Weekly Report 7/3/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Mar 07, 2008 12:56 pm

We have waited a while but finally a week of perfect conditions to head outside or drop a line off the end of a jetty. What’s going on the elusive spotted mackerel off Grassy? It seems they’re on one day and then have two or thee off, that’s how it’s been over the last few weeks, but have a go, it might be your day. Snapper have been there as a back-up in close and out wider. Yellowfin are in good numbers between the jail and Fish Rock jumping all over trolled bibless lures. Kingfish are also around the rock but you struggling to get one over size. Visitors did well on the 60-fathom line for kings up to 8kg. Wahoo are making an appearance, playing havoc with trolled lures. Mackerel tuna and bonito are in good numbers in close.
Gap Beach has slowed down with reports of a few whiting while Smoky is where you should be for a feed. Whiting are in good numbers in shallow water and bream are about in the gutters. Tailor are back in the surf, no size at this stage but in good numbers.
The river is clearing and whiting have been a little more active in the shallows. Good reports of flathead from Jerseyville to the mouth with small mullet and herring being jumped on. One of our visitors caught three 15 kilo-plus jew last week but the location remained his secret. Bonito have been at Jew Bite for a bit of fun with some good bream along the wall.
