Weekly Report 14/12/12

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Dec 14, 2012 2:27 pm

Striped tuna and mahi mahi 32-42 fathom reefs. Snapper on the 32s and a few kingies jigged up a bit wider but plenty of current. Heaps of flathead on the drifts.
Not a lot on the beaches apart from a few flathead and some whiting with the odd tailor in the afternoons.
The river is mostly flathead with a few more whiting on the bigger tides but 35cm pulls up most of them. A few jewfish behind the CBD at night on live herrings, Missingham Bridge has gone a bit quiet. Jacks on poddy mullet and sometimes herring in the main river. Mud crabs are going fair but should improve.
Big tides and a decent swell have stuffed up the Evans Head beaches and the offshore grounds at the moment. There were plenty of trag and even a few spotted mackerel offshore before the bar got crook but they should still be out there when things settle down.
Up Airforce Beach and around the headlands for some school jew and the odd bream.
Evans River has whiting, flathead and the odd bream.
