Summary November 2017

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.

Don't want your Facebook post reproduced here? Please contact a committee member.

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. You can see our public Page here:

10 days of foul weather then...

Then, another ten days of strong E-SE winds, with one or two (just) suitable offshore days, also lots of rain.







So 30 days in November, and 20 of them had foul weather. Little wonder that this summary is much briefer than usual. Interestingly, the sea temperature was lower at the end of the month than at the start. Surely December's going to be better, but as I write this, at Sunshine Beach on 30 November, the rain is bucketing down and the wind is 15knots or so from the ESE! Get out at every opportunity, and have a great Christmas.
