Report 24/10/14

Post by Nicole Penfold » Fri Oct 24, 2014 11:37 am

Beaches
With the great weather around the beaches have been looking great with good clarity on the water at the moment. The whiting are starting to fire up and there have been some good reports over the last week with tailor, bream, flathead and good bags of whiting. Things are heating up! Pillies and slab baits have been taking their fair share but the smaller baits like worms, yabbies and pipis been doing some damage.

Rocks
The drummer and groper are starting to head for deeper water, but there are still some good numbers around if you put in the time.The Kingfish have been getting around in close at the moment; haven't heard of too many reports of the XL fish around but some nice table fish have been caught over the past week. Tailor and the odd snapper have been mixed in as well.One thing i haven't talked about much are the bread and butter species off the stones. Many anglers hit the rocks to chase smaller species like bream, flathead, trevs and many cod and wrasse species. They all make the stones a great place to look when honing skills or chasing a feed.

Rivers
There have been some great reports of flathead and whiting as the water gets warmer. I had a customer telling me the difference in water temps in shallow and deeper water up the creek this week was ranging from 19-26 degrees, and if you can find these areas where the warmer water is, surface and shallow running minnows are a great option. Finding the warmer waters can be the difference between coming home with nothing and coming home with a great bag of fish. Mulloway have been on the chew in the lower reaches, and time and persistence are always key when knuckling down with the ghosts of the river. Timing plays a key role in finding them, and dawn and dusk are always a plus when it comes to tides falling on low light periods.

Outside
Not too many reports this week there are plenty of kings about in close and the snapper are not far behind them. Mahi mahi have been getting about, and with the FAD back out there it will only take a few weeks and the bait and predators should be about in force. One customer was in this week talking about sighting some nice marlin out wide, and fingers crossed they'll come in close again this year so the guys with the smaller boats can have a shot at a iconic game fish for the east coast.

Till next time, tight lines
