Weekly Report 25/1/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jan 25, 2008 1:28 pm

Better late than never, we finally have some fish in close. Over the past few days, cobia have been on the bite just off the Jail in some good blue water, feeding on live yakkas and slimies. They’re not huge at this stage but they are there in good numbers. Small black marlin are starting to show up around the 11-fathom reef with a few bigger blues out wider. The FAD is working well for mahi mahi with The Rocks Fishing Charters boat landing a 28kg bull among some nice fish. Ken Lyons and Bob Laws fished out the front for a 22 kg spanish mackerel and a nice cobia head after a shark had a feed. Fish Rock has had some cracker kings around it while yellowfin are in good numbers between the Jail and the Rock. Grassy and Scotts still haven’t started to fire yet with no sign of the spotties.
Whiting are still being pulled out of Smoky and Gap beaches with the odd bream as well. Front Beach towards Trial Bay has had some smaller whiting.
With the river slowly clearing up, bream have come on the bite. The popper phenomenon continues to lure some big whiting in the shallows and on sandy flats. Peter O’Dell from Kempsey has landed some great flathead up to 4kg while one of his bream went 1.10kg. The oyster racks at Rainbow and Clybucca have been hot spots using soft and hard bodied lures for bream and whiting.
