I would be a bit suss at taking a 4.1m tinny over the bar at Noosa! in all conditions.... Try Point Cartwright instead.

you need to look at your wind charts for the past and upcoming week. you need to tackle them in summer . summer is windy!. i used to take a 14 ft cruise craft rogue with a 70 hp and even that sucked with a bit weather. i decked it out for tuna fishing in morton bay . got rid of the back to back seats put in swivel seats and fitted a 70 tank under the floor. i used about 100 of fuel every trip so take a spare tank. The best way to search for them is follow the sea gulls . if you see a large flock going in circles they are underneath them. they are your eyes for finding the schools. i use a tss4 spinning reel and a 9.9 comp blank custom built rod with 20 mono. get your self a few helco twister's 70gm slugs. and cast the hell out of it in the school you will know they are there because the water looks like it is boiling like a pot of water. after you cast retrieve like your life depended on it and hold on for the chase. u will need something a little more then a net to land them or swift tail crab is always fun but don't fall in. good luck don't get hurt its only fishing.

You are very lucky to live where yellowfin tuna can be caught near shore. We make 200 mile runs over here to get to them.
