Weekly Report 16 Jun 10

Post by Brad » Wed Jun 16, 2010 5:56 pm

The past week has certainly been a challenge as the trademark southeasterly winds take a strangle hold on the region. Since the weekend all offshore aspirations have been put on hold which has been a pity because the fish were charging along nicely to this point. Once the weather settles again anglers can be assured species such as coral trout, nannygai and emperor will be eager to bite. Also noticably the spanish mackerel are now definitely on our local reefs in good numbers and a concerted crack at these pelagics should be high on the agenda next time you hit the water. Also if you are prepared to travel that bit wider there are some quality yellowfin tuna entering the paddocks from off the shelf. Tariling around the ever reliable Halco 190D lures are doing their job beautifully on these highly sought after fish.

As to be expected there has been a lot of traffic up our local rivers and estuaries due to strong winds outside. There has been plenty of action with winter species really starting hitting their straps as the cooler days settle in. Plump sized bream, medium sized jewfish, grunter, tarpon, trevallies of all kinds and queenfish have been partial to mowing down a live sardine or hardy head bait particulalry on those incoming tides. On the outgoing tides and with baits strategically placed amongst the snags there still are quite a few good sized jacks and estuary cod prepared to smash any foreign bait in their territory. Surprisingly there are still a few barra kicking around and feeding spasmodically but they are not super aggressive. Their days are now numbered before they will literally fall into their winter slumber and they'll become a rare catch over the cooler months.

With a not so bright forecst predicted I suspect most of the reports in the coming week will continue to flood in from the river and estuary action. There maybe some opportunity for bigger vessels to head offshore but it will be under some duress I highly suspect.To get amongst the serious action on offer give us a call ......
