Weekly Report 21/03/14

Post by Nicole Penfold » Fri Mar 21, 2014 3:52 pm

Spanish mackerel are still around, along with plenty of spotties, and some quality fish are being reported to around to 30kg. That's a good size for this time of year.

There are lots of mac tuna around, with plenty showing up inshore to provide fun for kayak anglers. Yellowfin are being caught in the deeper stuff around 30m+. Not many in close yet.

There are a few cobes around; we had a customer in a few days ago who caught 4 in a session. One of my colleagues then went out the next day and caught 3. The snapper are starting to slow down a bit, but hopefully they’ll fire up in the next couple of weeks as temperatures begin to drop.

In the rivers the flathead fishing is good, with a lot of people getting out there and catching them. There's also the odd whiting being caught on the surface. The bream have done their run up to the mouth of the river now, and a lot of people getting them up on the beaches along with whiting.

We're having a decent run of tailor, and slowly but surely we're seeing more heavier fish of around 3-3.5kg (one guy got an 8kg fish). The tailor are also a favourite prty for the likes of Spanish, cobia and kingfish, drawing these bigger fish in close. It makes for good fishing off the stones.

The freshwater scene is still dismal from the lack of rain, so the salt is definitely the way to go.
