Report 24/06/14

Post by Nicole Penfold » Tue Jun 24, 2014 8:56 pm

A week in the fishing game is all that it can take to turn the tables and this has occurred recently. With the aid of a long awaited decent weather pattern anglers have had plenty of opportunity to get out amongst the action.

As it often happens at this time of year the reef activity features heavily and there has been some excellent reports of late. On the bottom fishing side of things there has been a plethora of species on the chew including coral trout, large mouth nannygai, tea-leaf trevally, spangled emperor, sweetlip, slatey bream, cod species and cobia. Steve Adamson aboard the Dragon Lady Charter said the good weather enabled them to fish wide and deep this last week and they sourced the nannygai in good numbers and plump sizes up to 8kg. He basically said it was pretty easy fishing for a change and the quality of fish was impressive.

The other news humming around the outer reefs is the multitude of Spanish mackerel getting around according to the light tackle game boats. Sizes are ranging from a few kilo up to 8kg and catching bag limits is child’s play at the moment. It appears we may be in for a bumper mackerel season if this form continues.

Along the coast inshore wrecks, isolated patches and reefs are producing a variety of fish for the small boat brigade including big queenfish, school mackerel, grey mackerel, Spanish mackerel, big eye trevally, golden trevally and bludger trevally. Baits, jigging and trolling lures have all been used to great effect. Even the bottom dwelling fish have been quite active including bar cheek trout and large mouth nannygai. You don’t need to travel vast distances to experience a good fishing experience at the moment.
The rivers have done it a bit tougher and the winter species are dominating catches including grunter, big fat bream, sickle fish and feather bream. There’s been some mid sized trevally and queenfish about but not in big numbers.

The weather might be a bit spasmodic in the coming days but at least it won’t be a write off as we have experienced in recent weeks. The inshore and offshore reefs is definitely where the action is thickest at the moment.
