosa Yakkers area is only a fraction of the useful and interesting info and banter appearing on our Facebook Group. Our public Page is here:

Overview, weather and species

Noosa sea temperature 01Apr18: 26.7°C/80°F and at 30Apr18: 25.6°C/78°F

Fish species mentioned or featured in Noosa Yakkers' reports this month in Noosa area: longtail tuna, snapper, mackerel tuna, giant trevally, grass sweetlip, spotted mackerel, yellowfin tuna,

Weather: Windy start, but the intrepid team sprocket got out early to kick off the month. Then we had sporadic days which allowed access to offshore fish. ANZAC Day was a cracker with many getting offshore and at least six species captured and immediately afterward we had spotty mac mayhem event before the wind got up again.

So, an excellent month, well deserved after two ordinary months directly before. Probably the longtails will hang around until at least the end of June, and possibly we'll see more of the spotty macs in May, as has happened several times in the past.

Given the few opportunities this month to get offshore, or even fish in the rivers, there were some great fish taken. Historically, April has proven to be our peak month for Longtail Tuna catches so let's hope that the weather allows us to get amongst them.
