Weekly Report 11/1/08

If it floats and it was big enough to go over the bar, it was out there after more than a week of huge seas backed off and holidaymakers could get on the ocean. The FAD has been producing some nice mahi mahi with a few kings. There has been the odd marlin sighted around this area with only one or two hook-ups. Frank Venezia was handlining from his Jetski with a Lively bibless lure and caught a 7kg yellowfin tuna. Black Rock was working well for James Wilson and the boys for cobia, snapper and kings while Fish Rock has mostly small kings with the odd snapper. All reports from up North were slow apart from some nice pearlies out wide.
There are good gutters are along Smoky Beach after the big seas holding bream with whiting in the shallows. Back Beach has been fishing well for bream after dark while whiting have been on Front Beach in good numbers. Rockhoppers are seeing good results with some thumper bream and the odd tuna in close.
With dirty fresh water and weed still coming down towards the mouth, the river has been tough to fish. The breakwall has been fishing well for bream on an incoming tide while nice flathead are coming in around the shallows. Whiting are about but it’s tough in the dirty water. We have the clear whiting poppers back in stock that are magic on these fish.
