Report 22/2/19

Post by Nicole Penfold » Fri Feb 22, 2019 10:56 am

The question on every blue water fisher’s lips; where are the Mackerel off Grassy and the Dolphin Fish out wide around the FAD. We have beautiful water condition, warm and cobalt but apart from the odd Spanish up North it remains a mystery. It’s not all bad news there though; Dylan Perry and his mate Lockie landed a nice 14kilo Cobia off Grassy. There are reports wider in about 100 meters good quality Pearl Perch are being landed. Out in front of the Jail the fishing has been slow with a few small Blacks hooked early in the week. Fish Rock is loaded with Rat Kings and you will battle to get a legal unit.

There were some good results out of the river through the week with a few Jewfish young Cobia and a few Kings caught from the end of the Break wall, both the north and south side up to the Boat Ramp. There are enough Flathead to keep you interested throughout the river system with plenty of legal Bream and Moses Perch along the walls. Back Creek produced some respectable Whiting and Flathead towards the Causeway in those big tides we had last week.

From all reports the rock hoppers are having a very lean time of it; we are all hoping the big seas will stir things up and bring the bite back on.

On the beaches it’s kind of the same story with no gutters to speak of the fishing has been tough apart from a few Whiting, Bream, Dart and Flathead on Smoky, Gap and Main Beach.
