Weekly Report 31/7/09

Bruce at Dave’s Bait Shop says there are a few bream and flathead through the bottom reaches of the river and making their way upstream to Wardell and beyond. Blackfish are going particularly well in all the usual haunts, the Porpoise Wall, Prospect Bridge over North Creek and around Missingham bridge and Bruce finally has a little weed to sell.
Quite a few tailor around the local beaches with better schools up north of the bar, where the baitfish are more prolific. Salmon also entering the scenario now.
Good snapper on the close reefs but the wider you go, the more leatherjackets come into the equation.
The jackets are also off Evans Head but if you can avoid them there are some nice pearlies out wide and in closer the snapper seem to have picked up a little. Water inshore is clearing quickly so concentrate on the shallows early and late and head out towards the jackets as it gets brighter.
The beaches have plenty of good formations and are producing mainly bream, with not much in the way of baitfish or tailor. The odd patch of salmon moving through – let’s hope they keep moving!
Bream and flathead in the river with the odd horse of a whiting.
