Weekly Report 06/07/07

Things are really picking up here with some good catches outside and inside.
Snapper between 2kg and 5kg are about in good numbers off Scotts in about 30 to 40 metres. Trag, jew and a few tuskies are coming off the reefs in the same area. Leatherjackets are out there in huge numbers in about 50m from Hat head right up to Coffs Harbour. Small rat kingfish are around Fish Rock with some snapper but the current is strong through there. Trolling in front of the jail has been producing good tailor on metal spinners or garfish if you can get them. Green Island is a hot spot for fantastic bream if you can throw some bait in close, great fun on light gear.
Smoky Beach has fired up this week with some cracker whiting coming in with odd one up to 40 cm. Anthony Thoma from Cessnock was fishing for bream with pipis and a 2/0 hook and landed a classic 24.5kg jewfish off the Hat Head end of the beach. Bream and dart are in good numbers on the beach as well. A few tailor have been on Smoky and Gap beach most days. Rockhoppers are still amongst the bream and tailor with plenty around in the white water.
Black fish are in good numbers along the breakwall with the majority of these fish well over legal. Holidaymakers are having a great time with the bream being caught off the banks of the river. If you can get around the oyster racks expect some monsters. Some flathead are about for a mixed bag.
