Weekly Report 21 Sep 07

Post by Brad » Fri Sep 21, 2007 4:40 pm

The mouths of many of the creeks running into Halifax bay have been producing good Barra recently. Reports of quality whiting are also coming from these areas. The Northern beaches and the mouth of the Haughton are still producing some good soft plastic sessions on flathead and smaller blue salmon.

The creeks are starting to heat up and so too the barra and jacks with reports coming from all over the place. The Hinchinbrook Channel has been on fire lately however there is a lot of undersize barra (rats) between the legal ones. This is all good news for the coming years. The good wet we had early this year might have done the trick. The quality of the barra and jacks in the southern creeks like the Haughton, Morrissey and barra has has been quite good of late. Reports of very good grunter have been welcome news this week with some exceptional fish starting to show up around the spit at Cape Bowling Green and the usually locations around Cape Cleveland. The rumble patches between the main land and
Magnetic Island has also been producing the odd good grunter. The creek most consistent off late for good grunter has been Morrissey, remember look for the hard patches with shell extending up on to the bank. What's on the exposed bank is often what's under the water. There has still been very little to report in the way of mud crabs.

Over the last week or so the weather gods have been shining with some great conditions out on the water. Recent reports of Coral Trout have been rather slow with only a few here and there in the catches of the reef fishers. However the Red Emperor, Large and Small Mouth Nannygai have been on fire with report of very good numbers and some exceptional size fish been landed recently. There has been some very good cobia caught recently also while fishing the same locations for reds. Although the Spanish mackerel catches closer to the coast appear to have eased slightly the catches of these fish have been good also around many of the further offshore shoal areas which hold bait. One common thread however is that most of the spanish mackerel have been down deep.

Try chasing a few grunter around any one of the Capes, (Upstart, Bowling Green and Cleveland) the weather looks ok and the night tides look ideal and if you are a Footy Fan then I guess Friday night is the only time to go. Saturday night "GO THE COWBOYS".
