Weekly Report 27/07/07

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jul 27, 2007 3:28 pm

Plenty of fishos out wetting a line last week with a break from the south-westerlies blowing you out of the water. With the conditions on the water so good, guys ventured out wide to chase bar cod. Wal Savin and Shane van Dyk got amongst the cod with the best going 18.2kg while young local Joseph Dall’acqua, out with Rod Payne, hooked a nice 12kg unit. Snapper are on the northern reefs but have been hard to find in numbers. Pearlies are about if you can get past the millions of leatherjackets. Good tailor around Green Island while Fish Rock has some fair kingfish.
Cracker bream are still being caught in the river with plenty over the kilo mark. Flathead are about with the Gulp plastics working extremely well on these fish. Blackfish are there in masses at the moment but were tough to catch in any numbers over the last week, it did seem cabbage was the preferred bait but it can change on a daily basis. Good bream and flathead were reported at Smithtown along with some smaller bass.
Rockhoppers are doing well on good bream and a few trevally, while the tailor fishermen have been cleaning up with good size fish.
Smoky is still the hot spot if you fish the surf. There has been bream in most gutters and reports of big whiting all the way down to Hat Head. Tailor are still around but not in big numbers. Beach fishos should dust off their bigger gear because the salmon are coming to give you a work-out.
