Weekly Report 6/6/08

Post by Tony Zann » Fri Jun 06, 2008 3:03 pm

Sloppy conditions and a mongrel bar put a dampener on blue-water fishing last week so reports were few and far between. Before the change we had some good fish on the northern reefs with trag, samson fish and a few good snapper. The charter guys got big pearl perch in about 80m. Fishing in close around Green Island, some nice bream were landed with plenty of tailor and bonito on the troll. The word from Port Macquarie is that the leatherjackets are on their way up for their annual winter run.
Big tides and a lot of dirty water and rubbish coming down the Macleay made fishing the river a little frustrating. The fish of the week was James Hassett’s 3.84kg snapper caught in the river off the breakwall on a herring. Blackfish are on the bite with the Back Creek the hot spot. They are biting better on a black weed at the moment but, like green weed, it’s tough to find. Bream are about while reports of smaller flathead and chopper tailor are coming in.
The beaches have been slow with Smoky giving up a few bream and tailor and the odd flathead in the shallow water taking pilchards and mullet strips. There have been a few good drummer off the rocks with tailor and bream coming in as well.
