Weekly Report 15/2/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Feb 15, 2008 11:45 am

Once again our river bar lived up to its reputation with big pressure waves creating havoc with the boaties. If you can get out, the ocean conditions are OK with some good fish about. Kings have been good value around Fish Rock with plenty over legal size. Grassy and Scotts heads fished well for snapper in the dirty water between 20m and 30m with the odd pearl perch. One or two small black marlin have been spotted but at the moment they’re not interested in taking baits. Fair numbers of cobia are being caught out in front with the average around 10kg. Live bait was easier to get last week with plenty off the Jail Reef and the buoys. The water temp has dropped again so the mahi mahi are scarce around the FAD. There were only a couple of spotties up north but let’s hope the best is yet to come.
Rockhoppers are getting a few tailor and the odd bream off the ledges while local Phil Saul hooked three trevally around 2kg-plus and some tailor on metal spinners. The beaches have been a little slow with a few whiting and dart around off Smoky.
Bream were on the bite towards the river mouth on the run-in tide but there is no escaping the dirty water and clumps of weed coming down. Flathead are in reasonable numbers nailing coloured plastics as well as livies. If you don’t mind fishing in the mud, Smithtown around the bridge has been productive.
