Weekly Report 26/10/07

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Oct 26, 2007 1:00 pm

The Dave Irvine Memorial invitational snapper catch and release comp last weekend produced an astounding 345 snapper caught, photographed and released, all on soft plastics. Biggest fish was 87cm or around 12kg. The winning snapper of the local Fish of the Year comp weighed in at 12kg – dare I say shallow water and soft plastics? Some very nice pearl perch also on the menu along with the usual reef fare.
Beach gutters fishing well for whiting with the odd bream and tailor to make things interesting. Salmon and dart are plentiful by-catch.
Flathead are running well in the estuaries with fish to 7kg being captured and returned to the water. Plenty of smaller males searching for females. Good whiting also in the lower estuaries along with school jew on structure at night.
