Weekly Report 14/9/12

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Sep 14, 2012 12:45 pm

Brett at Ballina Bait and Tackle says there have been a few whiting up around Rileys Hill, with most of the school flathead from Wardell tro Broadwater. Bream have been spread out all over the place and the lower river has been very quiet. Bigger tides over the new moon will make the river a bit more discoloured and the bream should become a little braver. Blackfish have slowed a little but persistence will still pay off, Brett says. The big bronze luderick that can often be found at this time of year have been pretty rare so far but there’s still a little time in the season. ‘Wardell whiting’, AKA school jew of 25cm to 60cm, have been taking bait and soft plastics around the highway bridge. Emigrant Creek has been fishing quite nicely with estuary perch, flathead, bream and even the odd mangrove jack. A few jewfish have been caught out on the breakwalls with one or two tailor, mostly choppers and some better tailor up towards Lennox.
Offshore has been pretty quiet in close with some mixed bags but better snapper on the 42 and 48 fathom reefs with reds to about 5kg and some pearl perch.
I’ve been away from Evans Head all week and today (Fri) there’s a 20-knot southerly blowing so I can tell you nothing.
