Weekly Report 13/07/07

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jul 13, 2007 1:19 pm

Conditions improved a little at the end of last week so our holidaymakers could fish without being blown of their rock.
Blackfish are here and there in big numbers. These hard-fighting tasty fish are along the north and south breakwalls biting on green weed and cabbage in moving water. It is shoulder to shoulder around the Jew Bite at the moment with most fish well over legal. Good bream are on the bite in the river and some are cracker fish. Shez from Woy Woy hooked one well over a kilo on her favourite bream bait, blackfish gut. Local James got among the trevally on the end of the wall with the best going around 4kg. A few tailor are making their way into the river, good fun on light gear.
Bream have slowed down off the rocks but tailor are about in good numbers. Good reports from Hat Head coming in as well. Fishing the beaches has been good with the run of blue nose whiting continuing off Smoky on worms and pipis. There have been a few tailor of the beach with the odd bream.
Not much is happening outside mainly due to the windy conditions. Terry Adey and his crew from Lake Macquarie have fished Grassy and Scotts in about 30m for some quality snapper with the best going a brutal 9 kilos using pilchards. Leatherjackets are still in masses out past 30m.
We should know within weeks if the radical decision by the Conservation Council to close Fish Rock and Green Island to all forms of fishing is a disappointing reality. Let’s hope sanity prevails. There is a meeting on the 21st July at Kempsey RSL at 4pm to protest against this, all are welcome.
