Weekly Report 8/2/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Feb 08, 2008 4:53 pm

Offshore: The conditions last week were less than ordinary, mainly due to our angry bar. Boats got out at the end of last week to a green ocean with the water temp about 21°. Cobia were in limited numbers with the best around 20kg. Small black marlin were hard to find but there was some success from guys downrigging in about 30m. All looks promising with plenty of bait around and strong southerly currents bringing warmer water down. There were no spotties last week off Grassy to report but the odd nice snapper came out of that area.
Estuary: That dirty water just keeps coming down from the mountains with a couple of weeks still before we get some clear water. At the end of the breakwall good bream up to a kilo are coming in along with some big flathead. One of our visitors picked up an 8kg cobia around the Jew Bite on dead bait while there were a few smaller cobia around the Jerseyville bridge. Whiting are on the bite around the shallow flats in the same area. Fishos playing with lures are smashing the bream in the dirty water around any sort of structure. Some are small but good fun if you’re waiting for the seas to calm down outside.
Beaches: Whiting are on Smoky Beach, not in big numbers but they are quality fish. The odd bream coming out of Back Beach on an incoming tide with a few whiting as well. You need to pick your day but there are tailor and bream off the rocks and a walk down to the lighthouse should be worthwhile.
