Weekly Report 27/07/07

According to Bruce at Dave’s Bait Shop, bream have been pretty good through the lower reaches with the best catches at night on mullet gut and chicken gut. Blackfish good in the usual haunts around Prospect Bridge, the Porpoise Wall and the ferry with bag limit catches regular. A few flathead, mostly from Wardell to Broadwater with the odd small soapie jewfish around Wardell.
Tailor still going great guns along South Beach and South Wall with even some fish biting through the day but quality catches at night on bonito fillets.
Outside conditions have been good with snapper and pearl perch on the wider grounds and plenty of leatherjackets in closer.
Similar story at Evans Head with the tailor slashing around in the surf from the headlands and up to Boundary Creek. Some bream persisting around the coffee rock and pipi beds with the odd dart and whiting.
Bream, blackfish and some whiting in the river but it’s very clear on the high tide.
Offshore catches have mainly focused on the leatherjacket hordes but there have been some snapper right in close very early and reds and pearlies out quite wide.
