Weekly Report 28/03/14

Post by Nicole Penfold » Fri Mar 28, 2014 1:21 pm

We’ve had a lot of rain over the past week and a half, which is great for the health of our fisheries.

We’ve had a reasonable Spanish mackerel run, and they’re still sticking around along with the spotties. However, with the dirty water and cooler temperatures the mackerel catches should taper off and be replaced with tailor. I’ve also heard of a small run of salmon.

Tuna been about – stripies, bonito, yellowfin, mac and longtail. The yellowfin are being taken quite wide towards the 40-50m mark. The longies, stripes and mac tuna have all been balling up together, averaging around 5-10kg, and are being taken around that 20-40m mark.

With the Spanish mackerel numbers starting to wane, more anglers are turning to bottom bouncing. Catches are consisting of trag, pearl perch and snapper, along with the odd tuskfish and goatfish.

Kingfish, amberjack and samsonfish are all getting caught up around the Lighthouse in about 30-40m of water.

Before the rain the rivers were productive, but now that we’ve had rain things will be more unpredictable. Yes, you can have wild sessions at the mouth after lots of rain, but it’s about being there at the right time. Best of luck!
