Weekly Report 28/3/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Mar 28, 2008 11:33 am

We have great conditions here at the moment, nice blue water, good currents and a mixed bag of fish coming in. Spotted mackerel were very finicky last week, making them hard to hook up but there was the odd quality fish caught. Wahoo are about in good numbers up to 20kg off Grassy and down to Fish Rock, smashing live baits. Snapper fishos are using plastics for great results early mornings with some monster pearlies finding their way into the fish box as well. Yellowfin and mackerel tuna are also in good numbers while Fish Rock has the odd king, like Denis Morton’s 19.2kg cracker. Cobia have been coming in off the Jail Peak with some around 30kg.
Fishing the beaches has been a mixed bag with whiting on Smoky with some nice trevally caught late last week. There were a few tailor caught along the beach while flathead have been pulled out at the Hat Head end of Smoky. Still down at the Hat, some big longtail tuna have been coming in off the rock ledges.
It has been a little tough in the river over the week with fishos battling to find a productive area. Flathead are in fair numbers, whiting are in good numbers around the oyster barn at Rainbow while if you’re chasing bream, drifting the north wall to the Cut has been successful. Good reports from Smithtown for whiting and flathead and bass are on the bite from Kempsey up, smashing surface lures.
