Weekly Report 7/09/07

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Sep 07, 2007 4:30 pm

It’s been a bit of a wipe-out this week for the outside fishers with only a few braving the conditions. Fish Rock was fishing well for some nice kings and respectable snapper. Charter boat Gunrunner, while dragging big baits for kings, hooked a 160kg black marlin but it spat the hooks. Northern reefs were producing snapper and pearlies. (Pearl perch now have a bag of five and legal length of 30cm).
The blackfish have gone off the bite while the water has colour through it. They are still biting their heads off at Hat Head so hopefully we have a few weeks before they disappear. Bream are feeding well along the breakwall, some around a kilo. Flathead numbers are starting to improve, just in time for the Trial Bay Marine Flathead competition on September 16 from 6am at the boatshed.
Salmon are still on the beaches taking pillies with the odd bream and whiting on live worms. There’s the odd tailor there for the rock hoppers along with bream, blackfish and some drummer.
